mpeg choosing right format to convert to work in fcp

So i've been running around circles for a month now, just trying to get this one video to work. so right now i used my black magic intensity pro to capture 22 min 1280 x 720p 59.9 fps video. only its a 122gb and a avi. i've been trying several formats to convert to that should work, but some were lower quality or had audio but no video. i thought i had it at one point but it turned out it was h.264 which fcp doesn't really like, even though i spent hours waiting for to render and export. when i tried exporting the h.264 it only exported half of the sequence. so last night i tried converting it to prores again , and once again theres audio but no video.

so my question is this , what settings do i need to punch in to mpeg to get a format that fcp , no loss of quality and most importantly has video. on a side note ,interlace vs de-interlace or neither

fcp version 7
