Does AE 7.0 support ProRes 422 (HQ)? If not is there a download or plugin that I can get to bring my AE 7 up to speed?

Prores only comes with Final Cut Pro. So it's more about what version of FCP your running.

Thanks for the quick response. Unfortunately, I don't have FCP so I have to let this project go by the way side.
Thanks again.

ProRes codecs only come with Final Cut Pro. If your computer does not have FCP installed, it cannot view these quicktime files.

If you need to view ProRes material, you can download the ProRes decoder (mac and windows compatible) for ProRes

http://support.apple.com/downloads/Apple_ProRes_QuickTime_Decoder_1_0_for_W...

http://support.apple.com/downloads/Apple_ProRes_QuickTime_Decoder_1_0_for_M...

...and notice I wrote the word "view". Unless you run AE on the same machine running FCP, you can't write to ProRes. Pick a different codec like PNG (not the sequence, the codec) or Animation, both lossless.

This may be redundant, but I want to thank you too.

You could always ask them to supply you with a different format, such as animation or uncompressed. On another note I learned from someone on twitter today that the adobe programs were not interpreting the ProRes 422 color info correctly and he had to go with uncompressed 10bit to keep the grade the same. May be another point to bring up to the potential client.

You should then direct that individual to this post from Adobe's own Todd Kopriva:

Hello,

I am also having issues with Apple ProRes 422 and After Effects. I am running FCP 6 and AFX CS5 and the options are not available to me in either software! I believe I have been able to render ProRes from my laptop that has the same set-up as my Mac Pro but can't from my Mac Pro.

I have tried downloading and installing the component but it doesn't allow me to do so as it says there's an older version already installed on the machine.

Frustrating as my current project requires all media to be output at ProRes and it's a biggie! Any ideas anyone?

Best,
Nina

It sounds as if you have an FCP installation problem on your Mac Pro. You might want to take this issue up on the COW's FCP forum.

Hello Dave,

Thank you so much for your swift comment! As it happens, I copied all the QT components from my laptop's library (both MAC HD and user) to the Mac Pro's libraries and it fixed the problem! I knew the moment I posted I'd find a solution!

Thanks again.

Best,
Nina

I've come across this roadblock to outputting finish quality graphics from my FCP editor on 2010 iMac. See image.

-----

Re: rough FCP graphics output vs AE razor sharp output.

... The HDTV preset in AE is not equivalent to the AppleProRes422 format. This is potentially the issue. The recommended options were to convert the AE footage to the matching format OR drop the completed video into AE for final compositing.

-----

I'd like not to do this finishing step. Is there a way to just output from FCP and get sharp graphics? I already have the ProRes codec viewer installed. I can view his mp4 output for client review. I'm using AE CS3 on a G5 2005 Powermac(not Intel architecture, if that matters), OS 10.5.8. I don't see any ProRes options in my AE Output Module > Quicktime > Format Options. I've been output the Quicktime Animation codec so far.
