Hey, so I am trying to be really patient with FCP X (I've been using FCP 5 for years). . .
I have imported a ten minute piece that was completely edited and polished about ten years ago. Need to make a couple of minor tweaks. I was expecting the piece to come in as one self-contained file.
In my event browser, instead of having it look like one file (like you would have seen in earlier FCP imports), this has broken it down into clips and have resorted them beyond recognition.
I'm sorry, FCP, I don't want to re-edit the whole piece; I wanted to put the self-contained program into the timeline and make a couple of slight razor-bladed edits.
I have gone in and requested the files be sorted by import date (today), but they haven't moved. Two shots from the end of the program are first, then a clip from the beginning, then four from the middle. . .it's a mess.
What can I do? Should I have set some kind of preference before I imported?
