Hello All:

Admittedly, I'm still a learner when it comes to the wide world of codecs, conversion and compression, and I have a situation I could use some guidance on.

I have an animated short which I completed using Premiere CS4 (this platform has worked better with my stop motion animation work). However, I may soon have to provide a quicktime copy encoded in Apple Pro Res 4:2:2. The original project is 1080p.

Initial idea was to export to something handled by Final Cut, and from there export my pro-res, but I'm concerned about the loss in quality. I thought perhaps there was another way, or a program for PC (perhaps even something in Media Encoder I've missed) that would enable me to make the file I need without having to leapfrog to another OS.

Any help would be very much appreciated by this learner!

Best,

BR

There is currently no way to produce ProRes on anything other than an Apple Mac (or an Alexa camera, or a few other trivial exceptions). You'll have to go to a Mac to do it. Use an uncompressed codec in the native colour format of your project to do this losslessly.

Yep, that's what I figured I'd have to do. Thanks a lot for your input, Phil! I really appreciate it!
