Importing media question
on Jul 27, 2017 at 10:18:39 pm

Hi, with the 10.3 upgrade, I noticed that when importing footage from my Canon XF300, say a clip is labeled AA4820,
there will be an identical clip labeled AA48201, basically adding a copy of the same clip with an extra numerical.
I've just been deleting them , but can someone explain what is happening.
thanks in advance.

Are you sure it's not part 2 of a long clip?

No, it's an exact dupe, yet sometimes it's broken up into smaller clips with ascending numbers on each one. The "good" clips do not have the extra end number.

I'm using a Raid drive. 2 drives in there, Mac OS Extended (Journaled). Never had this problem until 10.3 the previous versions of FCPX were fine with this drive

I'd suggest reinstalling the latest plugins for your camera.

Many thanks, I probably had an older version. Will try tomorrow.

This is how Canon XF names it's files on the card when it records. It sticks a 1 on the end for the first clip, if it's a long clip, then it splits it into multiple files 2, 3 and so on. When you use the Canon XF FCP X plug-in it eliminates that last number and combines all clips together into a single .mov. If you import the .mxf files without rewrapping that's exactly how it will come in.
