Mixing Canon 5D Mark II footage with Nikon D7000

I must admit to being a bit of a novice so I'd appreciate advice on this question.

Halfway through shooting a video project my Nikon D7000 broke (perhaps a blessing in disguise!) I have now replaced the camera with one much better for the job - Canon 5D Mark II.

My question is this...

I am using Final Cut Pro X to mix the film. I started the project with auto import settings for the Nikon in my project library but when I import the Canon footage (different event but same project) to this same project my sliding camera movements are choppy. I suppose this has much to do with transcoding.

Can anyone suggest a way to mix these two types of footage into one happy, seamless and beautiful film?

THANKS!

Were the cameras shooting on the same frame rate?

I think you're looking for the FCP X techniques forum.

Thanks for trying to help. You were right - it was the frame rates. I ended up using compressor to change my Nikon D7000 24fps (23.98 fps) to 30fps (29.97 fps). It worked for me and now my slider shots are smooth and crisp.
