    Final Cut Express importing
    I just bought a new camera today. It saves everything as ".mp4". When I try and drag and drop the files into Final Cut Express 4 , I get a caption saying "file error- unknown file name". What's up with that?

    But why won't it work just through FCE? It should. .MP4 is like compatible with everything. Going through iMovie takes FOREVER.
