Please fix, update, or replace Merged clips with something that works
I already have a case open with Adobe and they say they’re looking into it, and they also suggested I post it here, so:
When performing a Project Manage consolidation, you will receive an “Unknown error” message if you have any Merged Clips in your timeline.
This is yet another reason why you should never use Merged Clips in a professional environment. (The other major flaw is that Merged Clips also eradicates sound metadata, making the handover to the Sound department an embarrassing nightmare #basedonatruestory)
This is in addition to all the other issues on this forum when looking up “Merge Clips.” The problems associated with using this “functionality” far outweigh the benefits, well... single benefit.
So to sum up: never use Merged Clips.
