Sony a6600 and Mac Quick Actions for Video: Gone?!

I am happily shooting video on my a6600. Until recently, I could trim video files while previewing them in the Finder using the Mac's Quick Actions. [ OS Catalina ]

But the trim function has disappeared. All I have under Quick Actions now is Rotate Left.

I went to the System Preferences and confirmed that I have enabled all Quick Actions, and restarted, yada yada yada.

Did Sony or Apple change something so that those very useful Quick Action functions have been rendered broken?

Can I do something to regain this useful functionality? Trimming at the file system level saves so much time!

Thanks for your help.

I just tried this out in Catalina 10.15.6 and the Quick Actions feature works with QuickTime format video, including the ability to trim, but not with MP4 format files.
