After editing a Premiere project and seeing a final video, I often want to change the underlying media, whether that means processing the audio file differently or re-rendering some frames of an animation.
So far, I've been achieving this effect by appending '_old' to the names of the old media files and then saving new versions with the name I used when importing to Premiere, so Premiere will be oblivious to the difference. To be safe and organized, though, I want to do this without the renaming trickery.
Searching so far, I've only been able to find solutions for relinking missing or moved media. I can't seem to figure out how to link to different media. If I could just break the link between a clip and media without deleting/moving the media, that would be good enough, since I could just break the link and then pick the new file when repairing the link. (I think)
