Export from FCP to Avid Liquid

I'm asking this here since I expect more people work with the EX/FCP combo here than on the Mac/FCP forum.

I'm just learning FCP and still have Avid Liquid Chrome as my main edit system. It's connected to everything, whereas FCP is on a Macbook Pro and only connects through firewire. I'd like to be able to edit on FCP, take the files into Liquid, and then output them from there to tape or whatever, since it saves buying a breakout box (yet) for FCP.

What I'd like to figure out how to do is export from FCP in the native EX 35mps mode and get something into liquid. I can't export it as Quicktime because I can't upgrade Liquid to a current version of QT - it doesn't support the newer versions, and won't. I've tried various other formats and they tend to look pretty back coming into liquid. I tried exporting as XDCAM and when I import that into Liquid it don't show up; I've tried chnaging the .xxx to .m2v and that shows up, but only the first second or so of a long clip.

So I'm at a loss and will appreciate any help anyone can offer.

Thanks,
John

Couldn't you encode your project as a m2v file? I am sure Compressor would have some nice settings for m2v encoding of your project. I also have Chrome and m2v works great in Liquid. I usualy use my own custom made software to convert up to 300 mbits/s I frame only m2v files. I usually only ever use 150 mbits/s however which is still awesome looking. I'm sure compressor could do at least 35 mbits/s.

I might be able to do that, but I have to learn a lot more about FCP and Compressor first. That's the problem, I'm a MacVirgin, and after 25 years of using PCs it's a different world.
