I'm editing a piece in FCP in ProRes at 720p24. And I'm creating a short animation in AE for that piece. I don't see any ProRes options in After Effects, when creating a new composition. Am I missing something? Or do I need to create the animation in a different codec than the target codec in FCP?

Sorry, but unless you have Final Cut Suite installed on your machine, you don't have access to normal ProRes 422. Thanks a lot, Apple.

If it's any consolation, the latest versions of QT 7 Pro have ProRes LT and ProRes HQ.

You don't set an output codec when you create a composition, but rather when you render. The codec options are listed inside the Output Module > Format Options > Compression type:
