     -To create a 10 second QuickTime movie containing a Quartz Composer track
              of the Particle System composition:

              ticle Systems/Particle System.qtz" ~/example.mov 640 480 10

     -To merge two video tracks (30s each) together using an image transition
              protocol abiding composition (Swing for example) in the Quartz
              Composer Repository (using its identifier: /swing):
              qc2movie /swing ~/merged-example.mov 640 480 60 --input-
              MoviePath1 ~/firstVideo.mov --inputMoviePath2 ~/secondVideo.mov
              --duration 2

     -To apply an image filter protocol abiding composition to the video track
              of a movie:
