I've got a similar workflow issue. I don't want to keep around the AVCHD formated files becauase I can't organize it. I don't want to keep around the pro-res versions of the files because they're too big. So I'm using Clipwrap to convert the AVCHD files to mov. Final Cut Pro seems to handle them directly ok. However, it doesn't handle 720 60p files at all. They play back as all white frames. Quicktime plays them back, but it's very flakey. Sometimes they only play back as black. So it appears that the quicktime libraries don't handle these h264 mov files very reliably. If anyone has a workflow that keeps original quality without huge file sizes, I'd love to hear it.

I'm using Final Cut Pro 7.03, but I'm hoping a workflow will work well with both packages?
