None of the 3 files are in this folder?

Hi,

In attempting to relink after an upgrade. I find that the file names i'm looking for have had characters in their names changed so they aren't recognized. The changed characters are underscores _ instead of colons : and an added (id). How can I fix this?

Thanks,

Ty Ford

I’m not sure you can. That’s how FCPX handles file names if you choose to let it manage your media. If this is an upgrade from a really old version of FCPX (pre 10.2), updating libraries was a bit hit and miss as far as connecting media goes.

If it’s purely a naming issue, my thought would be to pull the correctly named original media out of the pre-upgrade library and have FCPX reconnect to those in whatever folder you put them in. After they’re connected you can consolidate them back into the main library if you want.
