I edited a film and used the "create optimized files" option, which wasn't really necessary since it was just a home movie.  So now I have a folder with very large file size copies of the same video and that's what I used to edit with.  I also have the original media in a folder on my desktop.  FCP used proxy instead of copying it.  That was my doing, but I woiuld prefer for the media to be in my FCP folder and I would prefer to get rid of the large optomized media.


Is it possible to delete the optomized media folder and get the movie to refer instead to the original media?  And how do I get that original media to be in the FCP library (apart from just moving it there manually)
