[Steven Austin] " I just learned that it's being recorded to a Kia Pro recorder. Don't know what codec that generates... (No tape.)"

ProRes and DNxHD. Guessing they are recording ProRes since you are using FCP.

[Steven Austin] "So, do I convert the line cut to Pro Res"

No, it's being recorded that way.

[Steven Austin] "bring that into the timeline and put it on top of the 5 multiclipped angles?"

Best to MULTICLIP you can see them all at the same time, and cut to the angle you want. WARNING...5 streams of ProRes will require more than Firewire 800...might be much for eSATA. Thunderbolt connection might work, but Fibre, SAS connected drives will work. YOu need a fast RAID to play this back.

[Steven Austin] "What's the process here?"

Find a common point, slate, clap...timecode (wouldn't that be nice) and multiclip them. Read up on this in the manual if you don't know the process.

[Steven Austin] "After I cut the show, add B-roll/graphics, I'll need to have it mixed & color graded, QC'd & output to HD Cam."

Will you be doing that? or will that be sent out to others?
