can't find info on this..
what's best work flow for me?

convert mark ii's files to ProRes via Compressor then convert to "X file type" for AE then export ProRes 422 from AE back to FCP, ProRes out from FCP to Compressor and h264 out from compressor for web.

I've been importing ProRes into AE and it crashes every time. What should I be importing?? please help!

There's no X, ProRes is the correct choice.
Do you have the latest update for your version of AE?
I haven't heard of any crashing issues.

I'm on CS4 on an MB Pro and work with ProRes all the time.

I've heard there were some issues with the latest ProKit update, but hadn't heard any mention of problems related to QT files.

I got CS5. Well i thought so too but Dave LaRonde wrote:

"AE does not seem to like pro res especially when you render to something other than a local disk."

And that guy seems to know everything. Maybe I should try saving the ProRes files to the desktop instead of the raid array.

Personally, I have not had any of those issues lately. Back with CS2/CS3 AE would sometimes have issues with the DVCPRO and DVCPRO-HD codecs and what was referred to as a blinking gamma.

I'm on AE CS4 10.5.8/FCP 7.0.3/QT 7.6.6

In AE I render to either Animation or ProRes422 without issues. All renders go to my CalDigit HDPro (not local disk).
