FCP 7 you would use the log and transfer function that would convert your footage to the ProRes flavour of your choice while importing. During this conversion process you need to walk away from the computer until it is done - otherwise clips can get truncated as they are importing. One nice thing about using the L&T interface is it adds to the clips time-of-day timecode from when the clips were shot (so long as the entire card structure is intact). Unsure if MPEG Streamclip does this or just zeroes each clip.

FCPX will create 'optimized' Prores versions in the background once you import the camera original H.264 mov files.
