Odd ProRes sequence set-up behavior in Premiere Pro CC

Jun 26, 2013 5:19 PM

When I create a new sequence by dragging a ProRes HQ file onto New Item icon, it creates a DNxHD sequence.  My ProRes HQ footage is captured by the Blackmagic Shuttle2 recorder, and MediaInfo verifies it is ProRes.  Yet the sequence settings in Premiere Pro CC show:

Editing Mode:  DNX 145 1080i

Video Previews box:

Preview File Format: DNX 145 1080i 59.94

Codec:  DNxHD


I am on a Mac with Quicktime 7 installed.  There is no problem ingesting and importing the ProRes HQ camera video files into Premiere Pro.  I am just not seeing a ProRes sequence being created.  Is there something else I should test for?

    While creating a preset allows you to create a new sequence that is ProRes, when you try and conform a sequence to a codec (or drag a media file on the NEW ITEM icon to auto create an appropriate sequence), the sequence does not become ProRes.


    I'm on a 10.8.3 Mac, with FCP 7 & FCP X instaleld, so I ahve the ProRes QT Component.  Maybe a limitation of the Trial version or am I missing something?

    No, sadly.


    I went into great deal about it here: , and here : ; it seems to be a 'well known' bug?


    I can work around the sequence not matching the clip properties, but I want the export settings to match the clip properties (which is why I wanted the sequence settings to match the clip properties; because then I can do an export using sequence settings).  I can't do that now unless I do it manually....anyway, see my first link above for the details.

    Quite glad to have found this discussion and this solution. On my machine running PP 7.1, OSX 10.8.5, I get this result if I conform a sequence to a ProresLT 720p24 source clip (I'm editing with proxy files because my iMac is ancient):


    Sequence settings: Editing Mode AVC-Intra 100 720p 60hz.


    I was assuming that PPro couldn't edit this 'natively" until I got frustrated with it and tried to change it.


    Making a new preset and simply creating a new sequence from the preset works fine. But it's impossible to create a sequence based on a Prores clip's settings that actually matches those settings.

    So is this a known bug to Adobe? Happy to submit a bug report. It seems odd, though, that this persists.
