Reconnecting Offline Media in Soundtrack Pro

Multitrack projects in Soundtrack Pro do not contain the media files that make up the project, instead, it references the files that are on your hard drive. It is possible for your project to go offline if the referenced media is either moved from its original location or deleted. If you haven't deleted the original media files and emptied the garbage can, here is how you can reconnect offline media in a Soundtrack Pro multitrack project.

Reconnecting Media

When you first attempt to open the multitrack project containing the missing media a Can't Find File dialog box will appear giving you these options: Skip File, Cancel, Find File. If you choose Skip File and open up the project, this is how you would reconnect the missing media.
