Adding project containing duplicate media to Production
I’m working on a project using a Production in Premiere 2022.
I have another project outside of the Production that has some of the same footage. I was doing a quick export of some footage which turned into a more involved selects sequence which I’d like to bring into the Production. When I import the project it naturally brings in all the media from that project. I’d like to change it so the selects sequence links to the media in our “footage” project.
I see there’s an “Edit > Reassociate Source Clips” command, but when I select the clips in the timeline and run it, it doesn’t seem to change anything.
It seems like the “Reassociate Source Clips” command wasn’t really intended for bringing new projects with duplicate media into a Production, rather for fixing linking for clips already existing in a Production.
My project has “Write XMP ID to files on import” not selected, which is Premiere’s default. Not sure if having that checked at the beginning of the production or before importing the new project would’ve helped things.
