I have an avi video-file I mastered in Premiere Pro on a pc. I need to convert this into a quicktime file without losing any quality. Are there any good little, preferably free, converters out there some kind soul can suggest?
I have Final Cut Express 4 & tried to put it in there but it asked me to basically lay down all the clips & start again. Don't wanna. Help!!

Running IMac 2.4 system.

I had a look at Quicktime on the IMac &it only seems to come with a basic Quicktime player, with no apparent conversion capability. But does suggest I should purchase Quicktime Pro.
Am I missing something in Quicktime?

try iSquint, and if you like it, buy VisualHub.

If this is something you'll be doing a lot of, look for ffmpegx.

It'll convert everything, nearly.
