You will probably have to convert the videos first, to something the s/w recognizes. There are a number of programs for this. I use Freemake Video Converter whien I have to deal with video this way. For more options, take a look at MajorGeeks.com website. There is a pretty complete section on multimedia, with free and shareware.

Apple rewrote Final Cut Pro from the ground up this time, leaving a number of things behind, unfortunately. They've taken a lot of flak over it, but Apple is Apple, and they aren't likely to budge.

I have recently found this out while shopping for and editing software. Now, Adobe Premiere seems to have an edge over the rest. What's your opinion?

No first-hand knowledge myself, but a Final Cut Pro X update was released a couple of days ago...

Some missing bits restored, seems to be a commitment to do more in the coming months.
