Canon 1080/25p and Panasonic 1080/50p in one timeline?

Hi out there.

I have a problem as I have to film with two different cameras tomorrow. And afterwards I edit the images in one single timeline. I have no other option than these two cameras:

One is the Canon 7D
The other one the Panasonic HDC-SD909

Canon 7D only records 1080/25p

The Panasonic HDC-SD909 records always interlaced, BUT: one can additionally record 1080 at 50fps. There is NO option of recording 1080/25p.

I will now film with Canon at 1080/25p and Panasonic with 1080/50p.

My possible editing suites are Final Cut 7, Final Cut X and Adobe Premiere (at the university).

My Plan:
- to film both cameras progressive (25p and 50p) and to export the Canon7D material to Prores 1080/50p. Then I can simply open a 1080/50p timeline in Final Cut.

My questions:
- It makes sense, as I only have to double the images ... I will not loose anything, right? Is it the best workflow?

- Or better export to Prores at 1080/25p?

- Or should I record interlaced? But the 7D does not record interlaced ... I guess that makes no sense at all, even if I could re-compress it to 1080i, as I will only loose quality, right?

Thanks for helping me out! Thats kind of you! Best, Florian.

Okay, problems solved. I have recorded in 1080p50 with th Panasonic and with 1080p25 with the Canon7D.
Then I converted it to a ProRes Format with 1080p25 and both cameras look very nice on a Final Cut timeline. The look is quite similar, even the colours match more or less.
