FCP doesn't work well with native H.264 files. There might be sync issues, there might be exporting issues (flash frames, sync loss)...never know what'll happen until you start working.

No, the workflow for H.264 in the 4 year old, discontinued, no longer updated FCP 7 is to convert all the footage to ProRes, and then edit. Does it IMPROVE quality? No...but it makes it easier to edit.

If you want to do simple edits like this, you need to look at different tools. Premiere Pro CC works with H.264 works with pretty much any native camera or video format. Then you export to what you want. Perfect for what you want to do. there's also'll work native, or convert to ProRes..up to you.

Time to look at tools that'll do what you want, not old tools that require you to do a lot just for something simple.
