F4V is an mpeg4/h.264 file. Compressor should be able to do it or MPEG Streamclip.

Hi Steve, Mpeg Streamclip doesn't give me the option to turn it into Apple ProRes 422, it gives the option to turn into Apple Intermediate Codec but will that lose quality?.....


I don't have compressor on my computer unfortunately as the directors computer I'll send it to has FCP and I don't. My project contains MOVs and when I go into Adobe Media Encoder and try and import the pro res codec under the quicktime selection it says incompatible video codec which seems to suggest it won't let me make any pro res files because I don't have FCP on my computer so is there absolutely no way of making a pro res file if you don't have FCP.

The crux is I have this project file in Premiere Pro CS5.5 which contains the original MOVs and time adjusted movs that I nested and turn into F4vs, so it contains movs and f4vs with 1 aiff file and I need to send the work to the director(who has FCP7 and works on a Apple computer) so they can key out the green screen and grade it in FCP7. I don't want to send them 1 big video file because there are a hell of a lot of fast flickering cuts so would be easier if they could view as a project file in FCP7 like I can see it in Adobe Premiere Pro. I haven't done this before as you can tell but someone must of tried doing this before so how can it be done?

My project settings in Premiere Pro are

Editing mode: DSLR

If you don't have the proper codecs available to you, it sounds like the director needs to do this. Apparently, he has 'em.

This is tricky. I would do the finish in Premiere,

Oh you can save the premiere project file as a transfer file and import it in FCP. Then relink to the original footage,

cheers
