Due to a power failure to one of my Sony EX cameras, the auto file numbering update went a bit wrong and I now have 6 video pairs of video clips with the same file name. If I import these into Premiere CS6 will I have any trouble with the wrong clip being used? Or should I rename each clip folder and the included files?
Try it and see. You can always undo the import and try something else.
Make sure they are in separate folders on your local drive and bring them into your project in a separate bin.
Wont be an issue.
AVCHD for example always creates same filenames one each sd card and needs to be managed this way.
eg . Local drive / Rushes Card 1, Local drive / Rushes Card 2,, Local drive / Rushes Card 3...
I create a Project Bin to match..
Needs a little bit of organising andf managing if exporting an edl though.
