Workflow and best practise for projects

Hi guys,

Im working on a project at the moment in Final Cut. It involves about 3 hours worth of footage which has been edited up into 3-4 5 minute videos. It was all filmed in a Canon 5D Mk II and obviously Im using FCP to edit it in.

Im a motion graphic designer so filming has been a newish thing for me and I did a lot of research into the best way to go about tackling this project. The way I did it was take the footage from the 5D and use compressor to convert it to ProRes 422 for editing. The trouble is the project folder for everything is half a TB. Am I doing something wrong? It seems pretty huge for one project. I'm in the process of moving the RAW footage from the camera to an additional external hard drive, so that will save a huge amount of space. Once the projects complete and signed off do I delete the huge 422 transcoded files or do I keep them? Deleting them would save space but then if the client comes back in the future I'd be screwed.

Anyway any hints or tips would be amzing.

Thanks in advance
