I am editing in Premiere Pro. The native is .h264. Should I render edits and to continue AE and VFX in MOV, AVI , MP4 or other? Final result will be for theatrical release which has then be converted to ProRes file.

From what I understand, once you drop the clip into a sequence, it will ask you if you want to match the sequence settings to the footage, click yes. You can edit h.264 natviely, and output to proress with any issues. Just ensure frame-rate is the same, and check the color on your final output at the end of the edit, when you export. Sometimes, exporting to prores, I've had some color look slightly different, but not that big of a deal. There are a ton of videos on YouTube as far as best ways to export to ProRes, but for me, best quality and frame-rate is the most important for me for exporting. Theatrical release and acquisitions people may want to a different format or flavor of ProRes, so I'd check that as well. Future congrats on your theatrical release !

Will you need to export the video to other applications prior to delivery? If so, transcoding from the H.264 acquisition codec prior to editing will be VERY beneficial; you'll preserve a lot more image quality. You could go to DNxHD, ProRes, Cineform, JPEG 200 or Photo JPEG, just to name a few.
