I'd like an easy way to replace footage. E.g. right-click footage on the timeline, choose "replace" or "relink" or something similar. And then choose a different video. Afterwards a message could appear that asks me whether I want to retain the current timeline timings, avoiding that the rest of the timeline moves if I place a longer/shorter clip. Or if I want to place the new footage as is, resulting in the total timeline growing or shrinking.

It should be easier to have a link to a footage in order to change/replace it / modify it
I'm spending to much time on it with clients always modifying the design, i really prefer inDesign concept, a link is safer and efficient.

I import new footage in front of previous footage on timeline. Then that "dislodges" the attached pieces from the previous video. I then go to the pieces on timeline and move them so they are now with the new video. Then delete previous video. (Make sure nothing is connected to it before you delete it, as a double check) It is a bit clunky but it has worked for me.

For professional use where I'm making video series on the same template, this is the difference between Rush being viable vs not at all.
C. Clavo's comment is very helpful however.

You can 'trigger' this if you move the original video imported to your project, or change its name, so it won't fidn it. Then, you get the option to search for the video and there you can place the new one you want.
It would be great to have this option always on to simply replace a video, specially when it is in the main timeframe, because you have to do quite a bit of thing to achieve that.

Absolutely, we need this.

Yes this would be great and also if the above transitions, etc were not attached to the file below. So when you delete this file everything else above it doesn't go away.

THIS. This is the one thing keeping us from using Rush for our new social media current events series. If you guys make this happen you'll dominate the professional market.

This would be great! I'm creating a video in Rush that originally comes from Keynote. So I create a sequence in Keynote, export it as a video, I import it in Rush to add music and effects and then export it finished afterwards. But if I want to make changes in the video, like changing a text for example, I have to import again it besides the video. Then I manually move all the audio and other effects to the changed video sequence. If I could just replace the video for a new one, retaining all of the other effects, it would be a time-saver.
