ProRes is the codec of choice among many video professionals. Luckily, Padded ProRes Files allow insert-edit, which eliminates the hassle and expense of having to re-export entire files for small changes.

There are two workflows that let you create a ProRes Pad file and both are absolutely free!

  • Plugins for various NLEs, include Cinedeck created plugins for Avid MC and Premiere.
  • A free rewrap utility that lets your batch process your Standard ProRes to Padded ProRes and vice versa.
