Question: Help with converting ProRes Raw to straight ProRes

I recently did a 5-day shoot for a client and I captured everything in ProRes Raw. After the shoot I found out that I would not be editing the footage and that the editor being used does not edit with FCP. I am hoping there is an easy way to convert the ProRes Raw footage to straight ProRes. I really am hoping to avoid bringing in each clip to the timeline and then exporting from there. And, how ever I do end up exporting to ProRes, what flavor would be suggested (It was capture from a Sony Fs5 onto and Atomos Inferno - 12 bit) I am assuming ProRes 422HQ or would there be an advantage to exporting to ProRes 4444 (if that's even possible)?


Thanks in advance!

Answer:

My immediate response was "Compressor", but alas it appears that Compressor does not support ProRes Raw (yet?).

So AFAICT, it appears that the only solution is the one you were fearing.


I imagine ProRes 422 HQ would be fine.

You could use ProRes 4444, but that would make files that are even bigger than Raw, and I don't think there would be any quality benefits (but I can't say for sure).


Note: you do not need to create a project for each clip. Just select a clip, Clip->Open Clip, File->Share... and so on.

You don't to wait for sharing to finish in order to share a new one, so you can speed things a bit.

If you add a keyboard shortcut to "Open Clip", it can be all done from the keyboard.
