Re: Import Files into Final Cut

I'm assuming you're just wanting to edit something together.  You can output TIFF/TARGA/PNG sequences and that will work just fine in FCP. 

If you're wanting to do something compositing wise, you'll want to work with AE at the very least. Fusion being better for that type of work(free) or Foundry's Nuke(not free).  Hope that answers your question.

The only Fusion I could find is Fusion 360, part of Autodesk, which was not free. Thanks for trying.
I should have included that I am converting different video formats over to what Final Cut can use. Current looking for something for DVDs that I have burns.

Re: Import Files into Final Cut

I'm sorry, I should have clarified.  Blackmagic Fusion.  Found here https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/fusion/
FCP can handle most video formats.  If you're on a mac(im assuming you are if you're using FCP), working with animations that have been rendered out to AVI or MOV, should work just fine, although typically, animations are rendered out to file sequences(exr,TIFF,TGA, etc), and FCP can handle those as well.  If you're wanting to burn to DVD, you can simply use an H.264 codec with the bitrate set to a healthy number for your output.  Hope that clarifies things.
