Does anyone know why apple pro res 4444 is working anymore in Adobe Premiere?
When I import the file it alwasy has an error, so am not even able to open it.
May depend on whether that has an alpha channel or not. And is this mxf or mov form?
Thanks Neail, it does have an alpha channel. I am exporting from Motion to Premiere in .mov
I guess these two softwares don't get along anymore.
Something like this can depend on which format and other decisions are made during encoding. And be a bugger to puzzle out, at times. Which gets very annoying quickly.
I know some users have found that ProRes in mxf does a lot better for alpha and for moving between video post apps.
Actually the asnwer is: Adobe doesn't take anymore Apple Pro Res 4444. Will have to start all over again in After Effects and try animation.
@Fergus Hammond would be the person that would know about that.
Thnaks Neil. Adobe does take Pro Ress 4444 but not from Motion (I think)
Thanks for the details. Always helps.
Hmmm... nothing has changed about file format support for Apple ProRes.It's been awhile since I've exported ProRes 4444 from Motion, but I'll give it try and report back.Back before Apple deprecated QuickTime, we could simply change the .motn extension to .mov and the file imported into After Effects or Premiere Pro. It's really unforunate that we lost that functionality.
@defaultxprws99n0njq Hello:I just exported a ProRes 4444 movie from Motion and it imports into Premiere Pro as expected.
I'm running the following software:
However, I would expect the rendered movie to import into any currently available version of Premiere Pro (macOS or Windows).
The Motion project (.motn) and rendered ProRes 4444 file (.mov) may be downloaded from here for testing on your end:
I have included a screen shots below for reference (including the Export Movie dialog box from Motion) below.

I just imported the mov that Warren links, and it works fine on my PC.
Thanks Warren! I also tested your file and it does work, but for some reason mine doesn't. I did the same operation and same format in AE and it now works, but not in with particualr motion file.
