I've checked the archives and couldn't find what I am looking for, so here goes. I've signed on to cut a low budget indie movie. The director wants to do a rough cut on her Final Cut Express and then pass it on to me to finish on FCP. The footage will be transcoded from a Canon DSLR (AVCHD) through Compressor to ProRes 422. Of course, we'll maintain file structure through the process. Is this a proven workflow? Does FCE support ProRes 422? Or will she have to use the AVCHD files?

It does not support ProRes. Nor does it it support AVCHD natively. The media gets transcoded to the Apple Intermediate Codec and any continuous timecode is lost. This is not a good workflow for you.

All the best,
