How to Convert Black Magic Intensity Pro ProRes 422 files to MPEG for Premiere Pro

Step 1. Run the Mac ProRes Converter as the perfect Pro ProRes to MPEG Converter, and add your Black Magic Intensity Pro ProRes footage into this program.

Step 2. Click on "Format" bar and select output format from drop-down list. Premiere Pro prefers AVI or MPEG format for editing. Here I suggest you follow "Adobe Premiere Pro/Sony Vegas" to select "MPEG-2 (*.mpg)" or "WMV (VC-1) (*.wmv)" format. You can also choose "Format -> HD Video -> MPEG-2 HD Video(*.mpg)" as out format for Premiere Pro.

Step 3. You can control output video quality by setting resolution, bitrate and frame rate in "Settings". For preserving 5.1 channels surround sound, set audio channels to "5.1 channels" instead of Stereo. To keep 1080p full HD high quality, you can set video bitrate up and Size to 1920x1080.

Step 4. Click on the "Convert" button to start converting ProRes 422 files to Premiere Pro supported MPEG format. By ticking off the checkbox before "Merge into one file" option, you can combine all the checked videos into one file.

When conversion is completed, you can click "Open" to get the Premiere Pro MPEG files from its default output folder.

Now open up Adobe Premiere Pro and you're ready to import Black Magic Intensity Pro recordings to Premiere Pro CS3/CS4 for post-production~
