There is no option for export prores 422 from after effects cs6 on new mac os 10.8.2 shows up and works on older mac 10.6.8
How can I get this option back?
I will guess that you used to have Final Cut Pro, but you no longer have it. Generally, only machines with Final Cut Pro installed are able to write to ProRes 422.
There are third-party codec packages that do write to the ProRes family of codecs. They have been discussed in this forum, and you could search for their names. I'm sorry to say that I don't remember them.
I have final cut pro x installed/ Thanks for your help
What I did to fix was go to library/quicktime/appleprorescodec.componet on my old mac copied and pased to same folder on new mac.
I'm still puzzled why they did not install when I installed final cut pro x? All works fine now
