Relink the rest of them.
That's just it... I've tried that... it's NOT working! I'm hoping for another suggestion.
I've copied the entire project back to an internal raid... opened the project again, tried relinking, and it's not showing the media... again.
One more thing: I've noticed that I'm getting a "media mismatch" tag on the offline files...
I can import the original files into the project, drop them into an empty section of the timeline, and they work fine.... I just need to import them with the correct info, in the correct place.
Is there a way to fix the mismatch problem?
Sorry, I don't know. I've never worked with that media.
Just a guess here, but is the Matrox card still on the system you're using now? If so, that blows my theory of the mismatch coming from the lack of the Matrox and its drivers.
Exactly how are you attempting to do the re-linking? There are a couple of possible ways to do this, and your method might not be the best one.
Also, do you have any version of the Project that was Saved before the Media Offline came up. I hope that you've been saving with Save_As, or Save_As_a_Copy, as that might save (boy, that word is getting a lot use in this sentence!) you some time and effort. Maybe an older AutoSave or similar, if the original Project file has been saved over, with the Media Offline.
I have tried relinking the media from the project window.... I have tried on single clips and several clips to RIGHT CLICK and then select "relink media".
I get the navigation prompts, it ALLOWS me to select a clip to relink, and then the nav box closes... the clip in the project window remains the same. What other ways to do this are there?
As for the project file... well, you've given me a good idea. I'll go see what I have in the "vault" of auto saves! I am indeed using the project file as I've "control S'd" like crazy!
I'm using a project file that was TRIMMED down from the original in Premiere itself, using their tool to do so! I've had GREAT luck with that in the past. I'm a type A guy, so now I'll scour my drives to find the original project, if it still exists!
I am indeed using the Matrox card still... I have no idea what could cause this!
