Best practice to use ultra key on .MTS footage + intermediate formats

Hi.

On Premiere Pro Cloud v8.0

Will it make a visible difference if I convert my .MTS greenscreen'd footage to a denser format before pulling a key? I'm thinking Prores, only because I used to do that in FCP. Any recommends?

Also, in general I'm finding h264 footage hellish sluggish with three-way color correctors applied and am wondering if people are converting to an intermediate format before attempting color correction?

Cheers
Lucy

Transcoding won't help with quality, but it can help with performance.

It's very specific how to import MTS: use the media manager in premiere to navigate to the media.

If you plan to transcode, it's wise to use the Prelude workflow.

What do you mean by "It's very specific how to import MTS"?

Some people have trouble ingesting avchd.
So for those it is important to copy entire card to harddrive and then ingest via Media Browser.

If your machine can handle it edit natively.
