      I’ve been hearing the words ProRes alot lately but I’m not quite sure what it is.

      I edit in 720X480 Standard Def (interlaced). Final Cut Studios 1.5Would it be beneficial to me?

      Is is some sort of Apple Codec?

      thanks

      Is it available for Final Cut Studios 1.5?

      No. You need FCP6 or later. (FCS2 or FCS3)

      To build more on what Coreece has said, yes, it is typically used for HD, but you can still use it for SD. The benefits of ProRes include:

      10-bit color space. So it holds up better for graphics, compositing, and color grading.

      full faster resolution when used for HD. Full raster means that it’s actually 1920X1080 or 1280X720 instead of 1440X1080 or 960X720 and then stretched.

      Much lower bit-rates than Uncompressed 10-bit video, but equal image quality. Uncompressed 10-bit video requires the use of a RAID while ProRes only really needs FW800.
