Chapter 4. Creating Interactive Movies

QuickTime container files can hold much more that just audio and video. In fact, you can add entire layers of interactivity to your media. “Wiring” your movies transforms the audience’s experience from merely watching the movie play to playing with the movie while watching it.

The exercises in this chapter present basic interactivity you can achieve with QuickTime Pro.

The Properties window displays the tracks and their settings.
