Prior to importing the XML files into Final Cut Pro, ensure that:
You have exported XML file whilst the drive is in your SHOGUN CONNECT
You have connected your Master Caddy Docking Station and inserted your media into the Dock
You are using an operating system that supports ExFAT
Your QuickTime version is up to date
Final Cut Pro has been updated to the latest version
There are 2 ways to import the XML file:
Directly from the docked hard drive
Manually into Final Cut Pro
Open the Finder
Select the drive (in this example it is EXCVIDEO)
Double-click the unitname.FCPXML file
This will open Final Cut Pro and import the .xml file
Final Cut Pro will make an event of the disk, name and reference all the footage in that event.
You will notice that on the clips you have added Smart Tags too, with Green and Red indicating Favorite and Reject. You can sort these by using the pull-down menu to show favorites. This will show all the individual favorites as separate clips in the Event Viewer.
Open Final Cut Pro
Create a New Project (or you can use an existing project). In this example it is called XML Import
Select File> Import> XML
Select the SHOGUN CONNECT drive under Devices
Choose the unitname.FCPXML, select Import
The XML will import
Viewing tags in Final Cut Pro
Once you have imported the XML you can expand the clip to see the Favorite, Reject and other various tags.
You can also filter the view to only see specific tags e.g.. favorite, etc.
