There is no way to use the project file, it has to be an AAF. You should be able to batch capture HD, since it will only be looking at offline master clips. How good is it? Considering what it does, it's amazing. If you're expecting your sequence to come in 1:1, it won't even be close. There are a variety of effects that simply don't translate, and if mixing of frame rates were done, those are incredibly problematic. I find in general, going from Avid to FCP was always less painful than from FCP to Avid. That said, my recommendation would be to start Avid and finish Avid. Switching NLEs mid project is a very labor intensive process, and from my perspective as an AE, it's a very difficult thing to control the expectation from producers who expecting it to magically convert everything with no hitches.
