i have just collected a bunch of footage documenting the Finnish summer and I would like to get some advice as to how to start 'processing' the footage.

The goal is to create a travel montage, which includes a lot of speed ramping, positioning and stabilization. The focus of the piece will be the interaction between the images, effects and sound. They are all equal in importance.

I intend on pursuing a workflow as such: select and stabilize clips/ sequences/ events in After Effects, then pre-comp and apply Twixtor as needed, pan & scan/ resize/ crop to 1080p or not, export as prores 444, import to FCPx, put it all together as a fluent series of events and rework effects as needed.

Can somoene let me know if I am heading for woes or if I am on the right track. What else should I consider?

I would consider importing your AE clips into Premiere Pro using Dynamic Link instead of exporting ProRes to Final Cut. Then you can make changes in AE that will update automatically in PP without having to re-export.

I would also edit first and THEN do the AE work. You'll have a lot less footage to deal with and a lot less AE work.
