ProRes 4:2:2 HQ. That's what the distributors will want as the delivery format.

They are the most popular because they're intermediate codecs, they are specifically designed for editing! Most NLEs will accept a variety of codecs for editing but ProRes and DNxHD are preferred professionally because they avoid the issues inherent with the common long GOP codecs.

That's only true in some cases.

I personally prefer DNxHD/HR but I'm equally happy with ProRes.
