Swapping filenames in Show Notes X

I have FCPX XML from QTAKE. XML points to ProRes Proxy files generated by QTAKE.

Also there is XAVC-I, wrapped in MXF, from Sony FS7 with matching timecode.

So here is the workflow I want to test:

  • Export FCPX XML from QTAKE.

  • Open XML in Show Notes X.

  • Replace clip and file names from QTAKE with originals from FS7. I’ve managed to develop bash script (using ffprobe), which matches FS7 files to QTAKE files.

  • Open newly created XML in FCPX. Relink offline media to FS7 files and import FS7 files, which weren’t capture by QTAKE. Import audio from field recorder. Export XML.

  • Process XML through Sync-N-Link and get fully prepared dailies.

The big question if Show Notes X is capable of relinking clips (not breaking XML) with different names and extension assuming audio configuration is same?

Shot Notes X will have no affect on your ability to relink clips your clips. SNX doesn't update or modify the URL to the file that is stored in FCPXML. You shouldn't have any issues with your workflow.

If you do have an issue let me know I can take a look.
