    Retrieving/recreating lost media files

    I was trying to move media files for a specific project onto a new drive, but during the consolidation process I ended up deleting my media files, and now most (strangely not all) of the files in my bins and all my sequences are offline. Is there a way to recreate the media files and relink them?

     

    I am in AMC 8 on a PC

     

    Thanks for any responses.

    Can you retrieve them from your wastebasket?

    Deleted media doesn't go to the trash (you'd not save space if it did)

    If media has been deleted (ignoring drive recovery options) then you need to re-ingest it.

    If it was imported it needs to be batch imported. If captured from tape then batch captured.

    If AMA linked then transcoded or consolidated . Then re-AMA linked and re-consolidated/transcoded.

    Thanks for the advice.

     

    A few questions about the process.

    I have all my clips organized an labelled in various bins. They all read as offline ever since I deleted the media files.

    To bring those offline clips online, do I relink the re-transcoded clips?

    Will this also work for the sequences already in the project?
