XDCam movs... do i need the XML file?

All our media is XDCam movs,

no backups of cards, so we'll backup the move (and hope they're all OK!)

along with each mov there's a corresponding XML file.
i'm assuming we don't need them anymore... correct?
i want to trash them all, but can move them elsewhere if needed.


thanks

Don't delete a damn thing. Those files take up VERY little space...like, what? 20kb? So why toss them? Keep them in case for some reason they are needed. Some cameras shoot XDCAM as QT files, and store metadata in those files. You might be dealing with someone who selectively archived a card.

Don't throw away anything, especially something that small.

hi, Shane

the main reason to get them out of the way is alleviate the problems they cause when we bring the folders onto FCP.
each one brings up messages which need to be clicked away,
and there are thousands of these.

there are NO CARDS left, only the Quicktimes.

Doesn't only one message pop up? Well, do what you want. I do suggest saving them, just somewhere else, just in case.

cool, thanks

ok just tested again:
dragging the folder into FCP= 3 clicks per file = 3000 clicks
Import folder = 1 click per import = 1 click if i import the enclosing folder

Yeah, I'd used to importing the folder.
