Forcing a relink based on timecode

I wish there was a way to force a relink to a file that has the same timecode. (retranscoded AMA ready to go)

Are you trying to relink from a sequence? If so, try relink to selected.

Hi Michael,

Yes I am. I don't see the option "relink to selected"?

Thanks,

Highlight the clip or clips to which you want sequence to link to. Then highlight the sequence (they don't need to be in the same bins). Just select the sequence, right click, relink. In the dialog box, I believe the second radio button down is "relink to selected". Change settings as needed.

Thanks Michael. I guess it doesn't work for me since I'm trying to relink offline mixdowns to retranscoded individual clips with the same timecode.

Wait, didn't you warn me about this a few months ago! ;)

Mixdowns are evil.

Thanks again.

I may have... I think I remember know. Mixdowns are their own little islands... You could try some level 2 workaround stuff, like exporting those mixdowns as QT reference, bring it back in as though they were new sources, make an ALE and merge into that... then it would behave like a newly created master clip. But I would need to test my theory to be sure, but should work.

Even if the mixdowns are offline? One of my RAIDs corrupted tons of data so I had to reconnect to the original AMAs except for what I mixed down of course. Since I had to retranscode these interviews and the Mixdowns don't recognize timecode (even though it shows) I figured I may as well bite the bullet and go with plan A, which is to combine all the slices of interviews in a sequence with Auto Sequence (you taught me that).

If the media is offline, then no. Back to square one I'm afraid for those clips.
