[Joe Marler] "Relinking in FCPX is both superb and terrible. Relink of regular media files on a single drive volume is superb - in fact it's fully automatic."

Depends on the format. R3d to mov? No prob.

Mov to mp4? Nope. Mxf to mov? Nope. Mxf to mp4? Nope. Mp4 to mxf? Nope. Mov to mxf? Nope.

Try it. Take an mxf file, make any file format you want with matching audio, and try to relink it, automatically. It won’t happen. But if you select the file one by one, fcpx will relink. So for a project with several thousand files, linking one by one is agony and far from automatic. Since fcpx will relink one by one and not automatically, this seems like a bug.

And as far as your sym link example, that works on some storage and not others.l, and yes it seems unique to fcpx.

Premiere allows you to search by other criteria, including media start and allows you to deselect criteria like file name and extension.

Fcpx is still much faster to work in though. I share all of Tom’s gripes with premiere, except format relinking. Premiere is better at this.
