THIRD-PARTY SUPPORT 

Third-party developers are already hard at work building AMIRA support into their software tools. Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC is the first non-linear editing system to support the color management of AMIRA QuickTime/ ProRes files, allowing full LUT control and automatic conversion from Log C to Rec 709 within an easy, fail-safe system. Similar announcements from other major developers are expected soon.
