Audio Files from external recorders
I’m curious if anyone else has had this issue…
For years now, whenever I use the import function of FCP on audio files recorded using various field recorders (both Tascam and Zoom) the initial import does not work. They show up in the browser, but upon further inspection, they are still pointing to the SD Card from the field recorders not the storage location for the media.
I have to actually drag the files to the storage location the media is to live on, and then relink to those files. My most current attempt to “consolidate media” for a Proxy library I was planning on using at home this weekend, worked on all the media EXCEPT the d**n .wav files. I just looked inside my Library and they’re all aliases. I thought I did a proper test of the Proxy library after consolidating it, by ejecting the original storage location, opening the Proxy Library, and seeing if all the media was there. It appeared to be, but I just opened it up, and just the .wav files are aliases. Everything else consolidated the way I thought it should. What stupid thing am I doing? To paraphrase HAL, I know it’s human error, I just don’t know what error it is. Can someone help me not be so dumb?
