Convert uncompressed HD MKV to ProRes for editing for playback
"I am looking to go from MKV (uncompressed HD) to ProRes. I don't want to lose any quality in the trip. Right now my workflow involves taking the MKV and compressing to a H.264 M4V, and then "up converting" the file to ProRes. I know that I am losing quality on the video when I go down to M4V and I'd like to eliminate that. Does any product go directly from MKV to ProRes and retain the full resolution of the source video? I'm also getting a lot of stutter on playback after encoding to ProRes. My playback machine is a MacBook Pro with Retina display with 16 gigs of ram and flash memory. Should handle this no problem, right?”
