Trying to match settings but FCP still requires rendering. Any ideas?

I'm trying to use exported iPhoto slideshow movies in my FCP project and trying to match settings but FCP is still requiring render. Here is a screen grab. Any idea what else I need to do in iPhoto export to match it to my project settings? Do the Compressor settings matter?

The ANIMATION codec isn't an editable codec. It is a transport codec. You need to convert to something like DV50 or ProRes NTSC. Or DV/NTSC, but that is far lower quality.

Thanks Shane, that was it. Also, my apologies, that clip was a Motion clip, not an iPhoto clip. Anyway, I re-exported as "DVCPRO50 NTSC" and problem solved! Although, now I am beginning to wonder which overall sequence settings will give me the highest quality video results from captured miniDV footage eventually going to DVD. There doesn't seem to be a straight answer on this, just LOTS of information about CODECS etc...making my head spin. Maybe a topic for another post.
