FCPX Changing Original Media Filenames

Is there a way to stop FCPX changing the filenames of ingested media?

If I import any clips, currently it will change the names of them to something like;
2013-10-29 18_40_54 (id)

If I'm working with 7D material, for example, I would rather retain the original MVI_#### filenames. Obviously there will always be the original card masters to go back to if needed, but it would be better if the filenames in my events/projects correlate exactly with the media from the camera throughout the process (in case it's ever necessary to refer back to the original files).


Thanks in advance,
Adam

You can do this through the "apply custom name" function. I don't have time to explain this now but look it up in the docs. I believe they did a show about this on Macbreak Studio also.

The irony is, now that I've finally (mostly) gotten my head around FCPX's media managing, it's likely going to change next month with 10.1 or whatever it will be called. The iMovie media managing makes all this so much easier.
