I'm attempting to open a project on another computer but when the "link media" window opens, I have to link each individual file separately. I have hundreds of files and need a shortcut. I've done this in the past and it always links all the media automatically. I have the "link all other files" box checked, so that's not the issue. And it won't let me highlight all of the files when locating them. Any suggestions?
Hard to tell, there could be several things, but here's what I've experienced in the past.
Premiere needs both the file name and the location to be the same as it was when first imported. Did you use a process or program to change the file names as a batch? Is the file structure the same as it was when first imported?
Of course there may be many other reasons this isn't working, but in my experience, if the names and file structure is the same (or similar enough for Premiere to "fix" it), you should be good.
Not sure if it helps, but something to also look into. Good luck.
