Can I merge sequential clips on import?
on Jan 25, 2013 at 5:55:08 pm

I have 3 JVC GY-HM750U cameras and they a recording into approx 10 min clips if you record for long durations.
So if I record for 30 minutes I would have 3 consecutive clips or 6 for 60 minutes etc.. Usually this isn't that big of a deal but when we have 3 cameras running and we want to edit using multicam or multiclip editing it is kind of a pain when each angle is broken up into pieces. i.e. , 43750275_01, 43750275_02, 43750275_03. 43750275_04, 43750275_05, 43750275_06 etc......
It would be nice to have each of the Camera angles sequential files import as one continuous clip.
Then I would have 1 multi-cam clip and not 6.

I am still fairly new to FCP X so there may be something I am over looking..

Thanks for your help.

Randy

You can alway grab the clips, create a single compound clip from them, then use that for your edit.

[Randy Burleson] "It would be nice to have each of the Camera angles sequential files import as one continuous clip."

I do that with longer AVCHD files in ClipWrap before I bring footage to FCPX. There's an option in the ClipWrap FILE menu to "Open multiple as Spanned..."
