Anything lost when importing iMovie 08 to FCE?

    Specifically, if I have some stills and have taken the time to put the Ken Burns effect on them, when I import into FCE, will they still have that movement on them? I don't want to take time and do that and then lose it all.

    Is there anything else that will not import well?

    Unfortunately, I don't think you can import things like the Ken Burns effect as keyframes into Final Cut Express. Your best bet is to render out the video from iMovie into a high quality format (can you use Animation?) and importing that file into Final Cut.
