Helping close a long-troublesome gap in Windows workflow, Adobe said three of its Creative Cloud apps now support exporting to Apple ProRes on Windows PCs.

The updates, released today, enable ProRes 4444 and ProRes 422 export from Premiere Pro CC, After Effects CC and Adobe Media Encoder (AME) CC, the company said.

Native ProRes support will be a welcome shortcut for users who have been using third-party tools such as ffmpeg to transcode to ProRes from other formats, or who have taken their entire project to a Mac to get output for clients who require ProRes deliverables.

The new version of Premiere Pro and AME also support import of HDR ProRes footage with Rec. 2020 and PQ/HLG color information, Adobe said.
