I have an offline sequence made with proxy mov files that I want to link media to create an online with the original R3D files. When I go to link nothing happens. I click on the R3D file when prompted for the file name. There's no error message. It just sits there and won't do anything. I checked that I can import the R3D file into the bin and play it. What am I missing?
That should work based on what you describe. I would clean your cache, trash your prefs and restart the computer. See if you can clear out a ghost or something...
If that doesn't work, try a new project, import the old and try again.
