it's not really the name of the clip
But it IS part of the file name, which is what PP cares about.
I understand that a red-unaware program would just use the file name as the clip name - but Premiere is quite red-aware and should, I would think, do as well as AfterEffects in this case.
Two different engineering teams.
But from what I'm seeing, AE treats the clips the same as PP does.
Ah - my mistake about AE - it's the Automatic Duck Pro Import AE 5 plugin that's smart about importing the FCP XML and has an option “Replace proxy footage with .R3D files.” The plugin understands that it needs to replace .MOV with .R3D and tack an _001 onto the end of the FCP-supplied filename in order to arrive at what both AE and Premiere will accept.
Thing is, Premiere is explicitly trying to interface with FCP's XML - as opposed to some non-program-specific XML format - so I'd think it would handle this case which always arises in the RED/FCP/Adobe workflow if you're transcoding using RED's rcx program.
