No transcoding needed for mixing Sony EX-1 and Canon XF-100 footage?

Quick question: a friend of mine wants to mix some footage he shot with a Sony EX-1 with footage I shot on a Canon XF-100. (Footage from both were shot in 1080 at 24p.) He put all of the footage in a sequence set for "XDCAM HD422 1080p24," which if I'm not mistaken is the codec for the EX-1 footage (and obviously not the Canon). The Canon footage I shot went into this sequence without any problems and *seems* to be okay. He doesn't even need any rendering, it all seems to work fine. Is he missing a step (i.e. shouldn't he transcode?) or is this all there is to it?

XF cameras shoot in XDCAM 422 codec. If there's no render bar you should be good to go. If you're worried you can change it to Log and Transfer into ProRes422 using the gear and Preferences icon in the L&T window.

Cool - it seems to be working for him, so he says he's fine leaving it as is. Thanks!
