Hi Ralph,

FeynArts and FeynCalc are two different projects developed by different
people, so there is no 100% comptability between the two. For practical
purposes one always needs to convert the FeynArts output into something
FeynCalc can work with.

Have a look at the examples, for more details

Since you are using FeynCalc 8.2, you don't need to apply to
FCPrepareFAAmp and specify Transversality->True in PolarizationVector.
Those are things that came with FeynCalc 9 that is still under devlopment.

Also, have a look at the corresponding wiki page:
