Could someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
Working on a Mac.
(Sorry, just couldn't resist.)

I'll just say that the high end AE users list I frequent suggests that the more common workflow is to bring AE to FCP for color correction. Isn't that one of FCP's strengths?
Also, to the extent that you want to process an FCP project in AE, look for the best way to bring it directly, not through Premiere. Ask in the AE forum what opinions people have. Mac and PC types use AE, but my impression is that only a small proportion of those users use Premiere.
What version of XML export are you creating out of FCP? I am afraid I am using 7.0.1 and not 6, but I thought version 5 was available in FCP 6. At any rate try version 5 if it is available. I have successfully used that version to import the sequence into Premiere.
