Although it transfers the footage to MOV's, they should still have the same file name. The exported EDL from FCP should correspond to the file names of your raw footage. Of course, if you do this, it becomes VERY important that you always generate unique file names in the camera. We've come up with a few practices that do this, based on particular camera and the date.
You are just wanting to know which shots your editor is referencing, correct?
Beyond that, there are a couple of different MAM systems that allow that type of two way communication. We are using a combination of CatDV and Calibrated Software to do that now. It works fairly well.

i'm the editor.
all of this is too new for us... i don't get it !!!
the new names clips are generated by XDCAM transfer
but the realisator is at his home so the .MOV created on his side... i don't have them so maybe what we're trying to do is impossible.
basically what we want is:
1-the realisator is selecting sections of clips with comments ans give names to clips that are not numbers (log list)
2-send me something (log lost, i don't know) ?
3-i relink something
maybe he needs to come home with the FCP project created with the XDCAM transfer log ?
One problem I have with XDCAM Transfer is that you lose all subclip and title information when you "remove" a source folder from the list on the left-hand side of the screen.
We use one central machine to log and rewrap footage for our multiple Mac edit stations, so using FCP to log and transfer isn't an option for us. What would be nice is to be able to insure that the information generated in XDCAM Transfer would somehow be stored in the BPAV folder somewhere so that it can be retrieved the next time the folder is added as a source in XDCAM Transfer.
