We have new ProRes output presets available for Media Encoder CC. You can download the presets here
While the new presets do not add new functionality to Media Encoder, they do provide added convenience. By definition, these presets are for use on Mac OS. If you are on Mac OS X 10.8, or 10.9, the ProRes codecs come installed with your operating system. If you are using Mac OS X 10.7, you will need to install one of the Apple Pro apps (Final Cut Pro, Motion, Compressor, etc.) for the presets to function correctly.
Here’s what’s new with the Media Encoder CC ProRes presets:
Please note: the ProRes presets should only be installed on AME CC (7.x). They may not work correctly in AME CS6 or earlier versions.
If you have any questions, please let us know.
Much appreciated, but I was wondering when we might expect a framerate and resolution independent way of transcoding media?
Sometimes (as in most of the time) I don't really care about changing resolutions or retiming anything, I usually just have a pile of media that I would like to conform to a single codec, independent of framerate or resolution, like at this very moment.
Right now I need to transcode 100+ clips in various flavors of h.264, mp4, and animation codec in order to get this media into Resolve. I don't want to have to specify different framerates and resolutions, I just want them transcoded to ProRes.
The presets are nice, but the ability to do what I'm needing would greatly reduce the need for presets like these.

Will these presets work with Adobe Media Encoder CC 2014?
Just tested with AME 2014, seem to work fine. Just follow the same procedure for importing the presets.
I am unable to install the presets on my iMac running the latest OS. I go through all the installation steps and nothing happens. No presets to be found.
Is there any way to get these running on windows for premier pro cc 2014 ?
I am in need for this codec on Windows. Does Adobe have an answer for this?
There’s no native way to export ProRes on Windows as it is a Apple codec and hence supported on MAC. To the best of my knowledge, there is absolutely no Premiere support for third-party tools (such as Cinemartin) that claim ProRes exports from Premiere Pro.
However, Premiere Pro supports prores imports which are decoded by Native QuickTime Prores.
I see. Thank you for your quick response Vinay. The only answer then is a stand alone converter, like Cinmartin's Cinec?

That is the only Plugin that we have suggested till now, but as I said there is no confirmation of it on behalf of Adobe as we haven't tested it. So, you can try some search and find any other plugin that can do the job for you.
Ok, thank you for the information.
I find it very surprising that the preset package doesn't even include any 4K or 1080p60fps presets? When will that be released?
I second this, please add 4k!
Also the profile is ProRes 422. Not HQ.
Adobe needs to make it easier on their users, many people are making mistakes.
