Default Best way to edit EX1/EX3 material?

I was surprised how good Edius 5 performs when using XDCAM EX native material (long gop, 35mbit) on the timeline. Anyway: ist there still an advantage to convert the footage to CanopusHQ or any other codec before editing? Let's say you use lots of filters and transitions will the quality go down sooner when not using CanopusHQ? Thanks in advance for the clarification.

It's MPEG data, so the compression/decompression will come with its own overheads on teh CPU, leaving less available for effects, etc. For lighter pieces of work with fewer tracks, it's fine to leave it as it is. (and in fact, you can edit right off the XDCAM media!)

I bring a Macbook to longer jobs and export to .mxf.
Higher overhead in E5 but edits like butter!
