A MOV file is a common multimedia container file format developed by Apple and compatible with both Macintosh and Windows platforms. It may contain multiple tracks that store different types of media data and is often used for saving movies and other video files. MOV files commonly use the MPEG-4 codec for compression.

ProRes is a line of intermediate codecs, which means they are intended for use during video editing, and not for practical end-user viewing. Apple ProRes 422 is a common video encoding format used for broadcast. This codec offers nearly all the benefits of Apple ProRes 422 (HQ), but at 66 percent of the data rate for even better multistream, real-time editing performance.
