Artbeats FAQs

Why won't my Macintosh video editing system import a clip that I downloaded, but I can open the clip in QuickTime Player?

Some resellers that allow downloading of Artbeats clips use a ".qt" file name extension instead of the more common ".mov" extension. The clip might be named something like "" after you download it. That's a perfectly legal file name on the Macintosh, but some applications don't understand the ".qt" extension and the special Mac headers may have been stripped from the file.

Rename the clip with just the ".mov" extension and it should import into Final Cut, iMovie, or any other QuickTime based editing system.
