In previous versions i could export to quicktime using custom production settings, now I can't. I used quicktime because it gave a crisper export movie, then i would use quicktime pro to export to m4v format fo my web site. 

so, where has that export option gone?

The word in a previous thread about this is Apple is behind this decision. They're no longer supporting windows conversions.

Here is the thread.

Hello there Jonathan Pickup
It's a bit of a catch 22 situation to be sure.

The QuickTime codecs themselves, don't pose a security risk for Windows users. They don't connect to the internet like the QuickTime Player.
Apple no longer updates the Quick-time Player for Windows. This is why it presents a security problem for Windows users.

There is a way to install the codecs safely without the QuickTime player. Adobe users still produce QuickTime videos without issue using Creative Cloud applications for 2017. See Image.

I still import QuickTime videos with transparency into Camtasia 8 if need be.You can also produce QuickTime movies.So your not dead in the water completely if you don't mind continuing to use Camtasia 8 instead.

TechSmith remove that functionality from Camtasia 9 altogether.

The attached video is my favorite video explaining the nuts and bolts of QuickTime and it's codecs.
