I am working with a bunch of 4k footage shot on an FS700. When working in FCPX, I can easily filter out all the unnecessary files and sub folders on this camera card (lots of sub folders for shots and an XML file with each) and auto-import just the .mov's. Is there a way to do this in Pr CC or do I need to go through each folder and point out the ProRes 4k file?

Thanks in advance.

Just drag the master folder into your bins. Premiere will ignore anything that isn't footage. At least, it does for the ridiculous MTS file structures of h.264 footage.

Yes, but it still imports all the sub folders.

For example in FCPX, I can tell it to not to make keyword collections (bins) from folders. The software indexes the folders, tosses out the XML files and just brings in the footage. Very efficient. Hoping that can be done in PrCC

The closest you can get, and it's not very close at all, is using Prelude to tag metadata and then send all that to Premiere. The few times I've tried to do this it has been very clunky to access the Prelude tags.

There is an interesting window view in Premiere called Window > Workspace > Metalogging.

The Prelude route sounds very clunky but thanks for the heads up. As far as the media browser it seems whenever there is a folder, Pr wants to make a bin. Feature request: "Ignore folders on import", if that doesn't exist already.

Try using the media browser panel to import.
