Re: FCP User, Exploring PrP: Workflow for XDCamEX capture question

That's not quite what I meant. Have Premiere users found it best to just copy over the whole BPAV folder to your media drive? If you do that, is there a good way to preview a clip before you import? And once your project is done and the media is deleted, what is your workflow for bringing it back on-line if you need it again.

My current workflow in FCP works very well. I backup the camera's card to an optical disc. I use Log and Transfer to preview and import only the clips I need - not importing bad takes. I can even specify to only import audio if I have voice tracks and don't need the video. Once my edit is done, I can delete the media. If I need to re-link the media files - I just select the sequence, choose batch capture and FCP tells me to insert my backup disc and it only re-imports the clips needed for the selected sequence.

So here's the abbreviated version of my question:

Does Premiere have a way to:

1. Preview clips before importing into a project?

2. Select In and Out points before importing the entire clip? Or only import audio from a clip?

3. Batch re-import only the media necessary for a specific sequence?
