I'm creating timelapse videos with FCPX, and the complete pain in the **** is importing the photos themselves. The "Import Media" dialogue box is strange, and attempts to find all photographs (and media) in all subdirectories, which takes it forever. My photos are in a directory that I know, but when I go to Pictures/Photos/whatever the import dialogue box insists on searching for and analysing all the photos in the Pictures directory, which is tens of thousands. Why would it do this? Can I stop it doing this? At the moment if I try to import a few photos from a directory which is a child of a very large tree it takes forever (say several minutes) to list the files, select them, and then import them. This is all on SSD, goodness knows how long it would take with a hard drive. Not too doggy slow computer, rMBP 2.6 with 16Gb RAM and nothing else running. Is there any other way of doing this, or making it act like a sensible file selection dialogue?
