Does HandBrake Encode ProRes Videos?

In brief, Apple ProRes is a family of proprietary intermediate codecs, and the ProRes-encoded video is commonly saved in .mov or .mxf video format. As the ProRes is mainly developed for post-production editing, many people wonder whether HandBrake suppports ProRes video in two cases.

  • Can HandBrake transcode ProRes video to MP4 for practical end-user playback and viewing?
  • Can HandBrake support ProRes export for editing?

Well, as HandBrake Documentation officially states, HandBrake can open a number of production formats produced by professional video cameras and NLEs, including Apple ProRes, which means HandBrake is capable of transcoding Prores to H.264 or HEVC video for hassle-free playback, but can't encode and export to ProRes format.
