What's tour mastering codec on PC?

I was wondering since there is no ProRes encode on PC what is the mastering codec/format you use on PC?

Avid DNxHD and the new DNxHD444 MXF codecs look pretty interesting as Pro-Res replacements. I think it would be great if Apple would smarten up and allow pro-Res writing on the PC but they probably wont.

I would add Cineform to that list. Pretty fantastic cross platform mastering codec

Numerous bits of Windows software can make ProRes, just at a fee. Telestream Episode 6 is one of them.

Prores output is listed as Mac Only.

I still haven't seen any Windows software that can output Prores yet. I have been looking around a lot...

However, finally there's a free and open source route: ffmpeg has just added Prores encoding and decoding support:

http://ffmpeg.org/

That means Mac, Unix/Linux and Windows support for encoding/decoding Prores via the ffmpeg libraries.

Perhaps this is something that could be incorporated into Resolve for Windows?

Here's what I use for ProRes on Windows... Perfect and free of any colour/gamma shifts!

[Jack Jones] "Telestream Episode 6 is one of them."

Episode Engine running on Windows Server 2008 can encode ProRes; the desktop versions of Episode running on Windows 7 cannot.

I'll second DNxHD and CineForm as good mastering codecs on Windows.
