I suspect this has been covered before but I still can't figure this out.
Very large project (10TB) shot almost entirely on the FS7. The camera cards were copied by the DIT to folders named "Card One", Card Two, etc. The "Card" folder had the XDROOT folder inside of it.
When I set up a brand new library, and import the top level folder "Card One" the files are imported but files are TRANSCODED inside the library as XAVC-Intra. They are NOT "left in place" despite that being chosen upon import.
IS this how its supposed to work? Obviously, this is challenge when dealing with 10TB of footage, leaving me with 20 TB of footage after import.
If I understand it correctly, this is the default behavior when you "peek" and choose clips from within the XDROOT folder, but I'm selecting the top level folder and it is still transcoding.
All the latest pro video apps and FCPX running on Sierra. Thanks for any insight.
