12.7.2 Missing video codec-- intermittent

Occasionally when opening up a session that had previously worked; I get the message that there is video in the session with a missing codec, even though it had previously worked. Often shutting down protools and restarting solves this, This only seems to happen with DNxHD codec files. I've never had it happen with Prores or h264.

Heal Separation no long works without extending selection beyond clip boundaries

When a clip has a cleared section in the middle, and the remaining portions of the clip have not been moved, it used to be that you could select the cleared area and use the Heal Separation command on it. See image. My workflow has always been: 1. Click in the gap 2. Ctrl-Tab (Windows) to set the selection to the previous boundary (the end of the first clip) 3. Shift-Tab to select to the following boundary (the start ...more »

Terminal periodically opens

Sometimes a terminal suddenly pops up.

As it looks, it caused by some bug in the interaction between OS and Avid apps.

Maybe it's the Application Manager that causes all this trouble?

 

I see that some users have the same issue:

Consistent behavior request - local drive, SAN vs. network share

If you open a session on a server share or an Isis, Pro Tools creates a temp file (session_name.tmp) in the same folder as the session. In this temp file it places the net name and IP address of the computer which has the session open. If another user attempts to open this session they are informed that it is open already by computer xxx and can only be opened "Read Only" . In our view this is logical and correct ...more »

Bounce to Quicktime movie 5.1 – track order wrong

When bouncing to a Quicktime movie in 5.1 in PT 12.8.0 and lower, the track order is wrong when playing the resulting file in other applications. It appears as though Film order us being used, and SMPTE/ITU order is expected.

Groups sometimes stick in 12.8

In PT 12.8 on Win7, using keyboard shortcuts for soloing, muting, record enable, etc. sometimes will be applied to all members of a group immediately after the group has been disabled via keyboard shortcut.

With keyboard focus on GROUPS: 1. type "a" to enable the group 2. type "s" to solo the group 3. type "s" to unsolo the group 4. type "a" to disable the group 5. Select ...more »

Change Input monitor colour to Blue if Auto-Low Latency mode is off

Sometimes Pro-tools isn't remembering upon reload a track's Low-latency mode setting.

 

For dubbing situations, this not always immediately obvious unless it's visible in the latency header of the mixer..

 

Can the input monitor button just turn blue instead of green? Then it's IMMEDIATELY obvious in the mixer AND edit windows.
