Pro Tools features

Graphics support for iMac and other 4k and 5k screens

The reason why Pro Tools is lagging on a 4-5k display is because the native resolution of Pro Tools currently supports 1080p. The 4-5k display feature is yet to be added by Avid. The current workaround for this would be switching to 1080 display so Pro Tools wouldn't lag.


I am using iMac 17.1 (5k Retina) and it is almost impossible to work with Pro Tools unless I switch to 1080 screen.


4-5k graphics support please!

Pro Tools bugs

PT 12 FPS drop with 4k and 5k display

Pro Tools 12 Support needed for 4k and 5k displays. When making edits, dragging, or scrolling in the edit window the display is choppy. This is due to the extra time the graphics card needs to render the edit.

I think i am one of many customers with graphics issues in PT 12.x But the more we make complaints, the better chances ...more »
