Saving Movies

When you’re done editing, you’ll want to save your work. When saving, it’s important to understand the concept of file dependencies. After you’ve pasted data into a movie, the movie actually contains references (pointers) to the file or files from which you copied the data. The file is then said to have dependencies. You can leave things this way (which saves disk space), but the movie won’t play unless the other files are available. Or you can specify when you save that all the data be moved into the file, making it larger but self-contained.

To save a movie file, allowing dependencies:

1.
From the File menu, choose Save As (Figure 6.62).

Figure 6.62. Choose File > Save As when you want to save a file.


QuickTime Player displays a Save dialog box with a pair of radio buttons at the bottom.

2.
Make sure that the radio button labeled “Save normally (allowing dependencies)” is selected (Figure 6.63).

Figure 6.63. If you want the file to be saved with dependencies, choose the radio button labeled “Save normally (allowing dependencies).”


3.
Name the file, navigate to the location where you want to save it, and click the Save button.
