I skipped converting my h264 files to ProRes 422 before i started editing.

I edited with the h264 files and then exported ProRes 422. Will this process result in a lose of quality ?

Thanks in advance to all who respond

No. There would not be any quality loss. You have the choice of either trancoding to pro res 422 in the beginning before the editing or you could do it when exporting. However for color correction, its easier to do with Pro-res footage.

He wants to know about all kinds of things: ancient history, nineteenth-century mathematics, current manufacturing techniques, flower arranging, and hog futures. Because he never knows when these ideas might come together to form a new idea. It may happen six minutes later or six months, or six years down the road. But he has faith that it will happen." -- Carl Ally
