I am making a short documentary in FCP. After logging the footage into FCP 6 all clips were in the order that I filmed them. But than I renamed the clips, and the sort order is changed. With the logging and capturing of SD (mini DV) materiaal I always could sort in the original way I recorded it.
But I found the solution: when you open the bin in which you put the clips, and you look at one of the most right columns, there is a column with the name 'Last modified'. THAT is the logging date and time. You CAN move this column more to the right if you want. I added a screendump.
Maybe this info was usefull to you.
