Hi all, and Fred, Anton in particular maybe...

Any idea why my 'leave files in place' option is greyed out and cannot be clicked?

I just shot my first footage with an FS7 and have copied the whole XDROOT directory from the card to an external drive. I would like to leave the files in place on the external drive. They're too large to ingest to the internal hard drive, which is where I always keep my Library files.

Anyone know why I'm unable to choose 'leave files in place'? Or should I just create my FCP library file on the external drive. But even then I would still have to copy to Library and be forced to duplicate them unnecessarily.

Curiously, when I take the 'clip' folder with the mxf files out of the original card directory, the 'leave files in place' option becomes available on FCP import, but something goes weird with the levels: they do not display the slog image, but something overexposed and nasty-looking.

Excuse all my non-technical descriptions... first post! Tips appreciated.
