I have some DSLR footage that I'd like to transfer to pro res off my PC. Do you know what the best format would be to keep the footage unaltered?  

 

Thanks

Not quite clear what you're trying to achieve. If you need it as ProRes and you're on Windows, you'll need to use either the free tool ffmpeg, or get it onto a Mac and do it with Quicktime.

 

Are you asking for advice as to what variety of ProRes you should use? The one with the highest bitrate should usually provide the most transparent image quality.

Thanks for the help.  I basically have some footage that's on my hard drive that's had sound mixed and color correction done.  It needs to go to pro res for some editing to be completed that's on another computer, being a Mac.

You should use your full real name, it's one of the forum rules.
