    I've yet to sit down and log/capture footage using FCP. I just import to iMovie and drag the needed clips to FCP. By importing in iMovie, am I reducing the quality of video?

    I would assume it would be the same, but I'm always eager to learn.

    Edit: I'm not shooting HD - just SD on my GL2.

    I'm sure it is the same, it's just the format that may be different. If there is no transcoding after it captures, then you are getting the same quality you'd get in FCP, which is the best quality.
