[Mark Slocombe] "I have an updated fairly easy workflow solution - any thoughts? :

1. FCP X import Canon files from card > file names are Clip #1 etc
2. Go to imported files in FCP X library > Original Media
3. Use Better Rename to rename them ( and lose the hashtag if you want to process copies through eg Episode with BITC)
4. Back in FCP X, Trash the imported files in the FCP X event just created
5. Drag the newly renamed files into the event

Now file shave sensible descriptive names and clients using the BITC viewing copies (mp4s) will advise edit points using files with the same names as those in FCP X - just as before."

That sounds sensible. It really depends on what you need to do, and this method seems like it will work. Thinking further to disaster recovery, let's say you lose all of your re-imported and re-named clips. You would have to do all of this over again, and be able to get your Library back to where it was pre-disaster.

Would you be able to recreate your Library from scratch this way?
