If you had already transcoded the bulk media, there was no need to transcode the sequence. A simple relink operation could have pointed the sequence to the newly transcoded media.

If you look at your Avid MediaFiles/mxf/1 folder, and sort by date modified, you should be able to figure out where the duplicates are. If you are nervous about deleting media, simply take the newest version of each clip and move it up 1 level into a new folder.

Avid will rebuild its database, and you should see the original transcodes online, and the second batch online. From there you can begin the relink procedure.

If you feel you have mistakenly moved a couple of incorrect files out of the mxf/1 folder, simply locate them (they aren't that hard to identify by their name, once you start looking closely at the naming convention) and move them back in. Again, Avid will rebuild the database.

Your next question will be on the relinking procedure, but that is another topic :)
