Post subject:  Relinking Missing Media

I inadvertently removed some media for a project in LumaFusion and want to relink the media. I imported the files via OneDrive again but have to assume they need to be in the exact same location as the old files in the UserMedia folder structure. Is there any way to determine the path these files need to be in? I can't seem to get LumaFusion to recognize that the files are there.

If not, better tools for re-linking media would be helpful in the future. Thankfully, I've exported this project and was simply doing this as an excessive for the future when this might be an issue.

Apple adds an 'internal filename' which is not the same every time and why you can't do it the way you were trying

Exporting and Importing is the best way (as you've found out)

I just had this same experience, im going to have to re edit the files I moved to a folder I suppose.

The files are still complete, just in a new location. Is there really no way to re-link them?

I wonder moving forward would it be complicated to select the clip on the timeline and then select the file that belongs within that edited spot?

Hi Paul

Your project will still be intact so if you know what clip went where justdrag the media back from its new location

It’s a pain, but it’s the way Apple do it unfortunately

Just to emphasize Dave's last comment, here's my experience.

If you have missing media in your timeline just return it to the appropriate subfolder (i.e., OneDrive, Dropbox, iCloud Drive, etc.) in the LumaFusion UserMedia folder and it will automatically relink to the timeline without loss of any edits (e.g., Color & Effects, Size, Keyframes, etc). You might have to shut LumaFusion down and reopen to see the relinks.
