Hello everyone! I'm trying to make a proxy with the 1280 x 720 Apple ProRes, but to my surprise, it is not available to me.

Good to note that I do not have Final Cut Pro installed and I don't have motion.

I recently fresh installed everything on my mac trying to get 2 partitions going for another operating system (Mavericks) for use with a legacy product from Serato that is not supported on anything above that OS. in the past I downloaded a trial version of Final Cut which I guess helped me (without knowing) to obtain the codecs. But since my fresh install, I've avoided installing FCPX.

Now that I've discovered that in order to get the codecs I need, this pro software needs to be installed. I searched for another alternative and found out you can download the pro video formats and unpack the PKG. But after unpacking and transferring the codecs nothing really changed. I downloaded the Pro Video Formats 2.0.4 (due to the fact that the newer ones require Metal... more on my mac in a minute...)

currently, I don't know what else to do and I'm thinking of just giving up and downloading the free trial of FCPX.

The reason I'm trying to get this method to work is because of this tutorial.

Slow Computer? EDIT SUPER FAST! Premiere Pro Proxies Workflow

And these are the resources I was using to get the codecs to work without Final Cut Pro

INSTALL THE APPLE PRORES CODEC WITHOUT FINAL CUT OR PROAPPS

and here are my specs (please don't laugh)

Early 2011 13" Macbook Pro 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7
High Sierra 10.13.6
Adobe Premiere Pro 14.7.0 (build 23)

1280x720 is not missing. If you just do one clip with the available presets you will see.

For some reason they thought it would be visually cleaner/easier if they listed a general size rather than the pixel count.

 

ProRes Low proxies are 1024x580, Medium is 1280x720. They are produced really quick, and you can select one clip, right-click/proxy/create proxie, when MediaEncoder finishes in a few seconds, click on the blue file name in that app, it opens the Finder/Explorer window, and you can check file properties.

 

Personally, I'd prefer simply that they are named for format/codec at framesize X. Ah well.

and I prefer to create my own proxy settings usually matching my source pixel dimensions etc. with prores proxy...  Always need to bang my head against the wall a few times to make sure I've got it right...  but always test your workflow.  generate a proxy for one clip and make sure it plays properly and that you're actually accessing the proxy before you spend hours generating all your proxies...  this is the voice of experience speaking.   Some sony cameras generate files with 8 audio tracks and it's been impossible to generate proxies that work (at least for me) ...  there's a workaround if you have this problem...
