    ProRes or no ProRes?

    Jofurst

      Hi,

       

      I´ve just bought Adobe Premiere CS6. I preveously used Final Cut Pro, and have always been converting my footage from a Canon 60D DSLR to Apple ProRes 422 (HQ). Do I have to do the same with Premiere? I´m using Mac.

       

      Thank you

          No, you don't - with a caveat.  H.264 is processor intensive, so depending on your machine, you may still need to do a transcode.  Just give it a try and see how it goes. Most likely, you will be able to work on the native footage.  For best results, create a sequence that matches the footage settings. (drag and drop one of the clips on the "New Sequence" icon in your bin)  Good luck.
