If you're doing this for video, I would highly recommend not going through Adobe Bridge, exporting JPEGS, then restitching to ProRes422HQ. By doing this, you'll be compressing the RAW files to JPEG, then putting a compressed image into ProRes422HQ, to then recompress later. Might as well have just shot JPEG to begin with.
Instead, I would directly import from After Effects, set your look in Camera Raw, create an HD or 4K composition, compose the shot, then export that to ProRes422HQ, 4444 or Cineform. This allows you to hold much more information throughout your workflow.
I've definitely had that exact same expression during step 7.
Especially that one time the hard drive crashed...
