MP4 and AVCHD conversion to ProRes
on Apr 5, 2020 at 6:48:14 am

Hi all

I have just been handed a short film (30 min?) to cut/grade/everything. It's been shot in (mostly) MP4. Considering it's going to need a lot of effects and CGI, I felt it would be advantageous to convert the whole thing to Pro Res (or DNxHD) before I start.

Here's the catch. I have spent well over a week searching for a free, or economical, converter program. Most of the $27 ones finish up around $105-110 in these corona days and I baulk at that for one (free) job. I tried Handbrake, but it's extremely slow and a bit cumbersome. I also worry a bit about the quality of some. Needs to be 1920 -1080HD.

At last, my question: Does anyone know of a good quality, free or not expensive conversion app? I shall be very grateful for any advice.
