Nikon D7000 Workflow

I have just acquired a Nikon D7000, and have tried importing some raw video footage shot with it into FCP 6.0. I am not an FCP expert, all I have used it for so far is cutting HDV shot with a Canon XH A1. The raw video from the D7000 has a very jerky appearance, moving objects do not move smoothly through the frame. I'm guessing there's something wrong with my sequence settings or easy setup but I don't have enough experience to know what.
As always your help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Rich.

You need to use MPEG Streamclip to convert the raw MPEG4 clips to the ProRes editing CODEC.

Thanks Nigel.
I see a lot of reference to Mpeg Streamclip on this forum, does it basically do the same as recompressing your source footage using the media manager in FCP? Is it better?
The resulting 422 files are several times the size of the original source files, any way around this? I see an investment in HDs coming my way.

MPEG Streamclip is about twice as fast as using Compressor. There is no escape from larger files size as to be easier to edit ProRes is a frame based CODEC. If you upgrade to FCP 7 then you can use ProRes LT which is a lower bit rate & thu smaller files size but still extremely good quality.
