switching from Final Cut Pro to iMovie mid-project

I have slightly less than two weeks to edit a video project. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I'm going to start editing on a MacBook with Final Cut Pro (in Location A) and then have to finish on an iMac with iMovie (in Location B). My Final Cut Pro clips should import to iMovie without any loss of quality, right? I assume yes, but I just need to double check so I'm not pulling my hair out in a week.

How can I give Final Cut Pro as a gift?

I want to give someone a copy of Final Cut Pro X as a gift. But since there's no physical package anymore, I can't figure out how to do it, and I'm feeling pretty dumb. I thought maybe an iTunes Gift Certificate, but Apple.com says "iTunes Gift Cards and Certificates can be redeemed for songs, albums, audiobooks, videos, and games on the iTunes Store. They cannot be used to buy Apple products." Help? [more inside]

Making a shrinking grid of video clips without going crazy?

I would like to make a 40 second long outro to a promo video, in which the clip gets smaller, and as it does so, other clips around it come into frame. So, it starts with one clip, shrinks to a grid of 9 clips (3x3 grid), then to 25 clips (5x5 grid), and then the whole thing shrinks to reveal the image behind it. I have an idea that doesn't hurt my head to think about, but what's the easiest method? I'm thinking of doing this. Better explanation inside. [more inside]

How to edit 15fps .avi files in Final Cut Pro?

I have Final Cut Studio 2. I've been asked by my mom to assemble a small edit of all the videos shot on point-and-shoot still cameras during our family vacation this year. When I try bringing the files directly into FCP, it's buggy / i can't edit without problems. I assume there's some conversion I need to do before bringing them in but nothing seems to work.

How do I need to change my workflow and FCP configuration to work with 24p DV footage?

DV / Final Cut Pro question: We just upgraded cameras to a Panasonic DVX100B, largely for the ability to shoot in 24P. However, imported footage still appears interlaced in FCP, and it's unclear to me what our new configuration should be. How will we need to change our workflow in order to edit in 24P? (More specific inside.) On an unrelated note, we just imported a tape which appears to be corrupted. Can it be salvaged? (More details inside.) [more inside]
