i still haven't figured out what the difference is between exporting a film to "quicktime movie" and "quicktime conversion." i think maybe it's that the latter allows you to upload the film to streaming video on the web. anyone?
this is how i do tech stuff. can't bear to read manuals, although i do, but it's often so much more efficient to ask someone you know. i've learned almost everything i know about tech stuff in this way (and i don't know much, but i'm not completely illiterate). i wonder if this is cool or if it's just annoying (ask Mark Crane, whose help i seek often). maybe both, but i think most of us feel some obligation to catch up those who desire it.
