Is there anyway to detect and remove duplicate media files in Premiere Pro?

I gave a job to an editor in which they started the edit, but forgot to import some of the footage, so removing the media and re-importing everything is not an option. The footage that was imported has been organized in multiple bins so it is not possible to just organize by name and see whats missing. This project has a significant amount of footage.

I actually gave that a shot last night and nothing happened. Maybe it’s not yet functionally.

Why and how though, could you describe what your bins looked like?

was any of the footage interpreted differently?

do the duplicates all have to be completely identicle or will just having a silimar file name cut it?

You could of course make a copy, or multiple copies of your project and give it a try, see what happens....
