ProTools 12.5 Avid Video Engine unstable

ProTools 12.5 is unable to reliably open and play any video. This seems independent of video format (DNxHD, h.264, ProRres) Rolling back to 12.4 and there are no such problems. Seems many others are having similar problems.

Licensing for Facilities?

The current method of upgrades/licensing really, really is time-intensive and aggravating for larger installs/facilities. My reseller has Avid send me a bunch of boxes, and then I have to open them all and punch in the codes. It would at least be easier to have Avid deliver them directly to our Avid account, without cutting out our reseller entirely. It works great for a system or two, but twenty-plus, all with some ...more »

Add mix preference: Sends default to [insert user definable number here] dB

Add mix preference: Sends default to [insert user definable number here] dB

 

In addition to the 'Sends default to -INF' pref, it would be great to have another option that allows the used to set a value.

 

Thanks for voting this idea up.

Dante/AVB bridge/HDX support

Two products that would be useful for interfacing HDX systems with burgeoning industry of Ethernet audio-based monitoring, distribution, etc systems. * A Digilink to Dante/AVB bridge * New HDX cards with an Ethernet port that bridges directly to the TDM bus (in addition to Digilink; presumably the Ethernet port would rob channels from the Digilink port) It would be great for the choice of protocol to be software selectable ...more »

Audio Director

Can we please add "Batch Bounce". I have a client that after the core spot is done wants to add 100 phone numbers. If the user could setup a step by step macro that would be awesome.

Basically, Bounce> mute track 1, un mute track2, Bounce> mute track2 un mute track3, Bounce> mute track3 un mute track4 ECT. Now turbo bounce does speed up the process but if you batch bounce like that -Yipee.

Keyboard Shortcut for Matching Field Recorder Channels

It would be very efficient and useful to have a keyboard shortcut for flipping through matching field recorder channels. This would help post production folks quickly toggle to the next mic/channel from a field recorder. Sometimes there are 10 matching field recorder channels and right clicking the region each time gets really time consuming so having a keyboard shortcut for this would speed things up tremendously.

Laggy Meters in PT 12.5.0 when you open certain plugins & move parameters

This might also be a message to pass onto all 3rd party plugin developers as well as the Avid plugin developers.

 

Some plugins cause PT 12.5.0 Meters to lag while you move the parameters (or even the mouse when the plugin is open).

 

My setup: 12 processor 3.46Ghz Mac Pro Mid 2010, OSX latest El Capitan, 128GB RAM, PT 12.5.0 HDX.

 

Thanks.

Used Mono buses don't show up in "Yellow" on Mono Tracks

This is glitch on Mono Trakcs only (on the Sends slots). Mono buses that are currently in use don't show up in "Yellow" to indicate it's being used. For example: If bus 1-2 is being used on stereo track somewhere, bus 1 (Mono) or bus 2 (Mono) won't be in Yellow for when your setting a bus on a Mono Tracks Sends. So it looks like the bus is free but's really it's being used. I'm currently using PT 12.5.0, 12 processor ...more »

Create a batch installer for Space Impulse Responses

when I switched to PT12, the plugin SPACE was installed on my system. But there was only one impulse response for each category (Church/Plates/Rooms etc) installed. I can download hundreds of IR frm AVIDs page https://www.avid.com/en/plugins/space-impulse-response-library Doing so, I can install every IR only one by one! This is not a professional way of installing a reverberation unit. It takes way to much time. So ...more »

MS Decoder Plugin DSP and Native

I want to record in Mid-Side mode. I would do this by recording a stereo audio channel. The left channel carries the MID signal, the right channel the side signal. In the first plugin slot I like to have a MS deoder plugin, that converts the two signals into the final stereo signal, so that I can hear what the final sound will be. At the moment, PT 12.4 does not include ANY (!) MS decoding plugin. My wish is to have ...more »
