My Sony NX5u cameras are still fairly new to me and I'm still in the midst of the SD/HD transition. I was just reading that it is best to convert the camera's AVCHD .mov files to Apple ProRes 422 for editing in FCP.

First off, how necessary is this?

What if I don't convert them and just log & transfer directly into FCP (which I've done a few times now already)?

Finally, if it really is crucial, what are the highest recommended programs? I've seen Foxreal Video Converter and a couple others here in the forum.

Thank you very much!

MacPro / PowerBook G4, Mac OS X (10.6.6), FCP 7.0.3
