  • How to delete media from a Library and, instead, connect it to external media.

    Posted by John Fishback on November 17, 2023 at 9:43 pm

    I usually Leave Files in Place when importing media to a Library. I didn’t notice that my import prefs were set to Copy to Library, and I imported many GB that I actually wanted to stay left in place.

    Is there a way to reverse this. i.e. remove clips stored in the Library and, instead, link them back to the external drive location where the media resides? I’ve searched for an answer, but may not have asked the right question. I’m running an M2 Max MBP, FCP 10.6.10, Ventura 10.6.2, 32GB RAM, 2 TB SSD, and two 2TB external SSDs (one for material I use over & over, the other for editing projects). Thanks.
