    What causes "Selected items in ALL offline items" to be greyed out????


    I am trying to relink a master clip that I AMA's (Linked to) then transcoded, then deleted the transcoded media and now want to relink to the the original AMA (Linked to) file. I have the file, Music_05, link into a bin called Music. I highlight the Linked Music_05 clip in the bin and highlight the bin in the Bins panel. Then I right click on the offline master clip of the transcoded Music_05 and select "relink". The relink panel pops up but the "Selected items in ALL open bins" option is greyed out. And when I try the "Media on drive:" options relink doesn't find the Linked to Music_05 file. Been driving me crazy so figured I'd post and see if there's a step I'm missing.

    Relink to selected items is only available for sequences. For master clips they either re-link or they don't.

    AVid either knows they are rleated so will re-link or believs they aren't so just won't.

    M isn't like FCP its very hard to force a relink that Avid doesn't think should exist.

    If your master clip was in a sequence and pointing to missing transcoded media you should be able to relink that to a fresh AMA link of that clip. Thats how its designed to work.
