Currently Being ModeratedMay 3, 2009 7:39 PM (in response to zenbum1)If he is on a PC he can read the pro res files but not create prores files
same true if he's on a mac and does not have FCP on that machine.
apple makes available the decoder free of charge on their website for mac or PC
If they have to come back to you for you to edit further there will be an issue.
the cleanest way for him to output to you if they need to come back is animation codec.
they will need to be rendered in FCP. The other is sequential files tiff or targa if he's on a PC
drop them into a sequence that is set up for pro res and render that out which will get you back inpro res fairly cleanlymacpro 8 core 8 gig ram, Facilis Terrablock, Mac OS X (10.5.6), Kona3, HD and SD decks FCP 6.0.5 QT 7.5.5

So he will be able to read the ProRes file within Adobe Premier Elements, make some changes, and then render out to some other codec/format?
I won't need to bring it back into FCP once he has the footage.Intel iMac 24" 2.93 GHz, 4 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.5.6), QT 7.6
