  When going from an SGI to a Mac, the file must have a creator and
  file type.  This can be done in "ResEdit".

  To move a file to the Mac...

  1. Save the file in a QuickTime format.  See elsewhere in this FAQ
     for more details on how to create QuickTime files.
  
  2. Move the file to a Mac (using the floptical, or ftp).

     NOTE:  If using ftp, make sure the mode is binary, *not* macbinary

  3. Open the Mac program "ResEdit".

  4. Select "Get File info..." from File menu.

  5. Type "MooV" into file type field, and "TVOD" into creator field.

  6. Close dialog (Choose Yes to save changes).

  7. Quit "ResEdit".

  It should just work from here.
