    AE writing out using ffmpeg, possible?

    paulinventome Level 1

      I'm wondering whether there are any clever methods to writing our ProRes 4444 files from after effects on the windows platform.

       

      There are several apps that wrap a UI around ffmpeg and its various prores compatible codecs

       

      I've seen a method using a frame server to push data to a waiting encoder but believe there's an 8bpc limit to that approach (it also seems a little unreliable)

       

      So is there a plug in for ffmpeg, or an approach that may allow me to directly write out prores movies files from AE without writing out and then encoding as a separate step?

       

      many thanks in advance
