Playing Every Frame

If you’re playing movies on a computer that’s not quite as powerful as you’d like, you should know that QuickTime normally skips (or drops) frames if the computer doesn’t have sufficient power to show the frames as quickly as they are supposed to be shown. You can, however, tell QuickTime Player to show each and every frame—no matter how long it takes.

To play all of a movie’s frames:

1.
From the Movie menu, choose Play All Frames (Figure 3.21).

Figure 3.21. To play all the frames in a movie—no matter how long it takes—choose Movie > Play All Frames.


2.
Play the movie.

Because QuickTime won’t necessarily be able to keep the audio synchronized with the video, no audio plays. On slow machines, movies designed for very fast machines take longer than normal to show all the frames.
