Inside the application there are move and duplicate functions for events and projects in the File menu. If you use that the application knows the media has been moved or copied and keeps track of its new location. If the media was moved with the right material at the finder level, you should be able to use the reconnect function to point the application to where the media is now.
Thanks for your help Tom.
I'm now aware that the correct way is to move and duplicate.
However previous to this I (perhaps foolishly) grabbed the FCP Event folder from the Finder window and dropped it into an external hard drive.
I've also grabbed the FCP Projects folders (that related to that Event) from the Finder window and dropped them into an external hard drive.
When I try to drop the Event back in the FCP Event folder (many) elements are missing.
When I try to drop the Projects back in the FCP Project folder it alerts me that there's a Missing Event.
So... is there a workaround?
(I cant seem to find the reconnect function you mentioned - but I doubt it will solve my problem?)
This should work fine - Event Manager does the same thing - moving folders.
But, as FCPX state, you have used stuff that is Not moved back to a locations where FCPX can find it!
Only valid Event locations are:
~/YourHomeFolder/Movies/Final Cut Events
/SomeExternalDrive/Final Cut Events
Same goes for Projects:
~/YourHomeFolder/Movies/Final Cut Projects
/SomeExternalDrive/Final Cut Projects
