Hi Tory,

THIS ONLY WORKS IF THE REPLACEMENT FILE NAMES ARE EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE ORIGINALS i.e they are a re-export out of Resolve (or such) with the same names.

I made sure that all of the mxf's for those dailies were in their own Avid MediaFiles folder. Do this BEFORE you quit out of Avid and use the Media Tool to move them to their own folder if they are mixed in with other footage that you don't want to replace.

I quit out of AVID and then did the following:
I copied them to an NG folder that I created outside of the MXF file structure for safety, and deleted them from their original folder.
Then I copied all of the NEW, replacement MXFs to the ORIGINAL folder that had had the "bad" files in them.

I trashed the media database.....and when I relaunched Avid.....voila.....everything linked up to the original master clips inside of Avid. I think there may have been a couple of files that I had to relink manually.

Let me know if this works for you.....and good luck :)
