While investigating the ins-&-outs of getting the most out of my Canon 7D for filming video, it came to light that the Apple ProRES codecs [ProRes 422] are some of the best to work with (to my knowledge at this time 🙂 ) in the workflow process to follow for colour correcting and grading.
BUT – to have the Apple ProRES codecs installed on your Mac, you need to install Final Cut Pro (very expensive), which to say the least I have not done.
Through the power of the internet I found a very informative guide on how to install the ProRES codecs WITHOUT the need to spend any money 🙂
The steps in Martin’s guide are easy to follow and I can report back that the codecs are now available to me in my video “workflow”.
Go Internet !
