I am editing a project on Final Cut Pro X and was curious what format my video files should be for editing. I know ProRes 422 is a codec that pros use to edit and it has a much bigger file size, but I don't get the difference and which format I should be using to edit my project. Can someone please explain to me which format I should be editing on for my project! Thanks!

MacBook Pro (13-inch Mid 2009), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
