Hey all,
I am a video photographer and editor.
I edit on Final Cut Pro on a Mac Pro running Snow Leopard. I shoot with a Sony XDCAM and upload the digital files to a networked external server, using XDCAM Transfer, then drag copies of the files to my work drive when im ready to edit. However, Im not seeing the files in my finder. I can see the files when I search using Spotlight, but when I tried to redrag my files, Finder tells me I cant update the files because they are Invisible.
How can I make the unseen, seen again?

QUOTE Thanks

Figured it out.
I cant import to my network drive then copy files to my work drive.
Must import direct to my work drive then from there, place whereever I want
QUOTE Thanks
