LumaFusion 1.7 is now available in the App Store. This update includes great new features like search and sort in the library, soft edges and curved corners in cropping, and our new integration with Storyblocks, a great royalty-free library of video, audio and sound effects. A sample of clips are included free, with a low-cost subscription available in-app for access to the full library

I' moved some files on my ipad and the media needs to be relinked.
On the main video track I have relinked everything but the clips on track 2/3 and any audio clips below that wont allow me to relink them.
When I pull the file down and hold it over the missing file on the timeline I dont get the popup to select replace missing

(I tried to upload a screen recording but .mov is not an allowed extension, then I exported the file from Luma Touch but .mp4 is not allowed either)

Edit/Update: If I drag the clips down from track 2 and 3 into the main track I can relink them, then move them back up. Not ideal as I have to realign everything because it shoves all the clips around. This workaround is useless for my synced lav mic since I cant move audio into the video track 1.

Hello Officially.Colin

Yes, everything you describe here makes sense. When media is brought into LumaFusion, it's location on the iPad is linked to the clip in the library and on the timeline.
If the clips are moved as you indicate, then the link is broken.

We don't have a mechanism in place for re-linking clips to their media when this happens. The method of replacing a clip as you describe it was not intended to be used in this situation
and that is why it doesn't function on the other video and audio tracks.

I'll add a feature request describing the scenario that you layed out and hopefully we can come up with a better solution.

Tell me your reasoning for moving the clips, that would be helpful to know.

regards

I imported the files from Dropbox.
When I finished I moved files around in my Dropbox to tidy it up a little.
When I wanted to bring that project back into Luma to make an change the file structure was different and that broke the project.
I realised my mistake and I’ve no problem re-linking the files one by one, but having it that only the main timeline can be re-linked seems a little silly.
Either way, thanks for the reply and hopefully it won’t be too difficult to implement in the future.

OK, so I thought to myself, what if I moved the files back to the original folder structure I had.
It worked. All the files are now relinked in the project.
This might not work for everyone as I never removed the files from my ipad. I just changed the folder structure, so no file names were changed.
My results might not be the same for everyone.

Hello Officially.Colin

That's great. And, I forgot to mention that too. If you put everything back to it's original locations, and the folder and clip names haven't changed, then it should all link up. The only place where this won't work is with the Photos app.
