Whats the most efficient way to edit a long video with a lot of cuts in after effects?

I am currently working on a music video and have already edited it in Final Cut, I want to color correct it and add special effects in After Effects and wanted to know what would be the most efficient way to do so. I don't want to render out the video because I plan on using AE for video transitions between cuts- and there are a lot of cuts.

If you don't want to spring for Automatic Duck - and if you don't need it's extra features, like carrying over of effects and transitions - there are some scripts which allow you to import an XML from FCP to AE. If you're just using FCP to do a rough edit and will be doing all your effects in AE, it works pretty well (with the exception that, in my experience, clips retimed in FCP don't always import as expected).

Don't have a link handy, but if you search around for 'FCP AE XML script' you should find something that will help you out.
