Canon C300 Green screen workflow

What's the best workflow to bring in Canon C300 footage (1080p/29.97) to FCP7 for green screen keying. I normally use the Log & Transfer from Canon to ProRes422. Is that best way to keep the 4:2:2 color space for the best green-screen? Why I ask is, I just did that and the keys aren't nearly as good as I usually get from other cameras I have, XDCamHD422 or even DVCProHD.

Is there a better way to get my C300 footage into FCP for this application?
Thanks in advance!

That's the workflow. Nothing better than ProRes for FCP. The C300 shoots the XDCam 422 codec, can FCP L&T that in native? I'll have to check.
