Apple ProRes 4444 is an extremely high-quality version of Apple ProRes and features full resolution, and it is used for storing and exchanging motion graphics.

Apple ProRes 422 HQ is a higher version than Apple ProRes 422, and Apple ProRes 422 LT is a more highly compressed codex than Apple ProRes 422 and it is perfect for conditions where storing capacity and data rate are quite needy.

As a more highly compressed codex than Apple PRores 422 LT, Apple ProRes 422 Proxy is used for offline workflows that ask for low data rates but full resolution is still required.
