ProRes is absolutely supported. Nothing deprecated about that. DNxHR will be, but isn't yet.

It's an OS-level issue, not specifically FCPX or any other app. Apple's ProApps and Quicktime Player depend on video libraries supplied in the OS. Beyond the standard codecs installed, additional "pro" codecs can be installed through a Pro Formats Update, generally associated with FCPX.

A codec that is deprecated because it uses 32-bit libraries will still work in the future, if:

a) Apple supplies new 64-bit library components for it. In that case, all apps that use these libraries can read/write those codecs, including FCPX. Or,

b) The third-party company that uses these codecs creates their own internal libraries and doesn't on OS-level components, in order to read/write those files. In that case, those third-party apps can read/write the files, but Apple apps won't necessarily be able to.
