Final Cut Pro X + After Effects

Anyone rocking these two programs and have a good workflow down?

I'm just curious what the best way to shove stuff between them is
now that FCPX isn't nearly as flexible as the older versions.

2014 - Robocrop - "Pads of Passion" RomCom (Best Original Score - Christchurch)
2013 - Robocrop - "The Price of Pilsner" Horror
2012 - Robocrop - "Promises" Crime - DQed (Nominated Best DQed Film)
2011 - Robocrop - "Protocol" One Room (Crime) - LATE

Bump.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to be using FCPX for the main editing
so I'm still unsure of the best way to bounce stuff between them.

Apparently there is now an app which you can use, seems like a reasonable price $13.99

Alternatively you can do this.

Thank you for tackling the Googling that I was apparently too dimwitted to do.

Haha, seriously, though, I appreciate it!

Interplay between FCPX and other applications is still pretty immature. Although I think that CS6 might do it natively?

As for me, the only thing I know is how to edit iTunes movies and TV shows on Final Cut Pro and After Effects. When you import iTunes files to these two powerful editing video software, you will meet the error message that the imported files are not recognized by them.
But you can use iTunes Media Converter (https://www.drmare.com) to convert iTunes DRM M4V to FCP and After Effects compatible format. After that you can easily edit them on any video editor.
