      I’ve gotten ProRes files from local post houses and never had any problems importing them. Having said that, I’ve never heard of the device you mentioned until I read your post. The fact that they don’t make some sample files available on their site has me a bit worried as I like to “try before I buy”.

       The ProRes off the Ninja is readable by PC’s running Premiere and Vegas.

      That depends entirely on what you want to do with the file. DVD, web, something else?

      I haven’t done any Blu-ray work yet so hopefully someone who has will jump in here and offer some suggestions.

       From Vegas don’t you have the option of Sony AVC or somesuch for exporting to bluray?  That should work nicely.

      Yes indeed, H.264 Blu-ray (MPEG-4 AVC) is a good codec for Blu-ray, and Vegas Pro 10 should be quite capable. Though this article uses Adobe Encore, the practices may still fit your system.

      The Ninja is exciting, we’ve got one in the office here and reviewed it recently:

      We use Blu-rays for archiving purposes, who knows, they could be the last physical blank media for us to hold onto, keep up the good work!

      For Vegas, I use the “AVCHD 1920×1080-60i” preset. This renders it to m2ts, which is the blu ray stream (you wont need to re-render the video when loading it into a BD compiling program like DVD-A), but you can also do JUST the video stream if you do the “Blu-ray 1920×1080-60i, 16 Mbps video stream” and it will render the video only .avc file. I prefer the .m2ts route as it saves a copy of the audio with the video stream for easy access backup, HOWEVER, when you compile a blu-ray, you SHOULD ALWAYS render out the audio separately as an ac3-pro file and replace that as the audio stream when building your disc. This way your audio will not have to be re-rendered when compiling, and you have full control over keeping it as pure as possible.

      If you want to keep a high quality master copy on your hard disc, render as a .mxf file (35 MB/s VBR, or 50MB/s CBR).
