Best way to convert video on PC for MAC Editing

I met with a new client today and I'm going to be shooting content for them to hand to another editor.

I'm on a PC, the editing is to be done on a MAC (DOH!)

I have at my disposal Vegas Pro and Procoder 3 - I'll be shooting 1080i content and ingesting the footage to a firewire drive to hand off to the editor.

I need advice regarding the best way to ingest and convert the m2t files to as high a quality of Quicktime format that the editor will have no issues bringing in to FCP.

I just ran into this problem and tried exporting quicktime out of Premiere Pro. Is there any way you can bring your camera/tapes to their computer and capture on their MAC? Not only because it saves a lot of hassles, but also because FCP can use other tape data, like start/stop/pause times that it can use to 'auto cut' long captures gets lost.

I second the idea to let the other editor to capture on the Mac.

As I understand it, HDVSplit may capture HDV material and save it in the traditional *.m2t file format. Then the Mac editor will be able to import those files. I've never actually used HDVSplit, so can anyone else confirm this?
