Hi there
ffmpeg will do the transcoding exactly as you desire, although you'd need something else to run it over all the files in a folder and do the renaming.
Under Windows I tend to write little javascript files to do it. What's your OS?

 Subject: [FFmpeg-user] Batch transcode and rename
I'm very new to ffmpeg but tell me if this is impossible. I'd like to have a command to convert all the files in a folder to prores proxy, and copy the audio without modification. Then I'd like to rename the transcodes to match original file names and rename the original files with any suffix or prefix to denote that they're the originals.
