GC11 fully Catalina compatible?

Post by PakkyT »

I have not upgraded to Catalina yet (just heard today it was made available) but wanted to confirm that the latest version of GC has been tested against Catalina?

A search of the site didn't turn up any mention of Catalina so wanted to confirm.

Thank you.

GraphicConverter 11.1 is fully compatible.

There are no reported issues until now.

My understanding is that with the conversion to Catalina, that some of the QT7 supported media formats are going to be dropped, Is that correct and will that effect some of what GC does? Does GC rely heavily on QT for its format support and conversions? Or does GC support most of the formats directly in the app?

GraphicConverter uses since version 11 only the Apple AVKit. So, it depends no longer on QuickTime.
So, you can't open not supported movies. You will get a message. I suggest to convert such old format i.e. with HandBreak.
