I just finished a large project, that is a combo of many projects.  I am trying to duplicte each project with the used clips only.

All of ths went well except for one of th eprojects.  I get the warning that says 2 or more of the files have the smae name.

After looking into this I think the issue is with voice overs.  Some went to one event some went to another, when they get combined into the new event some have the same name, like "voiceover 1".


Two questions.

1) Is there a way to see which files have the same name ?


2) Where do I rename the files ?  I have tried doing it in the inspector, in the projects list of files used aand the events themselves.  Nowhere did I get the name to change in all locations.  It seems FCPX is locked into the original name that was created when the file went into the event.


Any insight would be appreciated.
