    I thought this might be a good thread for those of us trying to improve our editing workflows.

    What's your video and still workflow? I'm still figuring mine out. So far, I do the following:

    Create new folder on external HD with the filming date
    Create sub-folders for Raw Footage, Raw Photos, and Edited Photos
    Copy files from SD to external HD
    Open Lightroom and import photos, keeping them in their location
    Edit photos
    Export JPGs to Edited Photos folder

    Video (if an edited product is desired/needed)
    Open FCPX and create a new project and event
    Edit footage
    Export to external HD

    If no final video project is desired or needed, I'll review all of the day's footage and delete anything I think I won't use in the future.

    What do you do?

    Nothing as neat as you unfortunately.

    I know a have too, these 2tb drives can make you lazy.
    Rainy day work but I live in the wrong place for rain.
    They are dumped to directories within a main one, all my production play in in the main root of the main one.

    Thanks for the ideas...
    Hope all is well on your side of the ball.
