Adobe rgb avchd footage. How to transcode to cineform srgb?

I have recorded a lot of footage both RAW (hyperlapse) and Video (AVCHD). For the video shots I have used framerates of 23.976 and 59.976 for slow motion. Before I went on the shoot I quickly had to set up a camera with some settings and set it to Adobr rgb, because someone said so.

However, now that I have read my way around different color spaces and the AVCHD codec, I found out that using Adobe RGB may have not been the best idea in terms of postproduction complications. Also I want to transcode the footage to a better performing codec and therefore decided to transcode to eather a cineform yuv 10 bit or rgba 12 bit (windows system).

I know that I could work on the footage natively in premiere, but I have plenty storage space and would like to increase the performance. Also, I am planning to do lots of grading as well as time remapping, masking and transitions in after effects without losing more quality.

Now I have the following question: Might it happen that if I use prelude and adobe media encoder to quicktime cineform, the color space will not be analysed properly and therefore it will clip some of the colors? I can't find anything about that, or even anyone who asked a question about how to batch transfer a video from Adobe rgb to a srgb color space.

Thanks for all of your help and corrections. I am relatively young so all of the concepts are relatively new to me. However I want to make sure that I can develop a workflow that allows me to be more professionell in the future and fulfill my creative goals.
