video Editing Roughcut

Hi filmmakers,

I'm still a newb at editing, so if this questions seems really dumb, have a laugh and then please help me!!

I have a rough cut for a 4 minute short film. It's like 92% done. I'm looking to hire an editor to finish the job - color grade, audio syncing, etc., to tighten it up.

I edited the film on Final Cut - would it be possible to transfer the entire timeline over to them if they don't use Final Cut?

Hopefully this makes sense. Thanks!
