Does Davinci resolve capture prores in windows os?

I kinda read when dr12.5 came out that the windows version could capture prores but could not output prores.
Is this true for version 15?

Capturing from tape to ProRes would mean having the ability to ENCODE to ProRes, and Windows machines don't have the ability to encode to ProRes. No matter what version of Resolve you have, this is true.

Well, you CAN encode to ProRes, with some third party apps, but they aren't licensed to do so, and the encoder doesn't quite encode ProRes properly. If QC looks at it, it'll kick it. But these apps won't aid Resolve in capturing and encoding to ProRes.

Total stinker, as many many clients want ProRes, and that means double encoding on a Windows system.

Hey Shane. Back when I had an Atomos Ninja II (which I used with a Nikon D5500. Can you believe that!?! ;-)) Anyway, I was able to record in ProRes 4:4:4 and work with those files on my old, woefully underpowered PC. I just couldn't export in ProRes. Is that what you meant?

btw, I did find a program called something like Mirabel ProRes for Windows, which as you point out, was nothing like real ProRes.

[Duke Sweden] " I was able to record in ProRes 4:4:4 and work with those files on my old, woefully underpowered PC. I just couldn't export in ProRes. Is that what you meant?"

The Ninja is a device that's cleared to record ProRes. Windows machines cannot encode nor capture to ProRes, as Apple hasn't given them license to. If you get my meaning.

[Duke Sweden] " I did find a program called something like Mirabel ProRes for Windows, which as you point out, was nothing like real ProRes."

Yup...and that will make a file that won't pass QC

Note this is due to decisions made by Apple, so it has nothing to do with Blackmagic or Resolve users per se. One solution is just to buy an affordable Mac (like an iMac Pro) and let that be a ProRes render station. Even some used Macs could do it to a point. The Advanced Linux version can do it ($30K).

Is DNxHD or DNxHR just as good as ProRes, other than in the minds of people who don't know what they're talking about, or is ProRes that much better? I ask, of course, as the amateur that I always point out that I am.

Yes, but there are clients/services that require Prores for delivery so you will need some way to make those files. If you're doing stuff just for your own fun then it doesn't really matter.

My situation is that I plan to purchase the new bmpcc 4k abd these are the codecs:

CinemaDNG RAW, CinemaDNG RAW 3:1, CinemaDNG RAW 4:1, ProRes 422 HQ QuickTime, ProRes 422 QuickTime, ProRes 422 LT QuickTime, ProRes 422 Proxy QuickTime.

Though my system specs can handle some raw I would rather work in something else.

You can import Prores so you can shoot with a camera that records Prores and bring those files in and work with that. You can't export your work out to Prores and you'll need to use something else.

you can bring Prorez in if the drive is formatted Xfat then you will need to have a program to convert it
back to prorez for delivery using a 3rd party app. Just did that. Resolve sees it as prorez. My problem has
only been that drives don't get formatted before they bring me files.
Not sure if this helps

[Jim Williams] "you can bring Prorez in if the drive is formatted Xfat..."

Given the number of cameras that shoot Mac formatted cards and ProRes and the common source of media from editors working on Macs, it makes sense to have Mac Drive software on a PC so that you can read/ write to HFS+ drives. I never relying on editors to understand drive formating going from Mac to Win and they don't have to. Mac Drive software is so cheap compared to the endless to and fro of trying to get people to work with exfat.

I understand that I can deliver prores from fusion studio. Does this mean I can export from resolve studio to fusion studio and export prores?

Yes I believe that is correct Ricardo. I was hoping to see Win PC ProRes export in Resolve 15 the same as Fusion. Blackmagic are in Apple's hands with this however.

Thanks, Tero. As I said I was just asking out of curiosity since, as you pointed out, I do this for fun and delivery codecs aren't important to me.
