Our latest update adds support for four ProRes flavors: ProRes 422 HQ, ProRes 422, ProRes 422 LT, and ProRes 422 Proxy. For dedicated filmmakers and editors, these codecs offer high-quality video files without inter-frame compression*, allowing for a better editing experience and final cut. They also provide higher spatial color resolution than the usual HEVC formats on iOS**. See this Apple support link for more details about choosing the four ProRes options.
- *Rather than compressing data across frames, each frame in a ProRes video is its standalone image.
- ** Luminance (”brightness”) and chrominance (”color”) data are stored separately in many video formats. ProRes 422 files store twice as much color information per pixel block than comparable HEVC files, which generally use 420 subsampling on iOS.
On the iPhone 15 Pro Models, our Pro Camera app now supports shooting in Apple log. This color profile allows a more extensive dynamic range to be packed into 10-bit data, giving you access to more stops without clipping. In addition to providing more latitude later in the color grading process, the resulting video can be rendered to HDR displays if desired. Apple Log is currently only supported with ProRes codecs.
