Merge Imported Files
Say you're doin' a bit of editing, and you've got yourself in a bit of a pickle and realise you've left a beautifully cut sequence in an older project file. You go and import the sequence from the old project and then BAM, it has imported the rushes AGAIN! WHY!
So here's my idea, when something like this happens, it would be absolutely magic if we could say select the imported rushes folder and the rushes folder that was already there (matching of course), and then right click and hit a button (something like "Merge Imported Files") and it will bring up a dialogue box allowing you to choose which import takes priority. This would help avoid duplicating files in a project and other things.
Many thanks in advance for your opinions.
