Generations and Family Tree Maker are completely different programs. You will have to do a gedcom export from your Generations program and then do a gedcom import into Family Tree Maker, as the latter does not have the ability to read the Generations files directly.

Gedcom implementations vary and Gary Bonham had a great conversion utility called Gedcom Explorer. His site appears to be off the web for good (sigh...) but there are copies of Gedcom Explorer available at various download sites (do a search on Google). It can be used for 30 days before registration is required (and which is simply not available any longeras far as I know - anyone know different?).
