Michael Paulrelink ALL offline media - how?
by on Jul 3, 2015 at 9:37:09 am

So I've opened Premiere and I guess my hard drive wasn't plugged in. Now all my media is offline. I have the hard drive plugged in now - everything is where it always used to be but Premiere doesn't automatically reconnect it.
Now my problem is: I have to click on EACH SINGLE CLIP separately and click on RELINK FOOTAGE. It's all there. Premiere finds it and relinks it but I have to do that with 500 clips. Oh how much fun...
Premiere doesn't tell me: HEY THE FILES THAT ARE ALL WHERE THEY ALWAYS USED TO BE ARE OFFLINE
How do I get this window? How do I tell Premiere to please relink EVERY FILE. I would have assumed that if I relink ONE file it would automatically figure the rest out by itself. I am insanely annoyed by this (as you can probably tell). So THANKS A MILLION for your help

Oh yeh I have that checkbox that says: Automatically relink all other files as well (or whatever it says in English- it's the second check box for me at least) checked and it doesn't work.
Is there a way to force that "offline media" dialog at start up because that always used to do the trick while once I am in Premiere and stuff is offline it is offline and it will only select that ONE clip that I am relinking by hand...

Select all clips in the Project Window then click on Link Media.
See if that will help.
What kind of files are they?

yeh that did the trick. its just annoying that i have created a lot of folders because i like to keep things organized. so now i have to go into each folder separately but its works. better than having to click on each file by hand. by the way it's mixed footage: video in all formats, audio and also PSD files.

Is this a "BUG" in CC2015? I can only re-link one at a time now. It used to work just fine!

Problem solved! Not a bug. The media I was re-linking to was .mxf media. The original files were mov files from FCP. By unchecking the "file extension" dialogue box in the "Match File Properties" section, I can now re-link to more than one file at a time.

You can have it good, fast or inexpensive. Pick two.
