Guys, please bear with me on this one;

I'm working with a client who has a fair bit of material, which he intends on importing onto an external HD using Imovie 11 and then naming, sorting and organising for me prior to me editing the footage on FCP 7.

Will this be possible?

Or would it be better if I could somehow import all the footage using my FCP 7 and passing the HD to him to name and organise on his iMovie 11?

Hi,
I recently did the first point on my Mac. I used imovie'11 and brought all my videos to an external drive (I use a Canon HV20 - tapes) and thus wanted everything somewhere electronically. Everything is imported as the date period of that type (or whatever event if it's from the iphone 4s).

I then import the videos to FCP X to do my family video (to which the files are stored on my mac harddrive). This way, the originals are unscathed and I can mess with whatever I imported in.

Thanks mate.

So, did you actually move the video files into folders and rename the folders?

And then took those folders, with the files within, to FCP and edited on there?
