Does anyone know of any software that will convert EX3 BPAV folders directly to ProRes files without having to go to XDcam first? Thanks in advance!

Sorry, with FCP 7 it's always a two step process. re-wrap to XDCAM QT, and then transcode that to ProRes.

If you're working directly in FCP7, Shane is 100% correct.

However, if you're handy with FFMPEG/FFMBC, XML, and scripting, you can convert the files directly from the copies of your cards to ProRes files. (I did precisely this for a project last year.) The caveat of course is that the ProRes that the FF packages write is not Apple authorized... which may or may not be an important point, depending on your workflow.
