1. Yes, but you won't be happy working with it.
2. Yes, and that would be whatever HD editing codec you have in your QT library…hopefully Pro Res 422.
3. Some flavor of 720p60. (I don't have 5.1, so I can't be more specific.) The sequence settings should be Frame size: 1280X720 frame size, Pixel AR: square, Field Dominance: None.
I'd use a card reader and copy everything to a media drive. Then transcode (MPEG STreamclip is faster than Compressor). Then import.

Hey Russ, he has FCP 5, which doesn't do ProRes. The best option for FCP 5 is DVCPRO HD.
Use MPEG STREAMCLIP or Compressor to Convert to DVCPRO HD...with matching frame size and rate as what you shot. Then, choose the DVCPRO HD Easy Setup that best matches that as well.

Thank you for all of your help.
Now, I have problems with Compressor. After I import the file, I go to Settings > Advanced Format Conversions > DVCPRO HD 720p60.
After I select that, I go to submit the batch, and am met with this dialog box: "Cannot submit batch. Cannot connect to background process.:
What does this mean/how can I fix it?
