Final Cut Pro enables videographers to export projects as Apple ProRes 422, Apple ProRes 422 (HQ), Apple ProRes 422 (LT), Apple ProRes 422 (Proxy) and Apple ProRes 4444 in different settings depending on their final use.
Sometimes video editors need a third party application to convert these Apple ProRes clips to other formats like MKV, MP4, AVI, MPG, H.264, FLV, WebM and more to fit other uses, that’s because Final Cut Pro itself doesn’t support rewrapping exported ProRes to these video formats and so is Apple Compressor.

Any assistance with that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.”
You probably have been in the same situation as mentioned above. Apple ProRes is an intermediate codec that provides high-quality, frame-accurate editing. Apple describes ProRes as visually lossless. That means while data is being removed during compression, the resulting images do not suffer from image degradation. Unlike H.264, ProRes is not a distribution codec for finished work. That’s why people sometimes need to convert ProRes to other formats. As for transcoding Apple ProRes to other formats for different usages, Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac is what you need. In the guide below, we will introduce how to convert Apple ProRes clips exported from Final Cut Pro to your desired file formats (e.g. MKV, MP4, AVI, MPG, H.264, FLV, WebM, etc.) by using Pavtube program in detail.
