RM (real media) video - - Question about authoring / editing



Thank you dear friends !

My question is actually about working with both Real Audio / Real Player and Apple Quicktime video encoding formats.

I am going to make the assumption that both of these “video format standards” are propritary - meaning that using this video type for web use requires licensing from the respective company. (real media or apple company)

What software titles am I looking for if I want to convert edit or create content in the RM (real media) or MOV (apple quick time) video format?

I have the real player (standardard player) and also the free quicktime - - Is it simply a matter of buying the “premium” versions of these software viewers which would then allow editing and conversion of video content into RM or MOV format?

Thank you and sincerely,
