Since I use Vegas from time to time, I just detected the Magix Intermediate format with V16.

The selection says e.g. "Intermediate 422", the decription "P210" (which would be an uncompressed format), but mediainfo of the exported file shows "ProRes".

Would that be a way to PreRes on Windows/Linux for the hobbyists with Lightworks as well, Editshare Intermediates?

There's little point in being able to encode ProRes within Lightworks unless it's a licensed version that's accepted by broadcasters and other users using Apple Kit.

The current Cineform option should do the job for hobbyists, since it doesn't require an extra license for Pro users.

I don't know if Magix uses licensed Apple code or something else to encode ProRes, but I know that they don't ask for any license fee.

Since it's not one the authorised list and if Magix don't claim it as ProRes, it may have passed under Apple's radar, although I know on one forum someone contacted them about it.

support.apple.com/en-gb/HT200321

You pay for Magix products, so I assume all licenses are included in the cost.

There seems to have been difficulties due to it not fully matching the published standard from Apple.
