In the past I was able to use XDCam transfer to create Pro Res files that I could import into FCPX. After updating my old laptop to El Capitan, that no longer works.
I can import the footage into FCPX with no problem, but I'm confused as to where my footage will live. I prefer to leave the footage on an External hard drive.
My question is this. If I save the BPAV folder on my external drive, then import everything into the FCPX Library, can I still leave everything in place on my external drive? This way I don't bloat the library.
