Quicktime media is only store by reference--can't be stored as a binary object inside the container. When you move the file to another computer of any type, your quicktime files must also be copied to the other computer in such fashion that the references remain a valid path to the files.
Apparently drag and drop of pictures from iPhoto into Filemaker Pro is by default "store by reference" to the iPhoto file. If one moves the Filemaker database to another machine, a PC in this case, the reference link to the iPhoto library is of course broken. So this is not a PC vs Mac issue, but the inability to change default so that the drag and drop works for porting a database to another machine.
Filemaker Folks. if their is a way to change this default so one can use drag and drop it would cut by 5 fold the labor time of right clicking on the container, finding the one in 430 filenames in a dialog list of photos and clicking open --to insert. I have to repeat this onerous 15 -30 second exercise 430 times or whoe day of going out of my mind.
I could do this in a fifth of the time. Ironically the insert by dialog method has "no reference link" as the default option.
"QuikTime and a decompressor are needed to see this picture" is the error I get with Filemaker Pro 11 while opening a database made by my boss. When I right-click on the message, I can "Export field contents". The image saves to my desktop, where I can then open it with QuickTime and it looks fine.
What can I do so Filemaker Pro can display this image for me? It -must- be there, because I can export it.
Filemaker Pro 12 has resolved this issue for me! I can see all the images.
