Anyone else having an issue relinking to externally created proxies? When I select the clips that are offline and go to relink to proxies. I get the relink dialog with no media clips to relink. If I switch to relink all, same issue.

BUT if I select relink to original I have the option to relink.



Am I misunderstanding how relinking to externally created media should be done?

It's as if FCPX doesn't think the offline clips need proxies.

The new feature to relink to external 3rd-party proxies requires XML to guide the process. Otherwise FCPX has no reliable way of knowing what proxy file matches what media file.

www.apple.com/newsroom/2020/08/final-cut...rkflow-improvements/

The process was described this way: "Editors can now link to proxy media generated by third-party applications via XML. Examples include Frame.io, a cloud-based creative collaboration platform for review and approval, plus asset management tools like Keyflow Pro and PostLab."

It seems plausible that clever people like Philip Hodgetts and Andreas Kiel (who are highly skilled at XML metadata) might eventually offer utilities to facilitate this.

On 10.4.09 it is not necessary to relink original media before relinking to FCPX-generated external proxies. After moving proxies to another drive, they will go off line, then you just select those red clips, then Files>Relink Files>Proxy Media. It will relink only the proxies in their new location.

The OP was asking about 3rd-party proxies, not FCPX-generated proxies. 3rd-party proxies will not relink by any method, but require XML from the software that generated them. Examples include Frame.io, Keyflow Pro and PostLab. Possibly after 3rd-party proxies are connected via XML they could be relinked using the above method if moved to another drive.

I use ffmpeg to convert the proxy files. The origin files must be online before i link to the ffmpeg proxy files , If the origin files missing i got error,the relink window didn’t show the missing proxy files. Once I set all proxy files online .I copy project without origin files to the other mac relink proxy files works fine too .

With 10.4.9, why would you create proxies with ffmpeg, since FCPX gives ability for various frame sizes, both ProRes and H264? With 10.4.9 there is a very simple workflow for creating a small proxy-only library. The procedure is much less error-prone than previous methods. It automatically handles non-proxy assets such as audio and graphics. See Ripple Training summary starting at 11:32:
