Missing or unlinked source files?
on Aug 26, 2007 at 10:31:50 pm

Hello here!

I have some updates to add to a program I created a couple of years ago. The files, including the project media, was placed on an external drive until today. I've moved it all back into place on my hard drive in fashion I usually do and opened the program only to find that the media will not relink. I searched the cow and followed the threads for relinking, checking the media location, etc. Yes, I can see the thumbnail files in the bins, I can see the names on the timeline. My audio files are all linked and OK.

I finally decided I needed to manually link all the files, so have done so by replace dragging the same named bin files into the timeline. The timeline shows linked video material (not italicized). I thought it was all done, seemed to be fine. I saved and shut down for a bit.

Now the force render still can't find the source files. I can play the timeline and see in the M100 record monitor, but not in the source monitor. I can play a clip from the edit studio and see in both the source and record monitors.

Anyone have some ideas for me to get this pulled back together? Thanks.

Hi Joan,

Your signature line and use of "Force Render" lead me to believe you want the Media 100i forum and not the 844/X one.

I'll add one suggestion for you though - if you're working on an external portable drive, move all the footage off onto an internal one. Delete the current folders in Media Location and add the newly copied one.

Good luck,
Ben
