If you load ALL your media - then import an XML and do not select import media it will use ANY media that matches thats already in the MEDIA POOL to link to your xml timeline

If you load NO media prior to loading XML and select IMPORT media to media pool it will try and link to any media it can find and warn at the end of import what it cannot find.

One reason to not import is a offline proxy workflow.
IE you shoot RAW - Transcode to ProresProxy for the edit. Export an XML. Impoer XML to Resolve with DONT IMPORT selected. Then you load up the raw rushes and it links to those rather than the proresproxy.

There are loads of other options like force conforming and conform from folders.

You could have 2 folders in media pool. All the media imported from XML ProresProxy. and another folder in media pool you manually imported RAW into.

you can then conform from the RAW folder rather than the one containing Prores.


The ghost clips as you call them are clips that are in the timeline but have no media for them in the MEDIA POOL

you say
- however if I load the original clip in the mediepool (with the correct reel name) and change the attributes - it affect the clip that links to the xml-imported clip.

If you then load a clip that is used in the xml timeline loaded with DONT IMPORT into the media pool it will automatically link to that imported media.

REEL Names seem not to come across with a FCPX XML but I have never really had linking issues.
When in FCPX are the reel names in the metadata then ? If not then they won't be exported.
