    I have edited a short piece and want to exchange the clips in my timeline with higher resolution media. What is the best way to replace/overwrite media? DO I just rename clip at it's destination and then do reconnect media? or Is there a function in the toolbar to replace or overwrite? or do I rename the clip in the browser ?

    Wow, the OP does not even mention the software s/he is using. I assumed it was FCP.

    If you need to capture them again:

    Recapturing Full-Resolution Media for Your Sequence

    Once you create a sequence with online-quality settings, you can bring it to an online
    editing system along with your original tapes and any graphic, video, and audio files
    necessary to recreate your sequence.

    To recapture media for your full-resolution sequence:

    1 Open the project file you created that contains your duplicated sequence with
    online-quality settings.

    2 Select the sequence in the Browser.

    3 To recapture all of the offline clips in the sequence, do one of the following:
    - Choose File > Batch Capture.
    - Control-click on the sequence and choose Batch Capture from the shortcut menu.
    - Press Control-C.

    If the media is already online, you could try the renaming it, but I don't know how it will affect the sequence. Make a backup of the project first.

    Are the higher resolution media and the lower media the exact same, despite the compression (length)?
