I'm working my footage from my SONY HXR-NX5U, AVCHD/.mts files directly imported in to FCPX 10.0.3.


My system is as follows: i7 3.4 Quad 16GB RAM internal 1TB7200.


My clips are either in 60i and most reently in 24p, both 1080.


My question is simple: Would it be better to convert everything, before ingestion, to some format that is more native to FCPX or that FCPX can "fly" with, while not sacraficing quality.


I then export to both internet HD quality and DVD...


Thanks in advance.
