Convert M4V in order to import M4V to Final Cut Pro

Problem 1: Import M4V to FCP

I transferred a DVD to a MPEG-4 movie using HandBrake. I can open and screen the file (just over 2 hours) using QuickTime, but I cannot import it to FCP–which tells me it doesn’t recognize the format. I need to edit it for a documentary sample reel. What can I do to get it into FCP for editing?

Problem 2: M4V to Final Cut Pro. Any ideas?

I’ve been doing a lot of actor’s reels for local actors. they come to me with a DVD of their work and I’ve been using HandBrake to pull the files off the disc, which results in an m4v file. I’ve had some success converting this to ProRes in QuickTime and editing this in FCP. Does anyone have a better workflow?
