Reconnecting Media

Whether your project elements were captured or imported into your project, the clips always link back to a specific place on the hard drive where that media is stored. If you move the media or rename the media file, the link between the clip icon in the project and the media file on the hard drive is broken. The clip in the Browser goes offline, and a red diagonal stripe appears over the clip icon. The icon no longer knows where to find the actual media file. This occurred when you logged clips in the previous lesson in preparation to use Batch Capture. The logged clips had no real media to link to, and were therefore offline.

Breaking the connection with your media can happen for various reasons. You may want to move a project from your computer to someone else's computer, or from your G4 tower to your laptop so you can edit on the go. Or, maybe you decided to rename all the media files on your hard drive in the middle of a project. Any of these situations will cause a break in the original clip's link to the media locations and cause the clip to go offline. In order to continue working with the clip, you must reconnect the project clip to the media file's new location.
