Movietrack delete incomplete

When I have imported a movie and delete the track because I do not need it anymore, the Task manager always opens, when I restart the session and searches for the moviefile. There is no apparent way to overcome this. Please fix.

  1. Is the movie showing in the Regions bin? If so - delete it from the regions bin, then save the session.

    Let us know if this works for you.

    NO ANSWER!? Do you mean Region list when you say region bin. I want to learn. What is the Region bin.

    Man, I could have solved this problem two weeks ago if you would not be so arrogant to shortly explain the term region bin. This is really annoying.

  6. Regions list and Regions bin - same thing. Industry standards call it a 'bin', which is why I used the term.

    As for being arrogant - we had a problem with comments and the approval process, which someone brought to my attention today. It's been fixed - I hadn't seen your comments prior to today.

    1. That's an interesting claim, as AVID certified Pro Tools Trainers ARE TAUGHT and TOLD TO CALL IT as "Region/Clip LIST", and "Industry standards call it a 'bin'" does not compute in my unworthy brain.

      I thought I work in the industry and I am an ACI...

    I checked the problem again. When I import a film, it won´t appear in the region bin. As I deleted this film by deleting the movie track it seems to also have erased the formerly searched movie. When I open the session again, no movie was missed. Maybe there went something wrong with the saving of the session.

  8. have the same problem with a session,

    protools asks for a video-file but it doesnt

    show up in the region bin.

    Deleting the video track (with the Video

    i use)doesnt help in my case.
