Create a mosaic of movie clips in QuickTime Player

Great idea. Thanks!

I have done something similar manually, when putting together some music videos of sports footage. I had captured all of the plays the clients had logged, plus some b-roll, so I had lots of clips to work with.

I opened dozens of clips in QT Pro, shrunk each to Half Size (Cmd-0, as in "zero"), toggled looping (Cmd-l, as in "L") and then moved them around on the screen so I could see a "wall of videos". Then I rearranged them on the screen occasionally, to help me sort of "storyboard" a bit. I found this quicker than trying to review & compare the clips in Final Cut Pro.

I wish I'd had your tip then -- it would have saved me some clicking and dragging! I was already doing a lot of that.
