Re-Linking Media

Hello. Is there are way to re-link media in smoke 2013? My source media moved folders (on the same drive) and now most of my smoke clips and FX appear as checkerboards. I can easily find the clips in the MediaHub but I'm looking for a way to automatically re-link them (like FCP-7). I have a variety of "un-link" tools but no "re-link" tools. Any advice?

You can't relink sources, you can only relink sequences.
It's kind an oversight IMHO.

Reimport your sources and then you can add your libraries to the conform search location and your sequences will relink with the new sources.

Thank you Brian.

I actually fixed the problem by moving the media back to it's original location. Lesson learned :)

In the future it would certainly help to have a simple manual "re-link" tool for missing media which would allow you to navigate and click on the desired file. I'd take this "dumb, manual" solution over fancy auto-relinking any day. :)

Cheers
Alex
