Hoping someone can help with this edit workflow question:
I currently shoot video on Canon DSLRs (in H264 MOV format), and edit on a late 2009 iMac (2.8ghz i7 processor, 16gb memory).
The films I make are mainly for web rather than TV broadcast, and beyond basic colour grade / tidying up, have minimal effects added (no CGI).
Until recently, I used Final Cut Pro 7, using FCP's Log & Transfer function to import and edit footage in Pro Res 422 format.
Having just moved to Premiere Pro CC 2017, I'm trying to figure out the most efficient workflow with the best resulting image.
Should I import and edit in native H264 MOV? Or ingest and edit as either Pro Res or DNxHD?
If Pro Res or DNxHD, what's the best way to ingest (or import / transcode)?
I've been reading mixed things via Google; mainly Adobe-related articles explaining a native workflow, vs various articles sponsored by transcoding software companies, saying that transcoding will have a better result.
Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

Hi fox ! This is my last edit, a short film about freestyle snowboarding. A beautiful day in a marvelous park (La Clusaz) with the two killers Matteo Cuny and Nicolas Palladio. Top of the pop, we finished with a beautiful sunset. So glad and happy to have shot this.
Comments are welcome dudes! Some pics of the session can be found here : http://www.switchmag.fr/decouverte/2015/11391-session-park-a-la-clusaz-matteo-cuny-nico-palladio.html

I have a lot of problems with the preview in adobe premiere pro and quicktime when it comes to color grading. These problems I experienced on different computer running Mac os x and different monitors calibrated or not. The issue is that the footage (h.264 / AVCHD) no matter if itÂ´s from a 5d or a sony a7s looks alway more saturated and more punchy in the preview of premiere then after exporting and opening in quicktime. I think itÂ´s a gamma problem. the thing is when i use magic bullet and the magic bullet looks preview inside premiere, it looks the same then in quicktime. when i use vls to playback the footage it looks the same then the preview of premiere pro. i made an example foto with four pictures. itÂ´s a slight difference but if u look careful you will see it. it really drives me crazy. does anybody have the same experience or a solution?

I am primarily a stills photographer and so am very comfortable with the Lightroom sliders for changing the hue, saturation and luminance of individual colours (ie. this). I also quite like the Clarity slider.
When it comes to video grading in Premiere Pro / After Effects, I am ok with the control I have over highlights, shadows, etc. However I can't find any effect with similar colour controls to Lightroom. Most of it is either sweeping changes to the whole image or individual channels (R/G/B). Can anyone point me to what I'm looking for? :)
