422 Mp4

Developed and introduced by Apple Inc. in the year 2007 with the public release of Final Cut Studio 2, ProRes is a codec that, unlike and that use MP4 as file extension, loosely compresses the footages, thus preparing them for post-production processes.

MP4 files are GOP (Group of Pictures) and are smaller in size as they are compressed using or codecs. Because of this, the GPU has to make additional efforts to de-compress and compute the data they store before displaying a video on your screen during the playback. The condition stands true even during the editing process. Since the post-production tools like Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, etc. engage the GPU to de-compress an MP4 file, you cannot take full advantage of the hardware.

Assuming that you have now clearly understood why professionals prefer ProRes over MP4, the remaining two parts that follow from this point onward discuss the most recommended tools and methods to convert MP4 to ProRes.

A widely appreciated tool by both Windows and Mac users across the globe is Wondershare UniConverter (originally Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate). UniConverter is a universal converter that supports more than 1,000 extensions and can recognize and convert almost all significant formats to their relevant ones. The program is also lightweight and can perform all the conversion tasks around 30x faster than other post-production applications.

Launch Wondershare UniConverter on your Mac computer running the latest version of macOS (macOS Catalina at the time of this writing), check from the top of the interface and ensure that you are on the Converter tile, click Add Files from the center of the window, select the MP4 video you want to transcode, and click Load.

Click Output Format from the bottom section, go to the Editing tab from the top, and select ProRes from the list of formats in the left. As for the resolution, choose your preferred one from the right (Same as the source is selected here for illustration).

One of the most appreciated post-production tools by Apple, Final Cut Pro X, can easily convert MP4 to ProRes without using any other third-party program. Since Apple Inc. develops both ProRes and FCPX, they are fully compatible with each other, without giving much overhead to the GPU.

Adobe Premiere Pro is yet another post-production tool used by most professionals who work as full-time editors to produce industry-standard outputs distributed for commercial gains. After Adobe collaborates with Apple, Premiere Pro can recognize and transcode MP4 to ProRes from its Export Settings box.

iMovie is also a product of Apple Inc. and is available for both iOS and macOS devices. The application can be downloaded from the App Store and is free to use. With FCPX and Adobe Premiere Pro, iMovie has a box called Movie Settings that lets you easily transcode MP4 to ProRes.

Developed by VideoSolo, Free Video Converter can be installed on Windows and Mac computers, and both the variants are capable of converting MP4 to ProRes. Since the program's interface is simple, even a novice user can perform the transcoding tasks without any additional help or being highly technical.

Although you can use MP4 files in the post-production applications to edit them for commercial distribution, unlike ProRes, MP4 may lag during the process, especially if your PC specifications are not competent. That is where a third-party tool like Wondershare UniConverter comes into the picture that, because of being lightweight, can transcode MP4 to ProRes around 30x faster than other conversion applications.

Let's say you have some MP4 (H.264, MPEG-4) footage that you would like to edit in Final Cut Pro X on Mac machine, if that's the case, then converting MP4s to ProRes .mov files before your import them into FCPX is probably the way to go. Less compressed than MP4 which's used mainly for web delivery, ProRes 422 .mov video format is designed by Apple to work specifically with the Final Cut Pro X software for editing purpose.

There are a lot of tools that will get the MP4 to ProRes conversion work. Among them, Video Converter for Mac introduced in this article is a near-perfect piece of software which can cover nearly any situation you could find yourself in.

The software is able to sort things out. It handles pretty much any video & audio files you throw at it and then convert into something more accessible.

The level of customization it offers is also quite extensive.

BTW, you can click the small downward arrow icon beside "Add File", and select "Add Folder" from the drop down menu. Then in the dialog that opens, select a folder to import an entire folder of MP4 files.

Moving to the "Profile" drop-down menu, this video converter provides a number of export options - from outputting the built-in video & audio formats, to your own customisable file, to presets for using on iPad, iPhone, Android phones, tablets, game consoles, applications, Facebook, YouTube and more..

For purpose of this article, you click the dropdown menu "Profile" and head to "Final Cut Pro" Category.

Apple ProRes codecs provide an unparalleled combination of multistream, real-time editing performance, impressive image quality, and reduced storage rates. Apple ProRes codecs take full advantage of multicore processing and feature fast, reduced-resolution decoding modes.

All Apple ProRes codecs support all frame sizes (including SD, HD, 2K, 4K, and 5K) at full resolution. The data rates vary based on codec type, image content, frame size, and frame rate. Apple ProRes includes the following formats.

Apple ProRes 422 HQ is a higher-data-rate version of Apple ProRes 422 that preserves visual quality at the same high level as Apple ProRes 4444 but for 4:2:2 image sources. With widespread adoption across the video post-production industry, Apple ProRes 422 HQ offers visually lossless preservation of the highest-quality professional HD video that a single-link HD-SDI signal can carry. This codec supports full-width, 4:2:2 video sources at 10-bit pixel depths, while remaining visually lossless through many generations of decoding and reencoding. The target data rate is approximately 220 Mbps at 1920x1080 and 29.97 fps.

Apple ProRes 422 is a high-quality compressed codec offering nearly all the benefits of Apple ProRes 422 HQ, but at 66 percent of the data rate for even better multistream, real-time editing performance. The target data rate is approximately 147 Mbps at 1920x1080 and 29.97 fps.

Apple ProRes 422 LT is a more highly compressed codec than Apple ProRes 422, with roughly 70 percent of the data rate and 30 percent smaller file sizes. This codec is perfect for environments where storage capacity and data rate are at a premium. The target data rate is approximately 102 Mbps at 1920x1080 and 29.97 fps.

Apple ProRes 422 Proxy is an even more highly compressed codec than Apple ProRes 422 LT, intended for use in offline workflows that require low data rates but full-resolution video. The target data rate is approximately 45 Mbps at 1920x1080 and 29.97 fps.

* Apple ProRes 4444 and Apple ProRes 4444 XQ are ideal for the exchange of motion graphics media because they are virtually lossless. They are also the only Apple ProRes codecs that support alpha channels.

As you see in above specs, I am trying to achieve it. I have tried exporting from AE (its where I am animating and compositing) but always end up with .mxf files. Also have tried doing same in Media Encoder still no success.Does anyone knows how to achieve .mp4 wrapper for give codec or is there any other workflow that might help. Thank you!

Nowadays, shooting footage directly in ProRes codec has been a popular feature on professional cameras. Plus, users can also export a project as ProRes in NLEs like Final Cut Pro X. If you are looking for a solution to convert Apple ProRes video into H.264 format, you may try out HD Video Converter. It runs on Windows and Mac, doing a good job in re-encoding ProRes media to H.264 compressed MP4, MOV, MKV, AVI, TS, and FLV files with up to 4K resolution.

A video codec is the method used to compress and decompress the video. Raw video and audio take a lot of storage space; therefore, video codec compresses the data making it easier to store it. The most common types of codec used these days are H.264 and MPEG. 041b061a72
