It seems that the easiest way to obtain keywords is to sort clips into folders with a lable on each before emporting them into FCPX.  Is there a way to move clips from the camcorder onto the computer other than importing them into a project in FCPX?   The only thing I seem to be able to do with the clips I shoot is to import them into a project.  Then I have to go about naming each clip.

    What kind of a camera?


    If it records to cards, you can use a card reader and copy to your computer. Create folders for different categories of clips, audio, stills, etc. in the Finder. Import as keyword colections.

    It's a Canon Vixia HFR21 with an internal memory and slots for two cards, which I have never used but I guess I will now.  Thanks.
