I’m told that FCP 7 doesn’t work with 4K XAVC.
Will the XDCAM Transfer Application allow me to convert to ProRes or should I just be happy with Apple XDCAM 422 (the default) which is a form of ProRes?

No, our plugins do not transcode to ProRes. Upon import to FCP/conversion to .mov they only re-wrap the MPEG-2 XDCAM video. If you need ProRes you can use Compressor or FCP on the Transfer-generated .mov files. The XDCAM codecs perform well in FCP so it will depend on what you prefer or if you have to work in ProRes for other reasons.
JFYI the Apple implementations of the XDCAM codecs are not a form of ProRes. They are very different codecs with different profiles.
Hope this helps..

That’s because Apple officially stopped supporting FCP7 over 3 years ago. Even though FCP7 is “dead” lots of folks, including me, still use it.
