Hello, I have been fighting both the JIMI and QuickTime for Java API's to display .pic images. Needless to day I have FAILED miserably. Does anyone here have ANY hints, direction, clue as to how to get this done? The JIMI documentation is just plain bad, and the Quicktime API throws an unknown exception when I call QTSession.open(); Thank You, Bill
Convert the .pic into .gif, .jpg or .bmp format? As far as I know those are the only formats supported.

hmmm - ok I see that JIMI supports a .pict format is that what you are using?
Jimi's range of supported formats includes GIF, JPEG, TIFF, PNG, PICT, Photoshop, BMP, Targa, ICO, CUR, Sunraster, XBM, XPM, and PCX, although some of these formats do not have complete support for all features.

Well, I figured out the problem. My company develops w/ IBM Visual Age 4.x. The IBM JVM has a problem w/ the Quicktime API call QTSession.close() Which is suppose to free up the system resources being used. When we "guessed" that and JAR'ed a test app and ran it w/ Suns JVM. It worked just fine. Cindy, thank you for your responses.
