I copied my FCP project file along with the videos in the capture scratch to an external hard drive.
When I opened my FCP project it showed videos were offline. When I went to reconnect to the original video file, the video file had been changed with different footage. The orginal footage is missing, though the name of the clip is the same. It appears that it had been copied over with other footage from another clip I have. Not sure why this is happening, don't know how to get my original footage back on the clip it was on. For example Clip #80 know has the same footage that Clip #40 has.
I'm using FCP 7. I had saved everything to a folder on my desktop when capturing the clips from my SD card.
Everything was fine until I moved it to an external hard drive. That's when videos were showing up offline and the original videos captured wouldn't play the original footage but something else within the same group of videos that in the same project. They are all numbered sequentially, maybe the "#" character is throwing things off.
