    3.) Select all of those files once they list out
    4.) Drag said files into the "_____ ProRes"
    5.) Breathe a sigh of relief.

    When you want to reconnect them later to your R3Ds, just direct the reconnect to the original folders and you'll be set :)
    Great explanation, thank you.
    Just one little question: each .mov file is in a separate folder with each r3d file, how do you search for all those .mov inside the main/top folder?
    I wish someone did a quick video tutorial...:-)

    Depends on which version of MacOS you have but generally when you do a search in Finder you have the option to search the entire Macintosh HD or the specific folder you are currently in. The option is below the Toolbar and only appears after you have done a search. I'm not on my Mac otherwise I'd show you a screenshot.

    Thanks, I'll check that!

    I wonder if there is a way to import all the folders as is, put the prores files into a separate event, edit, and then when doing online direct fcpx to the footage from the event with the r3d files?

    To my knowledge there isn't a way to link them like you have in Premiere. FCPX really wants you to generate proxies within the application. Works great for short pieces, not necessarily for longer ones though...

    Thanks for the info. I still wish RED make a new video about the workflow.

    Yes I agree with Oron.

    It would be good to have clear instructions for in-camera Pro-Res working through FCPX that then relink to R3D.

    My guess is that the next version of FCPX is going to address a this.
