    i just installed FCP6 on my new macbook pro and the ProRes codec is missing. i can't setup a sequence with it or edit existing projects that use ProRes.

    does anyone know why it wouldn't have installed the codec or know where i can get it from if its just a case of putting it in a folder? i've re-installed FCP6 3 times now and it still doesn't show up.

    i tried a file created on another computer that is encoded with ProRes and i can view it perfectly.

    I took a couple of screen-grabs to show what FCP6 says when trying to create a sequence using ProRes as the codec, and to show that there is no codec in the list.

    the other projects i have tried to open and use were created on FCP 6.06 and i have updated my FCP to the same version.

    I did another clean install today and it's still missing. I can't believe i am the only person to ever have this problem. started to get a bit annoyed now, haha,

    any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I would contact Apple and troubleshoot with them. They'll help you out... worst case they can send you new discs, but I highly doubt you'll need to go that far.

    I don't have any other advice since, you are the only person I've ever heard that has had this problem.
