In the Conform tab, right-click the Event list and select Load new FCP XML/AAF.
Or if you already imported the XML using the MediaHub, open it on the Timeline and switch to the Conform tab.
From the window that appears, locate and select the XML to import, and then click Load.
The XML is loaded and opened as a sequence in the timeline view of the Conform tab.
Click Set Search Directory to locate the directory where Smoke can find the media files you want to use for sources.
You now have two lists: the Event lists, displaying all the events making up the sequence, and the Sources lists, displaying all the source media Smoke found at the location you set using the Set Search Directory button.
With Options > Filter Potential Matches selected, click an event to view, in the Sources list, the sources that Smoke determined to be a potential match.
What you do next depends on the Status column of each event.
Select Link Found Sources from the Linking combo box. Link Found Sources links all events with the Match status to their unique sources. Match indicates that Smoke found only one source from the Sources list that fit the selected Match Criteria.
Select the event and the source to relink, and then select Link Selected from the Linking combo box. If there are too many sources to choose from, you can set additional criteria using the Match Criteria drop-down menu; by trial and error you reduce the number of filtered sources. Make sure Options > Filter Potential Matches is enabled, to display only the filtered souces.
No Match Found
Either add more sources to the Media folder or modify the criteria selected in the Match Criteria drop-down box. Not Found indicates that either the criteria are too restrictive for Smoke to find a match, or that the source is simply not there.
Add sources to the Media folder. Unlinked indicates that the event is not linked to any source. It appears only when no sources are available in the Media folder, and the Conform section of the Media panel displays 0 clips available.
Don't do anything: the event is already linked to an event. A Linked event only appears if Options > Hide Linked is not selected.
Once there all the events are linked to sources, you can leave the Conform tab.
