[Gordon Gurley] " I understand that "most" of these missing files or aliases are because I choose to NOT copy the media on import. But FCPX should know that and make copies anyway. It doesn't. It makes copies of aliases. That's not very smart."

I didn't know that you didn't have FCPX make copies. If you indicated that and I missed it, I'm sorry.

If you want it to do it's media magic (which is really smart) you should have it do the copies. What it means now, is that if you want it to work, you'll have to force it to copy all your media first then make the copy. To do this, select the event and choose Organize event.

I'm not sure - but I think if you do it with the duplicate event, and do this step, it'll make a copy there.

As to it being smart, if the latter works, you have to promise to come back and tell us that maybe it's smarter than you thought.
