Hi guys, question : I'm in a catalog, I try the Find similar tool (using name), then open a windows with my similar files... ok I have a list, I realize someone have cloned lines, no problem. I try to erase line or write metadata but not working. How do I manage cloned files, this?
I recommend that you always leave this checked (unless for some reason that I could not understand, you need duplicates of an asset in a catalog, but hey, what do I know? It's your workflow!)
This makes the system ignore an asset that is already in the catalog. The problem that this prevents is if you are ingesting clips and then walk away or get distracted and forget if you've ingested a particular file or folder. If this is checked, CatDV will simply ignore the assets that are already there. If it is unchecked, CatDV will ADD THE ASSETS A SECOND TIME (Sorry to shout, but it makes me tense even typing that.)
Again, the thing that makes CatDV great is that you can do most anything you want with it. However, if you have a situation such as when an archive system is connected to CatDV and that system will fail a job that was previously submitted, you can see the issue.
Sorry to take this off track but that setting might be the thing that caused you to have duplicates in the first place.
Hi bryson, "Combine duplicates (same In & Out values.) was already check. I've made a test, take 10 videos in a new catalog, and re-import them over and over again, and it keep making lines video lines. But I won't SHOUT :) I use Tool/Find similar, on all open catalog based on name... my clip appears in an new windows. I select some and try to delete them in this windows... not working. I've check and i'm the Clip Owner, and anyway, i'm the Administrator so I can delete them anyway. I'll keep looking.
