Best Codec? (for import)

I’ve got a client that wants to know what codec would be best for me to use in compositing cg over his video. He wants to send it in the ProRes422 codec. I’m wandering if blender imports this well. If not what would be the best codec for this type of project. It’s very important that it is a very lossless format that I use, so I WOULD like to use ProRes422 if possible. I’m running Ubuntu Hardy and also have an XP machine, so my options are open. Please tell me if you have any ideas.

quicktime animation at 100% quality


uncompressed AVI

Make sure you turn keyframes off if you’re exporting as a QT.

neither of which have many restrictions on image dimesions.

  1. Wrong forum.
  2. Quicktime compression at 100% quality is still lossy.
  3. Good luck getting ProRes422 for Linux. Come to think of it, good luck getting ProRes422 at all.
  4. Uncompressed AVI is a pretty reliable fallback.
  5. Can your client deliver a string of PNG images?
