Default How to create an Import Session?

Hi everyone,

We start to work on a film with several reconforms planned, different editors, and different edit suites with different PT versions. The Production sound is recorded with 3 different devices (Mostly Cantar and Sound Devices).

My questions: The AAF Import: We are planning to make on big import session for every editor to create unique file ideas. There was problems in the past where there was wrong referencing in the clips. Do you guys usually import the production sound via "link to" to create unique ID's or "copy in" to avoid Unique file ID problems ? It's 900 GB of production sound... Same goes for the mxf files import from MC?
Is it best to create an assembly of the production sound via EDL's and Ediload ? That's what I usually do, but time consuming.
The cantar rushes have 3 different folders for each shooting day. One with mono files (typical cantar) and two with polywav versions of each take per scene.
I would use the polywav folders, since I use these in Soundminer as well for a better view. Does this make sense? The Picture editors edited with everything all over the place - thanks for you help.
