Good blog article Interceptor. What versions of iMove and FCP are you using?

Sony RX100+Nauticam+Sea&Sea YS-D1; Sony FX1+Light and Motion BlueFin+SunRay Pro, Sony A1, Nikon D80

iMovie I have 9.04 installed as this has some transitions that later on have been removed but this works also with older versions
Final Cut Pro I have the x version that I trialled but I removed it as I felt it wasn't worth the money
Either way the key is to get 1080p60 mp4 files and skip the import of the program
iMovie events can be seen in fcp so the workflow is still solid

Sounds like a good solution for when I upgrade my MacOS. With my older system I'm getting excellent AVCHD to1080p50 results with the ClipWrap ProRes workaround. More time consuming I admit, but a good use of my still worthy Quad system.
