Want to use PPRo to transcode into ProRes...

Nov 21, 2012 1:15 PM

Hi All


I received a folder full of .MTS video files for a project. I have PPro 5.0 on my teaching laptop, but use FCPX as my main editing platform on a MacPro. Without a file structure FCPX won't import the files, while PPro does. I have a seq with a test MTS file placed, go to export and find ProRes under Quicktime, but it only allows me to export as 720 x 480 not the original 1080p size. I have searched around about this without luck... perhaps a kind soul here has a method?


Thank you,




(OSX 10.8.2)

    Adobe Media Encoder may be the better tool for batch conversions.  Give that a go.

    If the option were there I would first go back to the original recorded media, with all the file structure and ingest directly into FCPX. Otherwise I have found that if I export to Media Encoder even after I select the ProRes option I have to manually change the resolution. ME seems to default to SD rez for me anyway.


    In my previous system (5.5, but now in 6) I had created presets in ME for output to ProRes. I've not gotten around to creating them yet on our new/clean MacPro. There's a blog article on Adobe's site. You'd have to google it. "ProRes workflow in Premiere". I think that's how I found it. Sorry, I've lost that link since I updated the computer.


    If this happens very often you could always purchase Prelude and use it to convert to ProRes.
