QuickTime Pro: Making It All Happen Using QuickTime Filters 24 In addition to enabling you to do simple edits to QuickTime movies, QuickTime Player Pro also allows you to apply a variety of effects to movies that you open with it--in QuickTime Player, these effects are called filters. You can use these QuickTime filters for artistic pur- poses, to improve the quality of a QuickTime movie you have created, and for many other reasons. Because of space limitations, I can't explain the details of how this works nor all the options you have, but a quick example will give you the basic idea--you can explore other options on your own. Apply an Embossing Filter to a QuickTime Movie 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Open the movie that you want to emboss. Choose File, Export. You will see the Save exported file as dialog. On the Export pop-up menu, choose Movie to QuickTime Movie. Click the Options button. You will see the Movie Settings dialog. Click the Filter button. You will see the Choose Video Filter dialog. In the left pane, you will see the filters that are available to you. At the bottom left, you will see a thumbnail image of your movie. When you select a filter, its controls appear in the right pane of the window. Click Emboss. The Emboss controls will appear in the window (see Figure 1.12). 6.
