Actually Harm, I just installed the latest Quicktime for Windows... and directly after I was able to import a ProRes file straight into Prem. Pro CS4.
This was necessary for a project as I am collating material for a showreel and only have access to some filmmakers' final exported ProRes data.
End result achieved- I am now able to edit the ProRes footage, and export in a more suitable format.
Thanks for reporting your success. If you don't mind, which actual version of QT Pro do you have? Looks like 7.6.2 is the current.
Also, do you have CS4.1? This could be important to PrPro users.
PS I just recommended against ProRez in another thread, and your answers may cause me to go and amend my reply.
Were you happy with the look of the final output from the imported ProRes files? Did you burn to DVD and/or Blueray? I'm working in Super-16 film right now and debating whether it's worth the extra cost to have the film scanned at HD quality into ProRes. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
thanks in advance,
Are you still happy with the ProRes codec in the Premiere Pro environment? It sounded like it began working properly for you after updating your quicktime. Any news, bugs, changes of heart since your last post? I'm debating whether to commit to that as my film output file type.
