An mp4 basic, no H264, works for me. PT hates H264 and will run poorly.....at least it does for me. I'll run any mp4 through Compressor ($50 App Store) and strip off any other codec that has been added. Works great. Run the video off of a separate drive.

DNxHD also works very well, though the files are pretty large. I've recently had a few problems with ProRes for some reason. Maybe convert your ProRes to DNxHD?

this is a good converting program demo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11KeCOM7wVU
a lot of video editors use it to convert DLSR video to DNx or Pro Res for editing
