I have been trying to work out how to enable usage of ProRes codecs in CS6 with no luck. I previously worked on my past employers Macbook Pro where I was able to import ProRes footage into the timeline under correct/matched sequence settings as well as export to any ProRes format I desired. I have most recently been working with 16mm, so the rushes from telecine come back as ProRes 4444 files. The workflow was perfect.

The solutions I have seen are to download the codecs from Apple and import them into AME which I've now installed, but these are only 422 and I can only export. Having Final Cut or Compressor is also essential, I have both with the latest versions installed. Nothing's changed.

From memory, the previous Macbook Pro had FCP7 instead of X. Could this be the solution? I never had to download anything extra, everything just worked out.

I know this is probably a repeated thread, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello Paul,
In the CS6 era, only the 32 bit version of ProRes was available for use in Premiere Pro, which could only be installed if you had Final Cut Studio applications installed, like FCP 7, Motion 4, or Compressor 3.5.

I would expect that this is at the heart of your issue.

Thanks,
Kevin

Thanks Kevin, that sounds very promising. So if I managed to install an older version of FCP/Motion/Compressor will the codecs become available in Premiere immediately without any other steps?

Cheers,
Paul

Hi Paul,
You may need to create presets, but that's not too difficult.

Thanks,
Kevin
