FCP to Redcinex to DPX to Resolve and Back

Hi Everybody,
I'm trying to nail down a final workflow for a feature I'm about to color. It was shot on a scarlet at 4K and cut in FCP 7. Here is my planned workflow:
1) FCP to EDL
2) EDL in Redcine X, transcode all to HD Uncompressed DPX
3) Add DPX to Resolve Media Pool, open original EDL
4) Color in resolve, export back to FCP
5) Re-conform in FCP

Now...I haven't done this process before. Am I missing anything? I'm not sure about steps 2,3,4. Also, how do I take into account the FCP transitions? Do I need to add handles on the footage, or is that done with the initial EDL/XML export?

How about FCP to Resolve, relink to camera originals, grade, and export back to FCP?

How did you edit in FCP7? not with the R3D files I hope. Anyway, yeah I don't think taking the extra step to Redcine X is necessary. You can conform in Resolve using the EDL to your original R3D files. Looks like you'll be rendering the Final Grade to ProRes 422HQ I believe since you're going back to FCP7. Any dissolve or fades will be recognized in the EDL.

There is a preset option as a Round-Trip render at the Delivery Window (top left). Just use that preset, export EDL/XML from resolve (your graded timeline) from the conform page. Open it in FCP.

lots of video on youtube and Vimeo that teaches you how to do this.

I hope that helps, cheers
