Creating a new Library combining several others
I tried this once before and ended up in all sorts of mess, so am wondering if anyone out there has worked out a decent workflow for doing this.
I currently have several modest Libraries (between 20 to 120 Gb each), each with one or more Projects, a few Compound clips, and ALL footage consolidated within them (which with hindsight, may have been a mistake).
I am now working on a longer film and need to use footage, and maybe some sections of the edits along with new edits, from these various shorter Libraries.
There’s no simple ‘Combine Libraries’ command (which would obviously solve my issue), so I’m looking for advice and workflow to create this Master Library without all the issues I had before (doubled up clips / things that wouldn’t connect / ghost clips I couldn’t delete).
Anyone experienced in this?
I’m currently on FCPX 10.4.6 but about to upgrade to latest, so advice for either platform is fine at the moment.
