Duplicate file names in Media window

RgVideo wrote on 1/11/2023, 1:33 PM

Using MSP 16, build 167.

I created a project with many photos.  It was easier to find the photos in a low resolution folder, so I used them.  Now I'd like to replace them with high resolution ones before my final rendering.  The high resolution ones have the same file name, but are in a different folder.

When I drag the hi-res ones into the media window I end up with two photos with the same name.  I was hoping the new ones would replace the old, with maybe a warning message.  Now it appears I need to drag the hi-res one to the time line and replace the lo-res one as a "take".  Then delete the lo-res one from the media library, to avoid confusion when looking at the media window.  Any quicker way to do this?

Thanks,
Ralph

You are not using the latest build for the program, that is build 175
Did you try rightclick on a photo in Project Media and choose "replace. . ." ?

Thanks for the reminder as II don't use MSP regularly.  As I was driving home today, I thought I'd used a "replace" function before.  Eureka, it works great and saves me time! I just right click on the timeline event and select "Select in project media list" and it takes me right to the media entry where I right click and select "Replace"!
Thanks again, Ralph
