As more and more people start getting their hands on Final Cut Studio 2 there have been a lot of questions raised about the new codec they’ve created – ProRes 422.   I, for one, wasn’t wild about having yet another format to deal with, but the reports that are starting to come in I’m beginning to change my tune.  With bit rates the same as DVCproHD and HDCAM combined, it offers something new for Mac users.   Having just gotten my hands on a FCS2 version this weekend, I’m looking forward to seeing what it has to offer.
