This guide will show you how to export your video to the MPEG-4 format using 3ivx and QuickTime Pro.

QuickTime Pro is the Swiss Army knife of multimedia editing. It provides enhanced playback, simple editing, basic effects and import/export of many types of media.

Before starting make sure that you have a suitable source. You can use any source file you want, as long as it contains video and properly plays back in QuickTime.
