Is that possible, can't find anything on the web so I'm presuming it can't be done?
Possible to convert prores to xavc ...?

ffmpeg can reportedly produce XAVC-compatible files (it's just a subset of h.264.)

Thanks Phil, trouble is I'm not so keen to try development software nowerdays...for fear of upsetting my computer. I'll tell the client he can't have xavc instead.! Must have that coffee soon.

The only thing that I can think of that might be capable would be Sony's Catalyst software. I haven't used it for a while though, so can't remember if it'll take you from Prores to XAVC.

Had a quick look at the free Cat browse, that I use just for viewing XAVC footage.. doesn't look like you can import Prores to it though.. the pay Cat Prepare might..
Sign of the times.. client actually wants XAVC and not Pro res... thanks Fs7..! at last

If quicker workarounds fail, I know for a fact Sony Vegas Pro can take ProRes and Render to Sony XAVC.
Also is this page stretched way out for anyone else?
