    Relinking a sequence

    Hi, I edited a trailer a few weeks ago, using one large 106gb pro res hq file.  I ama'd then transcoded the file.  After thinking the job was done and dusted ( the producer only wanted the trailer for web), she's come back to me and asked me to give a post house a pro res export so they can do a DCP.

     

    I have dumped the footage from my system, and so I need to link my sequence to the original file.  It's only 50sec duration.  I have tried but am probably missing an obvious and vital step.  This is the first time I have done this.

     

    Thank you!

    Is the linked file online?

    OPEN the bin with the linked file.  CLOSE the bin with the transcoded or consolidated file.

    SELECT the linked clip.

    Right-click your sequence, RELINK... and use "selected items in ALL open bins".

    It should work.

    Re: Relinking a sequence

    Hello, thanks for your reply, I pulled the original file back onto my raid5, from the drive I originallywas originally given.  (That I first ama'd and transcoded from).  I'm not exactly wanting to relink, in that case, right?  I guess I want to do a conform of my sequence.  Is that possible?  I should be able to link my sequence to that original file?  15 years ago when I used to do this stuff I would've captured my sequence....

    Re: Relinking a sequence

    I should've consolidated before dumping the media files?  I will find tutorials and figure this out.

     Cheers :))

    Re: Relinking a sequence

    If you relink the original AMA and then either Transcode or Consolidate (whichever you orignally did) it should relink.  Since this is from one long clip, that is how I would attempt this.

    Re: Relinking a sequence

    I tried that a few times and it reloads databases then tells me nothing was relinked.  How do post houses link back?
