Pro Tools bugs

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. For example, create a group designated by letter a. 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 »

AAF missing files message in 12.8

I just upgraded from 12.7.1 to 12.8 and now when open an AAF file I get an error message that "xxx audio files are missing" If I dismiss it all the files reconnect and I am not missing anything, but everytime I open the projects I get the same error message. If I choose to automatically relink the files, it searches forever and never finds anything. I down graded to 12.7.1 on the same computer and all works as it should. ...more »

Bounce to quicktime with external word sync & input monitor results in errors

Pro Tools HD 12.7.0 Audio interface is Komplete Audio 6 . The interface is locked to External S/pdif input . Works fine totally solid. I have that same S/pdif input pair assigned to an AUX track that is routed directly to my Stereo monitor output. When I bounce to quicktime the resultant movie audio track has digital errors all the way through the program material making it un-usable. As per page 480 in the reference ...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.

It's the biggest blunder ever and is absolutely maddening and pretty embarrassing for a company that has an entire division for pro video. ...more »

Generating Timecode/MTC when loop playback - old known bug

Recently, I came to a problem with generating timecode or MTC when loop playback. Everyone can check that Pro Tools (HD) does not generate correct timecode which reflects to real position in session, but after first loop it just continue increment address position in timecode/MTC. For example: select 10 seconds from 00:01:00:00 to 00:01:10:00. On the first iteration it will generate proper addresses. On the second iteration ...more »

File Relinking - Parent / Clip Name Bug

If an audio file in a Pro Tools session is renamed externally (i.e. using Windows explorer, or Finder) Pro Tools can be forced to link to the renamed file using the 'Find by File ID' option on reopening the session. Although this is fine for the short term, it presents a bit of problem. When the 'Find by File ID' option is used the parent name of the audio file updates, as it should, however the clip name of the audio ...more »

Window Configuration Bugs And Suggestions

- The workspace view presets will not remember the width adjustment of the locations pane. - I like to have Pro Tools open up with a workspace browser showing instead of the open dialog because I often revert to auto-backup sessions and sometimes Pro Tools does not remember some sessions in the open recent menu. However Pro Tools will not remember the position of the workspace if it is set to full screen and will always ...more »
