Matching codecs for 5D/AF100 shot footage for FCP
Hello- Working on a big documentary project where I'm planning on pretty promiscuously mixing 1080 29.97 Pana AF100 shot footage - my interview set up A Camera - with 1080 29.97p neutral pic setting 5D/7D shot footage - my interview B Camera as well as primary b-roll/location camera.

All my location 5D/7D footage up to this point has been transcoded to Apple Pro Res 422 LT in FCP; presumably I'd log and transfer the interview 5D footage to 422 LT as well. And for now, I'm planning on using ideally a nanoFlash (or Ki Mini Pro if I have to) with the AF100 - so I can record directly to as FCP friendly format as possible.

Wondering what folks would suggest for best Nano-generated AF100 footage codec - knowing it's going to cut right up against the 422 LT 5D material, knowing I want as quick an ingest into FCP as possible (ie no log and transfer.) Recording 50 or 100 Mbps XDCAM 422 MXF in Nano? But s that going to make my timelines a little wonky and processor intensive?

Thanks, Nick.
