Image Sequences and Workflow

Sam here…

Does anyone know of a modern application that can rewrap Image Sequences in a quicktime wrapper (reference movie) the way Quicktime 7 used to?

Here’s a link to a macbreak studio episode that kind of explains what I’m talking about (go to around the 5 minute mark):

I’m trying to make Quicktime 7 EOL in my workflows and this is really the only thing left that I’m still using Quicktime 7 for.

Anyone out there know of anything that can do this?

If Edit Ready from Divergent Media did it, I’d just break down and get it already as it seems like a really useful piece of software that I can’t quite convince myself to buy yet (I already own Compressor that does most of what it does), even with the recently added MXF functionality. Ironically, Divergent Media has another piece of software called ClipWrap that will “wrap” other codecs, but it doesn’t look like there’s anything like that for Image Sequences.

Anyway, if anyone knows a good way to do this on a non-extinct piece of software, please let me know in the comments. Thanks!
