Not really in much of any way. An XML can be sent from 6 and converted using a third party utility to an XML that can be read in the current FCP. The media that can be use in 6 is also compatible.

Does anyone know if the Sony FX6 is compatible with FCPX?

My documentary team has two FX6 cameras and we've shot lots of material and edited it in FCP. We mainly shoot UHD 4k/23.98 10-bit 4:2:2 XAVC-I "All Intra". It is very smooth to edit in FCP and the metadata support for MXF is good. Sometimes we've recorded ProRes 422 from the FX6 to an Atomos Ninja V or Shogun 7 and that also works well but the image quality is identical to the Sony XAVC-I, and there is less camera metadata.

The specialized gyro stabilization data is not supported by FCP or any other NLE. To use that the FX6 material must first be imported to Sony Catalyst Browse, stabilized, then exported to ProRes or MXF. The gyro stabilization is effective but mainly for 60 fps, less so 24 fps. It also requires all lens optical stabilization be disabled, so we rarely use it for that reason.

I suppose it's only compatible with Final Cut Pro 10.6 and higher.

I got an FX6 in January 2021. I believe I was running FCP 10.5.1 then and worked fine on the 4k All-Intra XAVC-I camera files. They were very smooth to edit and quality was good.

Have a doc using the same camera and all the same codecs previously listed here (though at 25fps) and honestly, it works perfectly in FCP and with my M! gear without any need for proxies/optimised etc.

And I love how it looks too...
