    Adobe Pro Video Apps Now Support ProRes Export on Windows

    https://theblog.adobe.com/adobe-pro-video-apps-now-support-prores-export-on-windows/

     

    Your move Avid.  Prores option in AMA file export (maybe this is a contradiction) would be cool.  How about a decent integrated web compression workflow too? thx

    Re: Adobe Pro Video Apps Now Support ProRes Export on Windows

    Wanted to post the same thing!
    I try to avoid ProRes at all cost, but there are certain projects/clients/workflows that demand ProRes and it's a real pain that there still is no proper (writing) support inside Media Composer.
    Make it a paid option if you're too greedy to include it for free but please make it happen. Would make life so much easier. Keeping my fingers crossed...

    Absolutely! Then I can steer clear of that overpriced "pro" garbage Apple have been putting out recently and still satisfy all the idiots who think they need a ProRes instead of A DNx. This would be a very welcome addition to the Windows Avid experience. Preferably with an external program like AME to handle it all too.

    Re: Adobe Pro Video Apps Now Support ProRes Export on Windows

    I don't have a single issue with mxf... its the producers who are clueless about it and ALWAYS ask for prores.

    I think i am the only person they know who uses windows.

     

    Hopefully AME will just keep same resolution and fps and let you select codec.  I hate that you have to specify output settings.

    Thats why I like edit ready on mac (the only software I wish I had on windows.) Drag drop, keep same properties minus codec.

    There's a big "Match Source" button in the video settings that lets you do that.  Looks like they've made the audio configuration a little more user friendly too.

    Re: Adobe Pro Video Apps Now Support ProRes Export on Windows

    The Adobe apps do not install on Windows 7 or 8 any more, it is Windows 10 only.  Obviously they work on MACs too but they could always make ProRes on a MAC, of course.

    Being pedantic here, but the MXF container is not exclusive to DNX, so this is kind of weird way to make a codec argument. Prores, DNX, and many other codecs are supported in the MXF op1a container. If you are talking about OP-Atom MXF, it isn't really meant to be used outside of the NLE-managed environment.

    This is very interesting.
    Has Avid said anything about when they are dropping windows 7 support?
    7 is end of life in one year. Now would be a good time to start planning this for anyone with a bunch of editing machines. Adobe sure has given us a push now that updates stopped in October.

    Re: Adobe Pro Video Apps Now Support ProRes Export on Windows

    give me one good reason to use windows 7.

    other than not being technically savy and unable to adapt to new software.

    Thats the only reason I can think of.  That os is over 10 years old.

    Because it is installed already and does the job. Whereas the upgrade would require to reinstall the system and all my helper apps from the groud up.

    Yeah I know, I'll have to swith someday. After this current project is done, I will. Likely in May.

    Thats the only reason I can think of.  That os is over 10 years old.

    I think a lot of users have been unsure of windows 10 since there was never a real handoff from Avid.
    They started supporting it, but windows 7 was preferred for a long while. I guess all that was needed was some kind of - "Ok people - we officially recommend 10 over 7 now, and our main development centers on 10"

    The other part of the equation is that updating old machines from 7 to 10 usually is a bit scary. Since a lot of pro apps weren't supported on 10 until a couple of updates in, there are a lot of old HP z420 etc with support and drivers for windows 7. They often have some drivers for windows 10, but often from 2015/2016. Some BIOS updates and then no more.

    So:
    windows 7 - 9 years old - 9 years with good track record.
    windows 10 - 3 years old - 2 years with good track record

    windows 7 - easy to set up - works with all machines up until a year or two ago.
    windows 10 - harder to get control of updates and optimize for professsional use? Old machines might not work well. New machines work better on 10 and gives performance boost.
