Found this cool little free application to do something and thought I’d share: MovieStitch will take a passle of Quicktime movies and stitch them together in one big movie.
Why is this helpful, you ask? In this case, i had to string together a couple hours of MP4 movies from a consumer HD camera that records direct to disk. I don’t have the camera & bringing them into FCP or AE was a hassle (reeeeallllyy long render).
This little app was just drag & drop. You need to have Quicktime Pro on the machine to save the files. And it kills any embedded timecode on the originals. So, it’s not for every instance, but in this case it worked beautifully and saved a bunch of manual effort to get this stuff crunched for output to DVD.
