I think you'll need a mac and fcp for that.

Vegas can READ ProRes but cannot WRITE ProRes. You may be able to output in some other format and then use QuickTime Pro to convert it.

You could get to ProRes 422 if you have an HDSDI card and KiPro...you could treat it like a deck.

ProRes 4444 is only available for encode with FCP though...as mentioned.

So if I am working with a FCP editor, they can give me Preres files and I can edit them in Vegas and output to AVI/WMV/whatever?

Yes you can. Not sure how Vegas treats an EDL though...

Some EDL info:

Vegas Pro EDLs are not the same as those used in traditional linear editing suites and are not intended as a project interchange for other editing applications.

Because of the significant differences between editing applications, projects that are converted from EDLs (or exported to EDLs) are necessarily simplified. Events are inserted into the timeline on a single track, and transition effects from the other application are replaced with crossfades. Projects that are imported from another application's EDL are initially limited to four audio tracks. If you add more tracks, save the project as a .veg file.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Create an EDL:

From the File menu, choose Save As. The Save As dialog is displayed.

Select the drive and folder where you want to store the project.

Type a name in the File Name box.

From the Save as type drop-down list, choose EDL Text File (*.txt).

Enter a name for the file and browse for a destination.

EDL files do not contain information about the location of source media. Save the .txt file in the same folder as the source media.

Click OK.

---------------------------------------------------

Open an EDL:

From the File menu, choose Open.

Choose the folder where the project you want to open is stored:

Choose a drive and folder from the Look in drop-down list.

—or—

Choose a folder from the Recent drop-down list to quickly select a folder from which you have previously opened files.

Select a file in the browse window or type a name in the File name box. Detailed information about the selected file appears at the bottom of the dialog box.

Click Open. If you have not saved the current project, you will be prompted to save your changes.

Events are placed in the Vegas Pro timeline. All transitions are replaced with crossfades. You can change the crossfades to other transition types if desired.
