It was an issue of converting .swf files or getting ahold of original, uncompressed files and my client finally got me a copy of the original. I ended up finishing the project in iMovie due to the pressures of a deadline and the steep curve of learning a new video editor (I already knew iMovie).

Still, I see a combination of Final Cut Pro and Vegas filling my future needs. Any information I can get about FCP right now is very welcome indeed.

Thanks again...
