I shot a bunch of home movies on a simple point-and-shoot Canon a few years ago, and I would like to edit it in Final Cut Pro (6). The camera was a Canon SD-770:

Amazon.com: Canon PowerShot SD770 IS 10MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom (Silver): Camera & Photo

I understand that these cameras and DSLR's are sort of a nightmare for FCP, but I read that it isn't impossible. I have a familiarity with FCP6, but not the Suite. I was told that I should probably use Cinema Tools, but I haven't been able to figure it out.

Can anyone give me some advice on doing this? I really appreciate any insight you can offer to me. Feel free to give "baby steps". Thanks in advance.

I'd try MPEG Streamclip as I mentioned in this thread.

CameraTime - Time lapse photography for novice and advanced users.
