I get the impression you're not gonna be happy with any answer, but I feel compelled to try yet again:

FCP is a video editor. Not a picture editor. Video, in the HD realm, tops out at 1920 x 1080. This is far less than than the 3K or higher you mentioned.

FCP was written at a time when 18MB pictures were NOT the norm. This is now a problem. Which leads to....

Apple DOES get the point. That's why FCP X exists. FCP X remedies your issue. Technology moves, man. So does your camera, and so must your software.

AE is an EFFECTS editor....NOT a video editor. We do not live in a world where one program does EVERYTHING the best. Thus, we have multiple tools.

Avid, FWIW, can't handle anything larger than 1920 x 1080. Point to a 5K image? Avid resizes to the size of the project. Hey, at least FCP can handle 2 + 2.5 K.

Premiere? yes, Premiere handles larger images. Not all NLEs are created the same....if they were, what kind of market place would we have?

Hundreds of thousands of people for several years have had to deal with this limitation. So do you. If this is the least of the things I have to worry about during the day with my VIDEO NLE, then I'm thrilled.
