Does anyone have advice as to what is needed for importing uncompressed AVI files into a FCP-Studio Mac editing suite?

We have some 16mm SD footage going to hard drive for editing in a "Matrox Digisuite LE" equipped PC workstation. We want to export to a G5 Mac at a seperate location for DVD authoring and other add ons. We are trying to avoid renting digibeta gear.

Thank you for any ideas!

use any of the many convertors available on the web. Do a search under "AVI to Quicktime Mac" in Google and pick your tool.

I've used a plugin called Perian with good results.

I discovered iMovie HD is capable of importing FLV files which I can then output as whatever I want. I'm guessing AVI files might also be acceptable to iMovie HD...

Last time I checked, you can use Quicktime to export an .AVI to .MOV
