If you set up a file structure on the Finder level...on the computer, not in FCP...that matches what you have in FCP, and then add a file ONLY to the folder on the desktop...finder...level, it does NOT go into FCP automatically. No, you need to import from there into FCP as well. Just drag and drop it into the bin you want.

The FCP project doesn't automatically update when you add files on the Finder level. It doesn't work that way. And, if you add it to FCP into the Browser file structure, the file will go into FCP, but will NOT go into the file structure that you made on the desktop. FCP just points to where it is when you imported. You need to put it where you want it first, then import into FCP.
