Bug: Replaced footage in Project panel doesn't update the name of the footage.
When you replace old footage with new footage - say a new version of a render - the footage updates but the name of the footage does not. It becomes confusing and requires constantly double-checking the path to make sure it's actually reading the correct footage.
Thank you for reporting this issue. In trying to reproduce it on our end, I noticed that only renamed footage doesn't have its name updated when it is replaced. Footage that still has its original name does have its name updated when it is replaced. Is this the same as the behavior you are seeing?
