So im trying to edit this musicvideo with 40 tracks in multicam, the prores 422hq files do not play nice with multicam so ive made low res (422proxy) with the same filenames in other folder to try and get better performance out of multicam,
Although i move high res files to other folder on same disk, final cut knows and automatically reconnects,
only when i move to other disk im able to reconnect to low res files,
Can i get around this in some way ? not having to move the files to another disk or how would one go about reconnecting otherwise ?
You don't have to move the folder to another disk, you just need to set the path to the new files. Here's how: Highlight the clips in the Browser, then right-click and select "Make offline...". You will be given three choices, but make sure you select "Leave Them on the Disk". This will take the clips offline, but not delete them. Now all your clips in the browser will have a red line through them to indicate they are off-line. Highlight them all and right-click, this time selecting "Reconnect media...". Navigate to your folder with the low-rez clips and reconnect. This will create a new path to the files which Final Cut will remember until you set the path back to the hi-rez files, which you do using the same process.
