See also DiVA, a high-speed video encoder, also from 3ivx, that needs the D4 4.5 3ivx video plug-in for OS X 10.2 and higher, which is no longer available online. 3ivxCrush was their next-generation encoder for PPC, optimized for G5 Macs.

The latest 30-day trial of 3ivx for Leopard 10.5.8 can be downloaded from the 3ivx website. Unfortunately, 3ivx no longer sells nor supports any of their 3ivx software.

3ivx is actually really useful because it creates standard MPEG-4 output. That is, at least ver. d4_451 does which is what I have. I'm not sure about this version--you'll have to try it.

What this means is that you can *export* using 3ivx, which is faster and better quality (per kilobyte) than QuickTime 6's built-in MPG4 codec, then playback using QT. Playing back *using 3ivx* leads to crashes (again, that's with d4_451). Of course, this may mean restarting with 3ivx removed from the extensions folder for playback, which isn't a big deal if you've exported a 60 min video....
