Relinking to files inside a fcpbundle
on Apr 2, 2014 at 8:08:00 pm

I just updated an older project in fcpx 10.1.1, and there are a few "missing file" clips that are referenced from other projects. When I try to relink them, I can't access the "innards" of the fcpbundle that holds them. Will fcpx automagically relink if I just to do a finder copy from the referenced fcpbundle to the current project fcpbundle?

The consensus is to put the "original media" folder in your dock or sidebar from the original library.

This will give you finder access to the files.

FCPX will copy the footage in to the new library automatically.

Nice. That works! Thanks, Jeremy.

This sounds quite easy, but I don't get it. Probably a language thing...
Can you explain me how this works?

thank you,

Right click the library.

Choose "Show Package Contents"

Find the name of the Event that is storing your media, and find the "Original Media" folder within it.

Drag that original media folder to the sidebar, or make an alias of the folder and place it on your desktop.

You now have a direct link to that folder.

Thank you Jeremy,

I get it now. This week I found out that only selecting the library icon in the Relink window is enough.
Then FCP X simply finds the file in the Original Media folder en relinking is a click away.

I hope this a recent change in FCP X, because otherwise I've lost a lot of time finding a workaround...

anyway, I'm liking this application more every day.

Relinking has come a very long way in FCPX! It's a very welcome addition.
