Missing Media Link
on Aug 7, 2019 at 6:07:58 pm

I am making a short film on my MacBook Air. For whatever reason, the missing media link message has appeared. I imported all of my videos from Apple Photos. However, when I look through the Missing Media Browser, I cant find the videos anywhere. I have searched everywhere. Even when I managed to find apple photos through applications, it cannot be opened, and there are “no files found” when I go to locate the files. How can I get these files back without restarting?

Did this just happen out of the blue or is it something you just imported?
I know when premiere stopped supporting a certain codec last year a lot of my GoPro stuff just disappeared like that. I had to convert it.

I had imported a downloaded video. But that is something I had already done multiple times in the project.

Try converting it to a different format you know works and just replace it

Doesn't Apple Photos create one library file that contains all your photo/video files? I would try getting the files you want to edit with out of there and onto a drive in a regular folder structure so PPro can locate them to relink.

+1 on Todd's recommendation. Apple Photos is designed for consumer use and hides a lot of the folder structure from the user. I would advise putting all your project media (photos, videos, music) in a single folder for that project, along with the Premiere project file. I use a template folder which I duplicate and rename before the start of every project:
