    How to update an mp3 asset?

    hhhhhhhhhhhhhh5 Level 1

      I had some placeholder mp3 files in a project. Now that the production audio is ready, I need to replace them without changing file names. That seems to be an easy task, but no matter what I do, the old audio stays in the project. I have replaced the old files with the new files in the file system, so the old audio must be "hiding" somewhere in AE cache. I used "Empty Disk Cache" and multiple AE restarts. The only thing that worked, is removing the old asset from AE, importing new file under a different name and then inserting it into the composition. This is time-consuming and kind of dumb .

       

      I'm still learning the basics of AE, so perhaps I missed something obvious?
