Hi!

I am developping a program for Windows XP with Delphi.

I want to show a simple Quicktime movie MOV without sound with this program using the COM/ActiveX of Quicktime.

Here are two questions about Quicktime possibilities:

1.  I need to be able to show the movie frame by frame as a slideshow e.g. every 10 seconds a frame of the movie is shown. Is this possible with Quicktime?

2. Is is possible to use blending in the frame by frame slideshow i.e. that the current frame is faded out during the 10 seconds and the next frame is faded in at the smae time?

Thank you very much!

For your first question: Yes it is very easy to show a quicktime movie frame by frame:
-Simple press the left or right arrow keys on your keyboard, the movie can be in play or pause, either way, it will stop at the frame and go forward or backwards a frame depending whether you press left or right.

-As for the second question, i am not sure what you could do here. the best way i can think of at the moment is just, turning your movie into full screen and taking a screenshot of each frame and putting it into a presentation program such as keynote, powerpoint or openoffice. and adjusting the timing and fades in there.
