I have the given 3D array. For some reason prod(X(:,:,1:4),3) gives 0 as the output. That does not match with the output for X(:,:,1)*...X(:,:,4). I do not want to use a loop, I want to use a vectorised method. However, prod is giving me issues. Am I doing something wrong? Is there another method?

By 0 as the output I mean the 4x4 zero matrix

prod gives you element by element multiplication.
Check:
A = rand(2,2,3) ;
X = prod(A,3) ;
Y = A(:,:,1).*A(:,:,2).*A(:,:,3) ; % element by element mulltiplication
Z = A(:,:,1)*A(:,:,2)*A(:,:,3) ;
isequal(X,Y)
ans = logical
1
isequal(X,Z)
ans = logical
0

You cannot vectorize matrix multiplication.
You can make the process a little more compact by using fold() https://www.mathworks.com/help/symbolic/fold.html . However that requires the Symbolic Toolbox
The elements you would implicitly loop over would be created by using num2cell(A,3)
