Best Transcoding Program for Mac?

I am a recent convert to the Mac and am searching for the best way to transcode my AVCHD footage to edit in iMovie and FCP X. There is a lot of information out there, free programs, expensive programs, etc. I'm having trouble figuring out which way to go.

So far I have found these programs that convert AVCHD to Apple ProRes:

ClipWrap
NeoScene
Aunsoft Video Converter
VoltaicHD

I also understand that iMovie and FCP X can convert the files too, but you need to keep the same directory structure as was recorded on the card...not the best for organization / archiving.

What is the best method to properly transcode video from the G3 (AVCHD) and my 7D (H.264) to properly edit?

Thanks!
