Can't relink moved AMA clips
I cut an opening title sequence constructed of compressed exports of the full show. I knew I'd have to switch drives multiples time throughout this process for various not ideal reasons, so I put those files on the desktop so the project could survive even as drives switched around.
I've now had to also switch machines as well, and I copied all those files to a drive assuming I could relink at the other end on the other machine.
I now have sequences full of offline media and a bin with full of offline clips but seemingly no way to get anything back online.
In that past, it's been enough for me to simply make a new bin and AMA link the material I want relinked, and it would be detected that this media was the same and the offline media in my existing bins and sequences would come online of its own accord, however this time that isn't happening and I'm a bit stuck what to do.
Why can't I relink these files? They're not corrupted, I know where they are, I can successfully AMA link them, but I can't bring the existing master clips and by extension instances of those master clips that are used in sequences, online. I really don't want to manually write down the source tc in and out of every single instance of each of these clips used in each of many, many, timelines and re-lay the clips again with newly AMA linked versions. What is going on?
From your description, this should have worked
I would suggest link troubleshoot step 1... link to 1 file in a new bin, then find the original link for that file in the original bin location. Compare all the columns, especially, start time end time, duration, fps, reel name...something has to be different from one project to the next....one bin to the next...
