Importing apple prores 4444 into premiere pro cc 2015

Hi all,

I am trying to import and edit footage shot on an Arri Alexa using Premiere Pro CC (2015 edition), on a Windows 10 (64bit) operating system. The footage is formated as Apple Prores 4444 QX (2048 x 1152) mov.

To begin, I tried to import the footage but Premiere would not recognise the format, so having done a quick internet search, I read that I would need the latest version of Quick Time (7.7.9), which would have the necessary codecs to allow compatibility, so I downloaded that, but having tried to import again, I now receved the message that the files had no audio and no video, and neither could QuickTime play the files - it would direct me to a page to get additional software, but the page is always blank.

The strange thing is, I can see the visual thumbnails on the videos, and they play fine on a Mac, but I can’t play them on my laptop, and have recently downloded VLC player and K-Lite Codec packs, but still the files won’t play or import. I’ve even re-installed my operating system, and Premiere too.

I read somewhere that “Premiere can import ProRes natively on Windows”, yet the solution has not been presented or written down, so I am stuck with footage I can’t edit.

Is there a solution? A codec I need to download?

If all else fails, and I have to transcode the footage into a compatible format/codec, can anyone reccomend a good encoder and format I’d need to transcode to, to maintain the high quality for the edit?

Thank in advance!

Elcid

May we assume you've turned your machine off and then turned it back on again?

And I'd get rid of those crummy K-Lite codecs. They'll do more harm than good. Not to mention they're about as useful as DIVX.

Prores XQ doesn't work on Premiere in Windows. They might open in Resolve.
