Cloud Collaboration For Post-Production

Hello, I started working on a feature film recently, with the group of people. We decided to use Avid Cloud Collaboration as the deadlines are tight as always. But unfortunately we ran into problems right away, specifically we cannot work on the same channel simultaneously. Sharing edits or even markers deletes other people's work on the same channel or marker field. We found a workaround, but this doubled the session ...more »

Comments area for Playlists as there is for tracks

We have a comments area for tracks in Pro Tools, and this feature should be very handy if we had it for each playlist lane as well.

Option to Exclude Tracks from ALL Group

Obviously, the ALL group is helpful, but there are some tracks (e.g. Reverb Aux, Mix-Level Aux, Instrument-Grouping Auxes, etc.) which I want to always keep at 0 dB. It would be great if we could modify the ALL group to flag specific tracks it shouldn't control. It would then continue to update everything else as usual (including any newly added tracks, obviously - that's why this would be better than making your own ...more »

Slip memory markers with audio clips

I would like the ability to include memory markers when slipping audio clips instead of only cutting and pasting clips with markers. This could be a selection in preferences.

Visual follows playback delay compensation

Please; make all visual reference like; edit windows scroll bar, plugin VU etc, follows playback sync. With large mixing sessions and large delays compensation in place, all visual feedback can become almost useless.

Find Track Name 2.0

Find Track Name is useful too, but:

 

1. Why are there only 2 matches shown in the list? The list could go much longer to show more entries without using Up/down Buttons.

 

2. Why only match the beginning of the track name and not ANY PART of the track name... eg. i type "git" and get "back_git_1", "back_git_2" and "lead_git" as results...

 

Would be soooo much more useful then... please go for it in 10.8.3

Batch rename to files

addition to batch rename: if i select clips in my timeline, which are actually files on my hd, there should be an option to rename the file name too... like double clicking on a consolidated clip - there is an option to rename clip and/or file name

Mapping MIDI messages to Key Commands

It would be great to have the ability to map MIDI messages to key commands. This is very helpful when using Lemur based applications to be able to tap a button on your iPad and have it send some kind of MIDI message to your DAW that actually will cause it to do some action like add a track, nudge a clip, create a new playlist, etc. To make this work in Pro Tools a 3rd party application is needed to intercept MIDI messages ...more »

Double clicking between markers selects the area between both markers

This would allow you to instantly loop a section of the session, select it for editing, fit to window, etc. without having to select-shift-select the markers in the marker track or memory location window.

Auto-update show/hide for memory locations

Currently, if you create a show/hide memory location that allows you to only view your drum tracks for example, and you then decide to add a new track to that group, you have to manually update the memory location or else the newly created track will not show up when selecting that memory location again. This is very inconvenient and makes this feature almost useless in my opinion and track folders preferable. I find ...more »

Video track "on line" key command - for multiple video tracks

When there are multiple video tracks in a session a key-command/region-select is needed to select which video track is to play. Having to reach to the left of tracks to select the blue button is so yesterday. especially with the large screens. This would be very usefui when comparing multiple videos when conforming.

Edit window territories - Color coded work spaces within session

Work would greatly benefit from the ability to determine the beginning and ending of areas (like group regions) but would cross some or all tracks and allow for the placement and editing of regions within. This would allow for the timeline based organization or cueing of work to be done, though not necessarily occupied with sound. These territories would be seamless upon the deletion within the timeline. The most important ...more »
