Many thanks Shane, as dependable as always ;-) But…

[Shane Ross] " Why? Compressor has Presets for ProRes and works just fine. And you can enable QMaster to get all the processors working."

Compressor accepts neither the BPAV folder that I copied from the SxS card, nor the MP4 File included therein. I get a warning to the affect of 'corrupt or missing data' or whatever it was (don't remember by heart), but I looked into your workflow tutorial and I may have not properly copied the said folder or it may not have been copied properly (Finder procedure as you described, but not with that tool you mentioned that enables a double check). So I don't get far enough to choose ProRes 422 LT at all. And afraid to say: no, I did NOT back it up, so the one file I have is the only one. I have to admit that I am not comfy with Compressor – for me it's as awkward vs. other apps as is Dropbox vs. Wetransfer. Or maybe I'm doing something wrong, but what?

[Shane Ross] " [Michael Brown] "Do you know of a software that will work on my machine and convert these files to ProRes 422LT? None of my other options accept the files (file alone or folders): Compressor, Streamclip, ClipWrap etc…""

Like I mentioned, I'm on 10.6.8 for a number of reasons, especially to maintain my workflow with FCP7 that I know well enough and wouldn't like to lose. Or how far can I upgrade my OS without having to go for FCPX? I've been reading various threads that dated up to 2013 and for the most part claim FCP7 will run fine on Mountain Lion, which in turn will enable me to go for EditReady which sounds appealing.

Thanks again, looking forward to your comments ;-)
