Hi,

as we might choose Premiere Pro to be our facilitys next editor I'm curious to know are there any performance differences (or problems) between ProRes and Native Codecs (on Mac)? Why I'm asking this is that I know Adobe Premiere Pro has to use Quicktime for decoding ProRes and as far as I know it's still 32-bit component (even in CS6?).

So we take all our material from broadcast servers as full programs and have to transcode those to some other format with Telestream FlipFactory. We have been using ProRes LT and we know Premiere Pro works with ProRes LT but would Premiere Pro's performance be even better if we'd use for example XDCAM HD or AVC-intra which both are natively supported by Premiere Pro? Has anyone run such tests?

Best

premiere is codec-agnostic.

It works well with whatever you import.

literally smooth as butter.

I've used: NXCAM / F35 / RED / ProRes / P2 / XDCAM

It all just works, and very smoothly if you have
a Quadro card and a fast RAID.

The last 4 edit projects I've done were all with premiere.
2 of them client supervised. It went really smooth.

I'm very pleased with Premiere and excited about CS 6.

Always nice to hear of positive experiences, especially in client supervised sessions. Congrats!

what I love the most Tom, is not having to waste time transcoding
footage and resizing huge image files (things fcp couldn't deal with)

that and the ultrakeyer have enabled possibilities and time saving
the likes I've never known.

CS 6 is going to take it up a notch in a huge way as you know! :)

So I'm using Premiere, and doing my best to learn about codecs and such on my own, and I have a question. I saw an article that says since Premiere edits the native footage (in my case, a 5D mk ii) in it's compressed codec, Premiere is editing the p frames and other ones. With Apple pro res, it said it's all i-frames? So when you do splits and color correct separate cuts, it has to re-order the frames for each time you edit the native codec, which is more taxing on the processor than editing i-frames with pro res?

Is that true? And if it is, does it really make a difference?
