I would like to second (or third) the opinion on this. This is a rare issue, thus folks may come upon this every couple of years. It just saved my life - or at least several $100 dollars I woulda lost along with a client.and the post is over two years old now. Downside to the solution, is it seems this codec will not install without the Quicktime bloat/spyware. Anyone know of an alternative codec for AppleProResDecoder.qtx that doesn't require the evil of Quicktime? Seems Quicktime Alt does not yet support this format. I can't try it right now but it seams that you can download a package of codecs for Pro Apps directly on apple's website.

Here's the link: Can somebody try it and say if it's working? Edouard JOLY. My 2 cents, since Ken Evans post of Oct 7, 2011 just saved me (a) a client, (b) a bundle, (c) a load of grief. Absolutely nothing wrong with keeping old posts alive with new developments and info which address lingering issues. And many thanks to anyone (listening, Ken?) who takes the time. When in the throes of confusion and searching madly for answers, we don't care if it comes from an old post or new.
Ken's easy solution worked like a charm, and I'm now rendering Apple ProRes 4444 with alpha channels out of After Effects, just as a particular client has requested - way to go! (and excellent to not have to purchase FCP X just to get some codecs) In answer to a couple posts by folks who had problems getting it to work in FCP, I believe it's because the current QT package needs FCP 7 or above - 6 and below won't read some of them (I've just gotten this impression from some earlier reading while doing a search). Works great out of Premier though (nudge, nudge - since Apple is clearly giving up on their professional software offerings). Ken, Thanks for your post and this work around.I am on FCP 6.05 and would love access to the prores 422LT. I did the steps detailed in this post, and now see prores 422LT as an option in mpeg streamclip, but not in FCP. In FCP, I opened the log and transcode window and under the preference pane looked for the 422LT in the canon eos drop down menu but did not see the option (only see previous options: 422HQ/422, and no LT).
Is there another way I should be navigating, or looking? Did I miss a step to activate this, to be able transcode to 422LT in FCP? i did clear my user settings and restart the computer, just in case My workflow involves footage shot on a Canon 5dii, hence looking at the EOS plug in area.
Thank you in advance for your insights!
