1. If you are using Final Cut Pro 5 or lower version, ProRes is not the best format for you. However, you can choose QuickTime Movie Format > Apple InterMediate Codec(AIC) as output format for editing on Mac.
2. If you are using FCP X, please make sure that you have installed the Apple ProRes Codec manually since the FCP X asks users to install it by themselves.
3. If you would like to edit Canon EOS 7D, 5D Mark II, 5D Mark III, 1D Mark IV, 60D videos in iMovie 8/9, FCE 4, go to the QuickTime Movie Format group in step 2 to choose AIC codec. You can also set 1080p output video size.
