Noob question: Best work flow to edit HD footage in Premiere and export in x265

Hello everyone,

I would like to raise a quick question as I tried to get back into the field after a couple of years babysitting (more than a couple actually).
I used to film my kids with a Sony HD camrecorder (PJ740) for 4 years now and have a tons of HD raw footage captured as follow:

ormat : AVC
Format/Info : Advanced Video Codec
Format profile : High@L4.2
Format settings, CABAC : Yes
Format settings, ReFrames : 2 frames
Format settings, GOP : M=1, N=15
Codec ID : 27
Duration : 51s 51ms
Bit rate mode : Variable
Bit rate : 1 150 Mbps
Maximum bit rate : 26.0 Mbps
Width : 1 920 pixels
Height : 1 080 pixels
Display aspect ratio : 16:9
Frame rate : 59.940 (60000/1001) fps

Long ago, when I acquired my cam, I made some attempts in Adobe Premier to edit footage and export it in h264. I played back then with lots of different settings and in the end...delayed delayed and delayed again to clearly work on it.

5 years later, I am stuck and now I decided to finally move forward the footage but tech evolved and I would like to know what would be the best approach to benefits from 2017 technology and export stuff in x265.

I don't care much about devices not ready for x265, or slow encoding process (quite a strong computer to do it), i only care about quality with best size (I don't want to spend TBs for nothing).

Therefore I was looking to export Adobe Premiere footage in raw HD using DNxHD MOV (as exporting matching source in Premiere results in exporting in MPEG2 60MBps which decrease quality (I can see it)) and then encoding the DNxHD MOV in handbrake in x265, using slow preset and Constant Quality around 16.

Do you have any advices on that idea ?

Thanks a lot for the time reading me
