Apple ProRes not showing up in export menu, even though it's installed


I’m running Harmony Premium 14 on Mac OSX 10.11.6 in labs and classrooms. I forgot to install Final Cut Pro and therefore the Apple ProRes codecs, and installed Harmony first. I did the same thing last year, but installing FCP after the fact didn’t matter, my users were able to export with Apple ProRes. It should show up when you go to:

File → Export —> Movie → Movie Options —> Video —> Video Options ----> Compression Type

Is Quicktime able to access the Apple Pro Res codec?
Did you try rebooting the system?

Which Harmony are you running (Essential, Advanced, Premium) and
how are you exporting to movie format?


So, now that you mention it, no, Quicktime couldn’t access the Apple Pro Res codec either!

I found this page:

… and I was able to install the ProRes codecs. I think it’s because I didn’t have anything in this folder: Macintosh HD/Library/Video/Professional Video Workflow Plug-Ins

My Final Cut Pro installer and the other codecs I installed were in /Library/Quicktime/ but that wasn’t good enough.
