According to this thread, importing imovie clips with trailers or maps does not work. Which kind of made sense since there are no corresponding trailer / map motion templates in FCP X.
There is a credits template but probably not the full set (I only have imovie 09).
Importing clips with maps to FCP X simply hangs for me (spinning beach ball).
This post is not to start yet another I hate FCP X. But is anyone at Apple clued up on what they have released?
I don't imagine anyone here would use iMovie, but if there is a workaround to this please share around!
iMovie import All your iMovie Events and projects transfer seamlessly to Final Cut Pro. You can start your project with a quick rough cut in iMovie, then switch to Final Cut Pro for full-featured editing. Or if you usually work in iMovie, you can take your craft to the next level and leverage your existing work. Either way, you can keep cutting without a break in the action.
