ProRes 422 or HEVC?

In our untiring commitment to being the ultimate resource for those seeking factual information on uploading HDR videos to YouTube, we’ve added another comparison that aspires to settle the question: should you be transcoding XAVC S-I to HEVC or to ProRes 422 when uploading to YouTube? This 10-second clip took 83 seconds to finish processing in Compressor, creating a whopping 335 MB file in ProRes 422, whereas the job was completed in a mere 40 seconds in HEVC, with a ridiculously tiny file size of only 14 MB – and I struggle to tell them apart when seated just two feet away from my LG 55CX.
