Use Question: Needed to transcode Apple ProRes files to Sony Vegas
“Hi, there all, I am an independent videomaker, making work for TV, music videos, Short Films, Promos, Intros, Corporate, etc… I was desperate these days, because I needed to work in a huge project with Apple ProRes (mov) files on Sony Vegas. Since Apple ProRes is not a windows-friendly format, and the project was big, Sony Vegas crashed a lot. I needed a converter to successfully convert the ProRes mov. into .h264 codec, so I could edit fluently with no crashes. The videos I wanted to convert were filmed with a Canon mark III using the ninja external recorder. They are Apple ProRes mov files. I’ve tried several converters, but they didn’t result files with good quality that I wanted. I’m in a rush. Can anybody kindly recommend a useful Apple ProRes Converter for Sony Vegas? Thanks a lot for your help.”
