The most important people to talk to are the people that will have to grade and online the final. As that is the job I do I am constantly dismayed by ignorance of finishing workflow by many editors and cinematographers.

Talk early, talk often to them as they are the ones who will have to sweat blood on a tight schedule and budget.

Personal opinion - offline/online workflows are possible with all of the popular NLEs. X, 7, Pr, Avid are all doable but there can be specific gotchas with each one. Knowing how to work around these and how best to prepare a sequence prior to creating xml/aaf is what needs to be discussed as is pixel aspect. Finishing systems like Resolve take the sizing information from those and you can't change from an HD sequence to a 2k or 4k without planning for it.Easiest thing is to create proxies with identical names and pixel aspect and select the correct aspect in the edit timeline so that sizing information comes across without manual adjustment.
