Apple releases ProRes codecs for non-FCP machines
A couple of days ago, Apple released Apple ProRes QuickTime Decoder 1.0 for Mac
and Apple ProRes QuickTime Decoder 1.0 for Windows
. This allows Windows users and Mac users without Final Cut Pro 6 installed on their machines to view ProRes-encoded files. This is great because in my experience, there are very few options when it comes to sending high-quality files to Windows machines and it should aid adoption of the ProRes format.
It should be noted, however, that you still need Final Cut Pro 6 in order to write ProRes files.
P.S. Sorry for the lack of updates but I haven't had internet access in about a month, which sucks big time.
