ffmpeg, libx264, and raw output

I've done quite a bit of searching and can't seem to find an answer either way. Does anyone know if there is a way to have ffmpeg output a raw .264 when using libx264? I'm currently decoding ProRes in ffmpeg and piping to x264 for a BD encode. It'd be nice to just have one process running.

And as soon as I post I think of another alternative. I have x264 compiled with lavf, but can't seem to get it to accept a ProRes mov. Do I need to do more than specify lavf as the demuxer?

1 - Yes. Did you try -f h264 or using the extension .h264?

2 - How old is your libavformat?

I had attempted just changing the file extension and that didn't work. Adding the -f h264 did work, however. Thanks!

I'm still curious about the lavf thing though. I compiled all of my builds within the past month. I actually learned of the lavf support and that's what made me recompile x264 to include it. I made sure to go and get new source code for everything when I did, so unless something didn't get removed from my previous installs, it should be month old versions of ffmpeg, ffms, libav, lame, faac, and x264.
