Best Intermediate Export Format OSX

I'm editing scenes independently and then reassembling them in a final cut.

My question - what's the best format for the initial export - apple prores 4444, prores 422, prores 422 (hq), or straight h264 be the best?

Thanks in advance


  • If you're happy with the quality, stick with ProRes 422. If you aren't then step up to 422 hq. ProRes 4444 should be used when you want alpha channel transparency. 

  • Thanks for responding. Prores 422 it is...
