FCP 7 offline workflow for 4K XAVC footage from Z100

Hey guys, a workflow questions here.

I'm working on a documentary with a lot of different cameras. One of those include the Sony z100, shooting in 4k XAVC. We are editing FCP 7, 23.98 Apple ProRes HQ, looking to finish in 2K, so we would like to go back to the original 4K XAVC file for online.

What is the best way to bring the footage into FCP 7? My understand is that XAVC 4k is currently not supported by FCP7, is that correct? And if so, how should I create the offline files? Is it easier if I make new 4K ProRes 444 master and then transcode to a 422 HQ?
