I haven't tried chroma keying in Final Cut Express, but I'm pretty sure it depends on your needs and workflow. If you use Premiere for editing movies than AE should be more integrated. Yet, if you really want to get awesome results and have some spare bucks, I'd say you look at some plugins. After all neither AE nor FCE is specialized in chroma keying. ...

I think Menu -> Sequence -> Settings -> Load Sequence Preset..., then picking choosing a 1080p preset might do what you want. You'll probably have to delete and re-render anything you've pre-rendered. You can set the default sequence preset for all new sequences with Easy Setup under the application menu.

The problem was with the cross-dissolve transition that I was trying to render. Technically, I haven't figured out the problem, but now I know what is causing the problem. I am able to render video in other sequences and that works just fine. I haven't tried rendering a cross-dissolve transition in another sequence. ...

I guess I'll answer my own question: After a lot of searching last night, I found a YouTube video that demonstrated a method to animate the flip of video clips using a free plugin called MultiSpace from idustrial revolution.

In general I would recommend Final Cut Pro X, because Final Cut Studio has been discontinued. If there are compatibility reasons I would recommend Final Cut Studio.

FCPX, I've heard, is much easier but different. Its like a combination of FCPS and iMove: Simple, Elegant, Powerful, but overall different and in that sense incompatible with other FC project files. Its like OSX was at its time, or iMoive 8: "It breaks the line". If it's for good or not depends on you: how used you are to your workflow/plugins/etc. ...

While AE has a chromakey plugin in the box, I have good experience with: http://www.redgiantsoftware.com/news/featured/KeyingSuite11/ There are several tutorials on there website, and this gave me the best results. Of course, your footage is the key

After Effects is well know as a finishing software. The best chroma key plug-in I saw in A.E. was keylight. Very nice full controls, to handle even color/light correction of borders key. I don't know if keylight is avaliable for FCE. Maybe the only benefit inside FCE is rendering time. Real tests can talk a lot more. My vote goes for After Effects.
