When you order an editable file from Alive Studios, we will send you a Quicktime ProRes file.
We choose this file type because it is excellent quality, contains a huge amount of data for editing, and has relatively reasonable file sizes.
If you choose editing software that doesn’t directly import .mov files, then you will need to convert the file. A common file type supported by many editing programs is MPEG 4.
In this video, Steven shows you how easy it is to convert your ProRes file to MPEG 4 using a free program called Handbrake.
