I used to export my edits to PoRes 422 HQ for long-term robust high quality storage but this is no longer available on Media Encoder (I’m using the latest CC 2014 version). I know about the arduous process of downloading the preset once you have FCPX etc..
What would you recommend as the best highest quality to file size ratio for saving material so it can be used in edits later on and/or stored long-term?

ProRes is still available as an export option in CC, provided you have the codecs on your computer. My shops workflow revolves around ProRes through Adobe software. The easiest way to get the codecs is to purchase Compressor from the App Store for $50, and then download the ProApps Codecs bundle from Apple: https://support.apple.com/kb/dl1396
A comprable codec to ProRes is DNxHD. But as the name implies, it only does HD resolutions (no 2K or 4K) – https://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/en_US/download/Avid-Codecs-LE-2-3-9?
