FCP's media management is very weak...unless the media the clips want to link to start exactly when the clips do, end when they do, and have the same timecode and reel number, they won't connect. FCP cannot connect a bunch of smaller clips that are part of a larger clip. Avid can, FCP cannot.
Well, it can with the help of FCP Reconnect. I did that myself! Works.
I'm not entirely sure we're talking about the same thing. I hope that we do, but I'm not 100% positive.
Are you saying that if we use the program you linked to, FCP will understand that both timelines (both the one with all the media and the other timeline) are using the exact same media, and Automatic Duck will export an AAF (a sequence) that I can import to a bin in the AVID project I have all the media in, and that imported sequence will refer to the already existing master clips?
