MP4 and ProRes are very different - one is a container while the other is a codec. In post-production, people prefer to use ProRes though MP4 is generally supported by most editing software. What causes this preference is that ProRes is an intraframe codec that requires little power to decode and MP4 (usually H264/H265 encoded) is a lot more resource-intensive. So, for proper editing, ProRes is the better choice, and you are recommended to convert footage to ProRes beforehand for editing.

Tips. ProRes uses intra-frame compression that makes the file significantly larger than other regular files. It is therefore mainly used as an intermediate codec during video editing. To distribute the final file, it is advisable to export ProRes to MP4 H264 or H265 that takes a much smaller size.
