PPro CS6 Re-Linking
October 21, 2012 04:38PM
This was surprisingly better than I expected. I had a batch of footage (about 20 or so) that I forgot to re-name yesterday, and today, I had another batch with identically named files. So I pulled out R-Name and re-named the footage to include date of shoot. Because I also had a project with the same media in FCP (I'm using both apps for this project), I expected to manually re-link all 20 files in both apps, and that was the case in FCP. But surprisingly, PPro managed to re-link to all the footage with one click. I'm assuming Premiere linked to the files in the folder based on timecode, and maybe tape name, but I can't find any documentation on this. So yea, just throwing it out here.

Yeah it does relink to media in the same place, but you need to really know where that media is. Which is only fair, it's just the stupid naming by the cameras, and multiple people working on multiple workstations on multiple NASs (NASi?) that makes it harder.

The surprise was that it reconnected even though the file names are different. Would be nice if you can set the rules for this.

Oh, so you're saying you changed the names, then reconnected the first clip and it figured out the rest? I've not tried that one!

Yup! Got every clip right too, so I guess it used tape names and time code. Although I'm wondering what happens if I send it to a different folder where the tape names are the same.
