iMovie and Final Cut Pro

I'm wondering if a movie edited with iMovie can be further edited using Final Cut Pro.. We have some footage recorded on a video camera that we would like to edit using iMovie that comes with MacBook but we will be submitting this to another person who may be using Final Cut Pro to further edit. Will this work?
Thanks in advance!

You would use the QuickTime export feature to create a high quality file that they could import into a FCP project.
If you are using iMovie 08 or 09, another way is to transfer them the events and project for you iMovie. They can then generate a XML file that FCP can use, although you may loose some effects and transitions, so your edit should really just be cuts. This may be dependent on their version of FCP.
If you are using iMovie 08 or 09, test this, as iMovie has quality issues with some interlaced content from such places as miniDV cameras.CameraTime - Time lapse photography for novice and advanced users.
When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.
