I have a time where I have brought in a mp4 file and done timeline operations like ripple deletes, etc on it. I realize I want to edit that underlying media directly and have those changes appear in my timeline while maintaining my cuts. It seems that when I do "replace clip from project" with the new updated media, it just replaces it from the beginning not maintaining my clips.
@gerikp , I use a video recorder camtasia for my screen recordings, then export an mp4 from that. Sometimes, I find I need to go back to camtasia and re-export the mp4 files because I forgot some post processing or did it wrong. For example, camtasia can put cursor automatations and a click sound track on the mp4 it creates. I'll often chop up those produced mp4 files and find out later, I did not add the right effect so I go back to camtasis to re-export, then I need to replace that video (with all the chop ups) in PR. Here is an example.
One issue is that the new file may include an audio track, where as the original one did not. Basically, I just want to replace it in place
