If you have a computer and drive that's fast enough, why not just AMA the source files and edit from those? I shoot using a Canon XF-300 i full MPEG-2 50 Mbit 1080p. I use the Canon XF utility to back my card(s) up to an external hard drive, then AMA link from that. I sequence all the raw clips, and edit straight from the sequence of AMA linked clips in full 1080p.

I think people over-complicate this stuff with all the off-line/on-line low-res/hi-res proxy stuff. I'm probably not the sharpest knife in the drawer but, for me, my workflow is pretty simple: Shoot. Edit. Export. Done. AMA gets me from start to finish with as little fuss as possible. ;)
