As far as I know, neither. Those are Windows hard drive formats. NTFS needs a third party system option before you can use a Mac to write to drives formatted with it. FAT32 has a 2gb file size limit.

Neither. FCP-X uses HFS+ as its file structure.

FCP X is an application. It shouldn't care what filesystem format you're using, as long as OS X supports writing to that format.
