    Apple ProRes codecs missing

    Hi, 

    I am editing an HD project and I just realized that I don't have Apple ProRes codec. 

    I am editing in the latest Avid (2018.4) on a Mac with OS Sierra (10.12.6)

     

    I have attached the list of available codecs I have. At work that list is double and we don't have any special package installed. 

    I tried uninstalling and re-intalling Avid but same thing happened.

    I even went to the Apple store to ask if they knew how could I get those codects. They barely knew what Apple Pro Res wasSurprise

    Any ideas?

    Hello other Martin!

    You need an Apple Pro app installed on your machine to acess Pro Video Formats.

    I'd recomend purchasing Compressor as it is a fast encoder and fairly cheap; otherwise you can follow these instructions as a workaround to install the Pro Formats without purchasing/installing a Pro App.

    Re: Apple ProRes codecs missing

    Your link no longer exists, but maybe you can help.  I am missing Apple Pro Res 422 codec when doing a mixdown.  I have installed the bundle and it never shows up.  Any idea where to get the 422 codec?

    Are you on a Mac? Which version of MC? Project type? Which codecs ARE showing up?

    Re: Apple ProRes codecs missing

    Hi GreekGuy, which bundle did you install? All you need is to install Compressor. That does the trick. In fact I bought Compressor only (it was something around 50 dollars. All considering was a good deal. 

    Today, in an Avid Webinar they mentioned that 2020.4 (will release on Monday Apr 27) it is included for PC. I want to believe that for Mac too.

    If you can download that version on Monday I would wait and see if it comes with the codecs. Otherwise make sure you install Compressor.

    I hope it helps.
