QuickTime 1.0, codenamed "Warhol", was originally released for Macintosh System 6 in December 1991. Adobe Premiere 1.0 had also been in development by Randy Ubillos and was one of the first QuickTime-based video editors on the market.
QuickTime MPEG Extension
QuickTime Musical Instruments
QuickTime VR allowed for 360-degree navigation in multimedia titles.
QuickTime 7 introduced QTKit in April 2005 as a new 64-bit framework in the transition leading up to QuickTime X. Classic QuickTime (pre-X) and QTKit have since been deprecated in favor of AVFoundation and AVKit, which originated on Apple's iOS platform and have now become the default media framework for macOS.
Apple discontinued QuickTime development for Windows since version 7.7.9, leading the U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team to recommend the removal of obsolete versions of QuickTime from Windows computers due to the lack of future security updates. Adobe discontinued support for the classic 32-bit versions of QuickTime and its legacy formats since April 2018 and ported the ProRes codecs of QuickTime X to support its Windows apps.
