I have been dealing with this issue to create a delivery requirement archive version of a doc feature with only the used media. Many anomalies and inexcusable bugs but I did figure out one useful detail. Before you media manage the master sequence you need to create a new “fresh” sequence and then copy and paste the used clips into it from the master timeline. This seemed to clean up all the stray un-used media from being copied...otherwise all sorts of things get cloned across. If you have to rigorously check this to be sure it is correct then it is an epic failure. Also, why can’t there be automatic relinking to clips at the new location if you want that...nope not possible. This is a monumental time suck and brutally inefficient. All the more maddening when you know under the hood the software must have the data to do this efficiently but the code to enable this process is obviously not written robustly. It can take days to do something that really should be 2 to 4 hours of work...isn’t that cool when we all have so much extra time built into our post schedules.
