ProRes on Premiere- on a mac?!

Please don't get angry because of my question but-
I edit with Premiere Pro on a mac. And I was wondering if I need any add-ons to edit ProRes footage.

How about a smiley face to start :D.

If you have FCP on your computer than you have the ability to play back and encode Prores.

If you dont own FCP, you can download only the decoder for the Mac...

And note that you can't actually encode to ProRes without FCP. So you'll need a separate station with FCP to do that for you.....

Well the cheapest way at the moment to get Prores component is to buy Motion 5 (49$). Also if you've Final Cut Studio (or FCPX/Motion5/Compressor4) already on some workstation it should work that you simply copy Prores component from Macintosh HD/Library/Quicktime to same folder in other computer. Maybe it's illegal. No idea. I think Apple doesn't care. As long as people have to buy Macs to encode Prores :)

Hello all,

The responses here are informative about Premiere not being able to encode to Pro Res. But the original question asked whether it is possible to import pre-existing Pro Res files (on a Mac) into Premiere and then edit them.

I'm a PPro newbie but believe the answer to that is "yes." Am I right?

As long as you have some version of FCP running on your machine (including FCP X), Premiere WILL be able to read and edit ProRes files. You'll also be able to encode Quicktime ProRes files directly out of Premiere or Media Encoder.

I just set up a new MacBook Pro (Lion), first installing FCP X/Motion/Compressor, then installing Adobe Production Premium CS5.5. I didn't need to copy any files or codecs to new locations - ProRes was just waiting for me, ready to rock, inside of Premiere.

Hope that helps...

Yes...and to be clear...to others, besides the original poster...

You need to have an Apple Pro video app to ENCODE to Pro Res. The decode ability is built into recent versions of Quicktime.

You can install Motion 5 or Compressor 4 ($50 each) to get the Pro Res encoder. You don't need FCPX or FC Studio.

I have PPro installed on a MacPro that already had FCP7. I can read, edit and render to Prores. A Blackmagic Decklink is installed with the latest drivers. I still have not found a way to capture HD-SDI directly to Prores.
Is this an Adobe or a Blackmagic problem?

Thanks
