QuickMotion gives your OS/2 system the power to play QuickTime, Quicktime VR, and Windows-style AVI movies by seamlessly integrating QuickTime support into OS/2 multimedia. As a 32-bit extension for OS/2 multimedia, it gives all of your OS/2 multimedia applications the ability to play these new types of movies.

QuickMotion can do this because it contains a complete QuickTime engine, with support for all the most popular video and audio decompressors (Indeo, Cinema, Animation, IMA, etc.). Version 2.0 adds support for Virtual Reality objects and single- and multi-node panoramas.

Included with QuickMotion is QuickFlick, a native plugin for the OS/2 version of Netscape Navigator that uses QuickMotion to let you experience QuickTime-enhanced web sites the way they were meant to be experienced. QuickFlick can also be run directly from your desktop

QuickMotion Version 2.0 has native OS/2 support for QuickTime Virtual Reality. Now QuickMotion puts you in control of the largest collection of virtual objects and panoramas on the web - QuickTime VR movies!
