Workflow tip for FCP

Made a discovery today that might help other FCP editors:

When shooting and you get a good take, use the shot mark feature. I have it mapped on a function button.

When you open the clips in XDCAM transfer, clips with a shot mark will have a small EM in the lower-left corner.

Be sure to set your preferences to 'write FCP XML file' in the import tab of XDCAM TRANSFER preferences.

Select all the clips with the EM in the corner and mark them as GOOD.

Then you can select all the clips and hit import.

Now navigate to the folder where you imported the clips and drag ONLY the XML file to your bin in FCP. Your GOOD markers will show up in the bin in the GOOD column.

Of course you could filter out only the good takes and only import those but this way you still have imported your alternate takes if you need them and they're separated.

Actually, you don't even need to mark them as good since clips with the markers will import with a drop down arrow for the shot mark. Easy to pick them out that way, too.

Well... when you import lots of clips, it seems to suffer from the multiple clip import bug talked about in this thread:

If anyone can figure out a good way to mark clips to keep in the field, I would appreciate it.
