Have some Prores files exported from your NLE editing software such as Premiere Pro CC, After Effects CC, Premiere Elements, Avid Media Composer or shot with your Canon/Panasonic/Red/Sony/Alexa camera and wish to load the Prores files into Windows Movie Maker for adding titles, effects and transitions.
