35MM anamorphic film workflow


I'll be working with a project that was shot on 35mm film in anamorphic. I need to unsqueeze and possibly transcode the footage. I haven't worked with film in ages but from what I recall, I should expect to get a drive with a large file or a few large files on a harddrive, depending on the amount of rolls shot.

Depending on what they codec they telecined, I may or may not have to convert to Pro Res.

So I need to do the following:

1. Transcode to pro res
2. Unsqueeze the anamorphic image
3. Subclip the takes - Instead of subclipping, is there a way for it to automatically detect clip breaks, and every time the camera starts/stops, you get a new clip. Is this possible using log and transfer?
4. Export the takes for review.

So what's the best workflow to handle this?

Is it possible to transcode as well as unsqueeze in mpeg streamclip?
Would Cinema Tools be the app to unsqueeze in?
Log and transfer in Final Cut or should I just check anamorphic in Final Cut?

Is there a way to batch exports subclips from the browser?

Thank upi
