Join Jeff I. Greenberg for an in-depth discussion in this video Transcoding to ProRes, part of Compressor 4 Essential Training.
In this case, I am going to use Compressor to take this file when transcoded from…its starting format, H.264, to ProRes, because we need this to work faster in our…Apple workflow with Final Cut Pro X, or even if you're using 7.…I've got the batch template here.…I am going to hit Cancel. Drag Settings and Destination. Here we go.…I am going to click on our nice happy Finder.…There is our Transcode Start.…I am going to pull it over into Compressor and drop it into place.…There are a bunch of different presets here, but what I need is ProRes.…
Now, Apple has that towards the bottom, right here where it says ProRes, and…they've got a variety of the different flavors of ProRes.…These go from Proxy, being the lowest quality; to 422 being a nice medium quality--…it's probably perfect for all this DSLR footage--…HQ, if you were coming from something larger, say HDCAM SR or say RED; and 444 to…keep everything perfect, you should know in the way I describe those Proxy…422, 422 (HQ), and 444.…
They go in order of size. I just wish Proxy was at the top of this list rather than the middle.…
