XDCam clip names in FCPX
on Jun 29, 2012 at 12:31:42 am

I would like my imported clips in the finder to display the names I give them when logging (rather than "2012-06-24 09:52:34" in the event library and "2012-06-24 09_52_34 (id).mov" in the finder I would like them to say things like "Tom falls off"). The Title 1 & Title 2 fields in XDCAM Browser 2.1 don't seem to make the trip to FCPX. I do not want to be totally reliant on FCPX' keyword function to be able to find footage (& Apple just might throw the whole system away sometime in the future:).
The only way I've found to do this so far is to use the "XDCam Transfer" from FCP7 or to export 1 clip at a time from XDCAM Browser 2.1 using the 'import into fcp' button in the Preview pane.
Does anyone know a way using XDCAM Browser or FCPX import functions that will ingest my entire logged BPAV file and give the files proper names in the finder?
Many thanks.
