  • Exporting a Feature to ProRes 422 from a PC?

    I know this has been asked a million times, but I need to do it again. I shot a feature on the Scarlet, edited in Premiere on a desktop PC, that is due to a distributor in a few days. They absolutely need ProRes 422. What is the simplest/cheapest way to accomplish that?

    I’ll add that I’ve got, separately, a MacBook with Premiere, but it would be a giant hassle opening the file on the Mac. Is there a format I could export on my PC, import on my Mac and then export again? I don’t need to do it that way; just curious.

    you can use ffmpeg (via AnotherGui) on pc to convert a quicktime to ProRes (I usually make a DNXHD clip first):

    I’ve done it many times and the files have passed broadcaster muster.

    Excellent. Thank you so much. Stupid question: once I’ve downloaded the codec, what’s the next step so that I can export ProRes from Premiere?

    I’ve never used it, but I’d guess you have to choose the QuickTime format and the ProRes codec under the Video tab in the Export Setting window.
    You may want to google it further first.

    Once the codec is installed, will it appear there automatically?

    It should.

    I bought the Miraizon codec a week or so ago and was over the moon to find myself able to export directly to ProRes from After Effects – most clients want delivery on that format which has generally meant dragging everything over to a Mac for a final conversion.

    However, I’ve since found that Premiere won’t work with Quicktime at all when Miraizon Prores is installed – I can’t import anything with a .mov wrapper (generic error) and I can’t play any Quicktime files already imported into a project (media not found).

    As soon as I uninstall the codec this problem is solved and Premiere works as normal. Having the codec installed has no negative effect on After Effects, only Premiere and means I’m constantly installing and uninstalling it every time I want to use Premiere!

    Not getting much response from Miraizon but they say there are other reports of this from users – does anyone else have this problem and by chance any solution? If we could turn off the Miraizon codec for reading Quicktimes and only have it for authoring, I think this would solve it but I can’t figure out a way to do that…

    Excellent bit of software with a major flaw for me…

    Sounds like different Quicktime SDK versions were used by Miraizon and Premiere. I have seen this before when there is a common file share that gets overwritten to a version Premiere doesn’t recognize. Is this CC or older version of Premiere?

    Thanks for the response Eric – I’ve got both CS6 and CC installed and it’s happening on both versions exactly the same. Any help solving it would be gratefully received!
