I am sure this has been covered before, but I just can't find it. I have a thirty second spot that I am doing for a client. I shot everything with a Sony Z1U. After capturing the footage I want to use into FCP, I now have HDV footage in my editor. I want to go into After Effects and do some cool mods and then insert back into FCP to output to HDCam. My question is what format do I use while I am outside FCP (I can't use ProRes) is my only option "Animation" for a lossless transfer from FCP to CS3 and back to FCP?
