In a nutshell, my issue is that I need to reload footage for completed sequences. I know what reel is associated with each clip, yet when I originally loaded the tapes, I selected capture now at random points on the tapes prior to the footage I wanted. Now, when I reload I get the prompt:
“Some attributes of one or more of the files you have chosen do not match the attributes of the original. This may cause problems within the sequences that are dependent on them. The attributes that differed are as follows:
- Media Start and End"
So, it seems as if I have to start the load (and end it) at the exact same timecode this time as I did the first time. Yes? Is there a way to do that?
The problem is that you likely disabled the timecode break warning and got FCP to capture at points along the tape that do not have enough preroll time to catch the in-point of some of your clips in advance of those timecode breaks. There's no easy fix for that that I know of.

Not necessarily true, David. I recapture old projects on a semi-regular basis (usually 3 year old commercials that get resurrected for a re-vamp), and have never disabled any of those warnings, or changed my pre-roll settings, and still get that particular message on occasion. I don't know what causes it, but when I go ahead with the reconnect, everything *seems* to be in order.
Thanks guys! I really appreciate your help. I can capture the footage, but when I proceed after the warning, it doesn't match up. Maybe I'll try again with a different set of tapes on another part of the project.
