Log notes FCP to CATDV

Am I able to make adjustments of a clip description in FCP and then wanted update this description in Catdv. Is there a way that I can sync up the clips & their descriptions? currently, when i import the altered FCP clips into Catdv it simply doubles-up the clip instead of sync the clips and simply altering the description. It will be really time consuming to then delete the older described clips. I hope there is a way.

Any help much appreciated

Laura

This is not possible.

There is not an API into FCP that allows it to see that the clips delivered are the same, so it cant know whether or not to update.

If FCP could do this, we could have project sharing like Avid. (hm..)

In our workflows, once a clip is delivered to edit, we tend to consider them locked, just like editing with 2 editors in FCP on copies of clips. One cannot sync with the other.

That's not quite true, you can right click on a FCP project in the tree and choose Update Catalog, which will look at the clip id (fcp uuid, catdv clip ref) to see if that clip already exists in CatDV and if so updates it rather than reimports it as a new clip. It doesn't actively keep track of individual changes though, so if you import a clip from FCP then modify it in CatDV then update it from FCP, you'll get the latest values from Final Cut again, overwriting anything you changed within CatDV.

Thanks Rolf, I've never done that one. That's a good one to play with.
