Oh, that's good to know, thank you.

this link talk more about using proress with ffmpeg:

This looks very interesting too; my project definitely involves balancing
CPU usage in compression with resulting data size, with the absolute
requirement that the compression be 100% guaranteed to be real time. With
modest hardware and three full-HD channels plus a 720p channel, it's a fine
line and no doubt a better understanding of the prores encoder and its
options will be very valuable.

I think I would disregard educated comments at my peril!

thanks again :)
