I finished an offline edit, but the hard drive containing the 4k footage I linked into Avid malfunctioned. I have a backup hard drive with all the 4k footage, but I can't figure out how to relink to it. At the top of the relink window I selected this particular drive but it didn't work. Can someone, for the love of God, please help me. Thank you in advance!
Just treat it like new footage you want to link to.
Create a bin,go to the drive, depending on folder structure you might have to go a folder level or two down, and use media browser to start creating your links. It should be the same process s your original linking from your original drive.
Once complete you should see your original links are now back online. (You kept your original links right?)
Yes I still have the original linked files in my bins. I'm sorry I think I need it broken down to me like I'm a five year-old. The process I was doing was right-clicking on the sequence and then clicking "relink". What exactly is the way you're saying to do it?
