Importing only the video files in FCP 7?

Hello guys.

I shoot with PMW-200 but i can't find a way (in software) to only import the videos and not the folders, because that way is very time consuming when editing.

In this case i have more than 200 videos inside folders that the cam creates but i would like to know if is there any way to import only the videos.

Thanks.

Sony Content Browser. The PROPER way of importing PMW200 footage.

THere's an XDCAM plugin for FCP 7 import (Log & Transfer) that imports them into the Capture Scratch folder

Spend the $20 for Content Browser. FAR more elegant than Log & Transfer, especially with PMW-200 files... more so if shooting 50mbps like I am.

In fact, your PMW200 SHOULD have shipped with a newsprint insert with a serial number to authorize Content Browser.
