Hey Fellow VJs,
I'd like to share with you a solution for using the Apple ProRes Quicktime Codec without the need to buy/install Final Cut or other apple ProApp.
The solution was originally posted on my blog, and is mirrored here:

First start by downloading the ProApp codec update direct from the apple website. If you don’t have a ProApp installed on the computer the update won’t work. However using the unpkg software created by timdoug you can extract the codec files and install them manually by moving them into the appropriate library folder.
Move the following files to: Library/Quicktime/
and some more files to Library/Video/Professional Video Workflow Plug-Ins
After that the Codecs will show up in any app the uses the Quicktime Codec library and can be used in programs like Media Express.
