As I found out, thanks to Thomas Worth, one doesn’t need nor Motion or Compressor from FCP to work in Premier Pro 5 with Pro Res 4444 encoded.mov files. You can download the Apple codecs here: You’ll have to unpack the PKG file and install the codecs manually, because Apple doesn’t want you to install them unless you have Final Cut Pro already installed. Use a utility like unpkg to extract the files, then copy them into /Library/QuickTime: You can download unpkg for free here: After one done all that, PrPro5 and Adobe Media Encoder automatically add these codecs to Quick Time export codecs and work with Pro Res 4444.mov containers natively, and I would say even smoother, than with.MOVs.
To me, in such setup CS5 Production becomes the best option for Mac. Posted by: Sergey.
