If you do go with this workflow, DO NOT CAPTURE VIA FIREWIRE. You are right, that method is NOT frame accurate. Get DVCAM decks with RS-422 deck control and capture cards for your FCP systems. Then you can do this and feel confident with your EDLs.

It will be a little more expensive than just using firewire decks and no capture cards...but then FIXING all the timecode errors caused by that would cost a LOT bay time. No, build a good system. it will still be far cheaper than an Avid, and work just fine.

One way to save money would be to get one capture device to use for all of your systems. The AJA I/O is perfect for it is an external device that connects to the system via firewire. And yes, it is still frame accurate. Or you can get Kona LS cards for each...up to you.
