    I was told that this couldn’t happen. Well, maybe that it could, but that you’d have to shoot with two HVX cameras simultaneously for a couple years before this happened.

    I have two clips with identical filenames. These were shot with the same camera over a three day period. 808 clips total…two have the same names. 00029X and 0012TK. Both have different footage, and are at least from different days.

    Jan?

    Are these on the P2 cards themselves or is this after a P2 import? Sometimes I find that FCP will combine clips that are spanned into the same name, even though they have different names on the P2 cards.

    Both locations. Since they retain their name when I import.

    They were shot on different days and therefore contain different footage and aren’t spanned. All of my spanned footage have two different names.

    Hopefully Jan can chime in and clear this up. I am sorry you have been having so many P2 troubles lately.

    I had the sampe situtation. Major problems because of it. Same named master clips, they were not spanned and shot a month apart. It creates some serious havoc in my editting and organization.

    Yeah, I thought that it would never have the same clip name. But that isn’t the truth. This is a problem when your consolidating or moving media.
