How do you know this is preventing the relink?
How could the original clip have changed in the finder?
Mac Pro, macbook pro, Imacs (i7); Canon 5D Mark III/70D, Panasonic AG-HPX170/AG-HPX250P, Canon HV40, Sony Z7U/VX2000/PD170; FCP 6 certified; FCP X write professionally for a variety of media; teach video production in L.A.
I should have copy/pasted the specific notice, but the error eluded to a difference in duration as the problem. Though rare, I have seen this happen before with FCP X and it boggles my mind how it happens. All I know is that between myself and another editor, I do all of my syncing in FCP X. The other editor sometimes get's their footage from assistant editor who syncs using PluralEyes. Now that shouldn't matter, being that we're using the same reels (folders of content). So when I get the other editor's event, library, or storyline project and trying and reconnect some things this happens.
I can' point definitively that what I described is the cause of this. Though I don't know what else to go to. It's so strange that I am getting events with media references that are one frame off from me pulling the same source in using FCP X.
