Converting a WAV to a QuickTime movie

Converting a WAV to a QuickTime movie

Converting a WAV to a QuickTime movie

I am trying to convert a WAV file into a QuickTime movie file. I managed to easily make one by loading my WAV and calling FlattenMovie. However, this seems to create an uncompressed movie (it was the same size as the original WAV file).

So, I was looking at SoundConverterConvertBuffer. It takes in a pointer to raw audio data and fills a buffer with compressed data. This seems to work (data comes out the other side and the size is smaller), but how do I take this data and turn it into an audio track on a movie?

RE: Converting a WAV to a QuickTime movie

I f  I understand this correctly, all you want to do is convert a WAV file into another QT compatible audio format but what do you want to use the resulting file for?

You mention wanting to use it as an audio track in a movie. Is that what you want to do?

You mention compression. . . what are you going to use the resulting file for? Online streaming? CD-ROM? DVD?

Also, do you have QuickTime Pro or just the standard program.

Conversion, and compression, are pretty straightfroward tasks to accomplish with QT Pro and many other audio tools. But the settings and process depend completely on the intended usage and material you're working with. Give me a bit more info and I can help.
