I've got a 10 second sequence that contains an image that needs to change each time (a town name). My initial idea was to just relink the image to the new version each time I added the sequence, since it seems FCP makes unique copies of each sequence even within the same project.
This has worked most of the time, but twice now I've run into an issue where Final Cut remembers the link to multiple sources, and picks the wrong one to display for each instance, changing already finished cuts (in the same project; older projects seem to be unaffected)
Now I have a situation where I can't even force the image back to the version I want, because there doesn't seem to be a make offline option for clips in the timeline.
Is there a better way to make an editable template in FCP? I don't really understand the mystical ways of Final Cut sequences.
