No! FFMPEG is a command line tool only!
Actually ProRes files can be read on Windows systems if Quicktime 7 is installed! Adobe Premiere, After Effects, Grass Valley EDIUS, Sony Vegas & other NLE systems are using the QT API to read ProRes files.

Sadly, encoding ProRes with FFMPEG is a seperate extra step!
So you have to export the whole timeline & feed it to FFMPEG or use the awesome Debugmode Frameserver to do this directly.

Maybe ffdshow will be able to decode it in future releases!

Yes, FFMPEG is a command line tool. However it's based upon libavcodec (which actually is the one which have gotten prores support). Libavcodec is also used in the Linux version of Nuke, so with an updated libavcodec library for the Nuke writer in Linux and you got prores support.

We have a Windows GUI program for ffmpeg what does include also presets for ProRes.
It is portable and free.

It has patchp rocessing, parallel processing and is able to control several more programs like ffmbc, VirtualDub, x264, HandBrake etc.

Wow, a valuable GUI! Works like a charm!
Would you see any chance to make directshow or VfW codecs work on input just to feed such files to FFMPEG or FFMBC?
Maybe this can be work by creating temporary dummy *.AVS files or otherwise?
Another thing, could you place the import button for presets on main screen?
Thanks a lot, Priit! Great work!

Cheers

VfW and DirectShow files have worked for me as much as I have used.
Not sure how they are implemented in ffmpeg.
Do you know what container and audio/video codec does your source have? May be you can put a short sample somewhere to download?

It depends in source but in some case we use ffmbc instead of ffmpeg but it doesn't encode ProRes AFAIK.

We have used also AviSynth files for ffmpeg or VirtualDub input.
Specially if we needed to encode from Red R3D files for offline editing.

I will put the Preset Import Button on my TO DO list.

Thanks for the kind words.

Thanks a lot for your fast reply!
The codec I use is not supported by FFMPEG!
It's a proprietary HQ codec from GrassValley, great in quality but not free & not available for programmers! Sadly... ;)

Cheers
