“I am new to FCP X and am currently working on my very first project on it. I am keeping my original clips in a folder on a drive, along with my FCP project. While organizing the project, I re-named some of the clips. Next time I opened the project file, I noticed that all the clips look red and they are disconnected. Anyone knows how to fix missing files in Final Cut Pro?”
