Premiere 2018 importing ALIAS
on Jan 11, 2018 at 5:12:12 pm

I open old XML files from FinalCutpro 7 in Premiere.
As the Media is in various different Drives, I crated 2 folders for Video (MOV, and Stills) and AUDIO with (WAV and other sound files).
Premiere 2018 gives a generic error which prevents locating the files although their ALIAS appears in the window.
Is there a system to allow Premiere to open the original media from it's ALIAS or i need to locate the original Media in order to import it in the project?
Any suggestions to read ALIAS for media in Premiere?
Thanks a lot

It's unclear whether you put aliases or actual media into these new folders. I'd put actual media into them, and if I needed more storage, I'd get it.

Storage is cheap. Farting around trying to use aliases isn't.
