Chapter 6. Basic Movie Editing > Having Multiple Windows Open in QuickTime Play...

Having Multiple Windows Open in QuickTime Player

By default, when you open a new linear movie in QuickTime Player, that movie replaces whatever movie appears in your already-open window—which is somewhat inconvenient for many editing tasks. Far more convenient would be to have multiple windows open simultaneously.

To open a movie in its own window:

1.
From the File menu, choose New Player (Figure 6.19).

Figure 6.19. If you want a movie to appear in its own window, choose File > New Player before choosing File > Open Movie.


An empty Player window opens.

2.
From the File menu, choose Open Movie.

An Open dialog box appears, in which you can locate and select the movie you want to open.

or

1.
Hold down the Option key (Mac OS) or Ctrl and Alt keys (Windows) while pulling down the File menu.

You see that Open Movie in New Player replaces Open Movie in the File menu.

2.
Choose Open Movie in New Player.

An Open dialog box appears, in which you can locate and select the movie you want to open.
