QuickTime Authoring and Editing

Apple's QuickTime video format—actually, you can include any combination of video, still images, and sound—is supported by any browser with the QuickTime plug-in installed. Chapter 13, "Working with Rich Media," showed you how to add a QuickTime movie to a Web page with GoLive. In this section, you'll learn how to build or edit QuickTime movies in GoLive. Although QuickTime movies are often created and built using video-editing software, GoLive's robust QuickTime Editor allows you to edit QuickTime without ever leaving GoLive. Centralized authoring seamlessly integrated into the page development process makes using QuickTime within GoLive a very attractive option.

QuickTime Authoring Tools

To edit movies in GoLive, you'll use the Movie Viewer and the Track Editor. The Viewer allows you to play and control movies, while the Track Editor controls the tracks and sequencing that comprise the movie. The Objects palette's QuickTime tab includes icons that allow you to add tracks and effects to the timeline. When the Movie Viewer is open, the toolbar contains QuickTime-specific buttons. Finally, like most other GoLive elements, you will use inspectors to configure movies and their elements.
