Following our article Apple Announce End Of Native Support For Avid DNx Codecs - Avid Respond. Why This Matters For Pro Tools Users Adobe have announced that the pro video apps now support ProRes export on the Windows platform releasing updates to the Adobe Creative Cloud video apps, including Premiere Pro CC, After Effects CC and Adobe Media Encoder CC.
Apple ProRes is a codec technology developed by Apple for high-quality, high-performance editing. It is a popular codec in professional post-production used for acquisition, production, delivery, and archive.
Adobe has been working behind the scenes with Apple to provide ProRes export to post-production professionals using Premiere Pro and After Effects. Support for ProRes on both macOS and Windows helps video production easier and simplifies final output, including server-based remote rendering with Adobe Media Encoder.
Once you download and install the latest Adobe updates, ProRes 4444 and ProRes 422 export will be available within Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Media Encoder on macOS and Windows 10.

This helps those working in both audio and video post production to maintain a streamlined workflow and for the first time for Windows users provide proper ProRes support in the Adobe Pro video applications.
Will this move make you more likely to use Apple’s ProRes format rather than Avid’s DNx format?
