I just finished editing a project using xdcam rendering with apple pro res.
i then put it on a drive to be printed to tape cuz we cant afford a digi recorder.
I sent it to another post house in and they told me i had to export out the movie uncompressed 10bit for them to print to digi? they are using a kona card so i thought they can play the apple pro res 1920 X 1080 time line and the kona card does the downconvert so no need to export out everything at 720 X 576 widescreen 10bit am am i wrong or wright?

You need to have this discussion with the post house that's doing the layoff. Having it with anyone else is academic. They probably have their reasons for wanting 10 bit UC, maybe their software isn't compatible with ProRes.
If they only want 10 bit UC, then give it to them. If you only want to deliver ProRes, then find another shop that will take it. That's pretty much all there is to it.
