Hi all,

Ok so I am getting my 16mm neg transfered this week. It will be transfered direct to disk. The TK house just asked me what format I would like it in. I told them I will be going to FCP and an Apple ProRes 422 will be fine. But would it be better to go to 'ProRes 422 HQ'?

p.s not that it should make a difference but the neg is cut with 20 frame handles so I will be eliminating them once the file is in FCP.

thanks in advance.

ProRes HQ is the better choice, higher bitrate I believe than typical prores.
