Spot dialog box bug

Please take a look at this screenshot and give me an opinion. Notice the time code where the cursor is parked. When the input dialog is set to "spot", shouldn't the "current location" show where the cursor is parked, so I can press the little down arrow and move that number to where I want to spot the incoming audio? The "current location" always comes up at "0". What's weird is my session doesn't even start at "0".

Pro Tools 12.8: 7.1.2 and 7.1.4 tracks showing as 7.1 tracks on older Pro Tools versions

When opening Pro Tools sessions with 7.1.2 or 7.1.4 tracks on older Pro Tools versions (prior 12.8), the tracks will show up as 7.1 tracks and the height speaker channels will be truncated without warning. I think there should be at least an error message (like opening a session with 5.1 or 7.1 tracks on a non-HD System) or the tracks should be deleted from the session. If not, you will never know that the tracks had ...more »

Mixer Level meters get choppy if there's floating meters on the same screen

I'm finding that if you have a mixer window open, and then have a bunch of floating mixer strips open - the refresh of the meters drops significantly in updating speed. It makes no difference if it's on my primary or secondary monitors, and my Graphicss card is plenty powerful (GT-980TI). Also. meter performance with NO floating meters is totally fluid, even if I have a 1080p video running on the same screen. ...more »

Pro tools will not bounce my project then freezes up.

When I load my most recent project I attempt to bounce it and it starts for a second then it will stop freezing pro tools. It works on other projects. When it happens it trips my interface out and will not be able to initialize the ASIO making me have to restart my computer. Troubles are dumb. Please help.

Mono mult output bug in PT 12.8

I have a mono track for 2-pop and tones that uses multiple output assignments to put tones and 2-pop directly on the re-record tracks. But for some reason, I can't mult to more than (10) outputs!. This is serious. That track usually goes to 40-50 outputs. Anyone else seeing this? My other multiple output assignments seem to be behaving, but maybe that's because they're all assigned to fewer than (10) outputs. Wasn't ...more »

Preference for disable internet traffic

Recently, I came into bug in PT 12.7.1 (Mac version) (not only this one, but I tested on this version) when Pro Tools generated network traffic cause UI lags during playback. Every 3-5 seconds I see counter stops for second or two, even cannot select any menu item, while playback goes smooth. After very time-consuming checking I discovered that it is caused by network traffic generated by Pro Tools itself - it constantly ...more »

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:
