This is a so called extension to
the Tcl/Tk scripting language that provides simple bindings to
QuickTime on the Mac and Windows. With just a few lines of code you get access to
the main parts in QuickTime, and can do amazing things without
writing any C code. Every window you see above are made in Tcl/Tk. The
Tcl/Tk language is fairly complete so you can start writing your own
The main features of this package are:
- Simple playback of audio
and video in a movie widget; for instance, play mp3, view VR panoramas,
most video and sound formats, streaming live content from a broadcaster,
shockwave/flash, etc. Remote (URL) connections can be made
- A sequence grabber widget
that previews and captures video and audio from an external source, such as
a Web camera or a DV video camera, via the serial port, USB, or
- Editing commands, such as
cut, copy and paste, both on complete movies and down to individual tracks.
Video effects through dialogs.
- Versatile methods for making movies from individual images,
supporting sequence compression, usage of all appropriate QT codecs,
compression levels, key frame rate etc.
- All available video effects in a single line of code.
- Exporting to a number of
audio/video formats via dialogs.
- Most still image formats are
supported implicitly by QuickTimeTcl but via Tk's own image widget.
...and many more things. The package is completely integrated into Tcl/Tk so you can use a movie widget just as any Tk widget.
