>ProRes 422 Codec Finally Cross-platform (Sorta…)

>Before you get all excited about the Apple ProRes QuickTime Decoder 1.0 for Windows, let’s remember that you can only render to ProRes 422 if you’re on a Mac and have Final Cut Studio 2 installed. If you don’t you’ll be in the same boat as the Windows users and will need to install the Apple ProRes QuickTime Decoder 1.0 for Mac.

So, for true cross-platform goodness you’ll still be better off with the free (and in size and quality similar or better) Avid DNxHD codec that also supports an alpha channel.
