[Matt Lyon] "Wouldn't ProRes actually be MORE processor intensive, due to its more sophisticated decoding requirements during playback? "

ProRes is not actually processor intensive Matt, it's a high performance codec, meaning, it's just the opposite of processor intensive.

ProRes was designed to enable realtime playback of fairly large and fairly lossless files on smaller and less expensive hard drives that could not handle 10-bit uncompressed due to its requirements for massive throughput (i.e. 6 to 8 drive RAIDs minimum).
