PhotoJPEG Quicktime Support
Every studio review we have requires us to submit photoJPEG quicktimes as VFX dailies alongside our Avid and EXRs. Would be nice to have so I dont have to script a solution with ffmpeg.

Yes, I am literally providing output for the 2019 Grammy's and LA Live signage, which requires PhotoJPEG QT codec. Why get rid of it completely? It's not like they needed to save space.
Quicktime png... not a sequence. something similar w/audio

just spent hours trying to figure out why I couldn't export as quicktime pjpg. or quicktime png, when I could just a few days ago. This is ridiculous.

QT PhotoJPEG is one my most used codecs, be it for quick preview rendering or delivering final renders. All microstock sites I'm delivering footage to prefer files to be encoded with QT PJPEG. Several of my internal workflows depend heavily on this codec. As a result, I cannot upgrade the affected Adobe software by any means until QT PJPEG support is on board again. What a bummer. Please, Adobe, this needs to be fixed!

Adding another comment to help quantify my hope that PhotoJPEG QuickTime will be supported. I did a "Codecs" search on mac OS X for media files using PhotoJPEG and 6,751 files came back. Granted, it's highly unlikely that I'll ever have to convert all of them at the same time, but it would be great to know that they'll decompress in the Adobe applications that I use on a daily basis.
No format previously supported by an app should be dropped for the simple reason of legacy access to old media. I do have plenty of old photoJPEG archives but that's not the point. Lots of people do and dropping it hurts us all.
QT Photo jpg is a codec that is often used for visuals and vjing. There are scenarios and systems were hap or similar modern codecs are not supported. It would be quite bad if after effects would not be able to render out Qt Foto Jpg anymore.

This is a big requirement for me and I'm sure others.
photoJPEG is a standard delivery spec for the largest client in film VFX (multiple films a year with 10-20 studios/vendors providing vfx).
We would have no choice but to incorporate other software into our process, which would be undesirable.
