Clips should show Clipnames when using Automation View

In the Edit Window Clipnames are not visible when using Automation View (Pan,Vol etc)

on Tracks.

They should be visible or , at least , there should be a preference to turn it on and off.

Edit memory location - switch to next memory location keyboard shortcut

When editing track names and comments, you can switch to the next or previous track by using the keyboard shortcut [cmd+left/right arrow]. It would be very handy if this shortcut could also be used when editing memory locations. When the Edit Memory Location dialog is open, you could use [cmd+left/right arrow] to switch to the next or previous memory location, thus not having to close the dialog and double click on the ...more »

Play from Left Edit Window Edge Command

I would love to have a key command to start playback from the left window edge in the Edit Window. It's a feature found on Logic, and I remember having used it extensively back in my Logic days... It is just so convenient, because I find myself often working on a specific section, zoomed in in the Edit Window. I know there's commands to play form the cursor, or Pre-Roll or to the edit cursor etc. but it would be great ...more »

In Grid mode, use the Command (Mac) or Control (Windows) key to toggle off (or “clutch” out of)

It would be very handy to turn that function on and off via the prefs menu. In some situations like high speed editing it is very annoying to have the insertion/selection always jumping to grid mode.

 

Thanks

Separate Clips at all Memory Location Markers

Have a feature in the Memory location window to put a clip separation everywhere there is a memory location marker for a highlighted track.

 

For those of us who edit LOTS of voiceovers, I will make separations at all the memory locations (bad parts in the script) so that when I'm editing....I don't move all the audio further down stream, causing it to be off it's marker.

Edit Window Split View

Similar to freezing rows or columns in a spreadsheet program, I've often thought it would be great to be able to lock specific tracks at the top of your edit window so that they were constantly visible while being able to vertically scroll through the rest of your session. For example, keeping picture editorial guide tracks locked at the top of your edit window so they would be constantly visible / available for reference. ...more »

Edit View Separator Track / Space

I would love to be able to see more visual separation of sections of my mix in the edit view window. I often find myself putting in extra tracks to act as separators between elements in my mix. If I could insert a dedicated 'separator' track - that looked unique in some way - it would work well as a quick visual reference for navigating my way around the more complex mixes. Even just the ability to add empty space ...more »

Audio Wild Record / Audio Clip Selection "Clip Source Window"

The Ability to record in the "Clip Source Window" a wild mono or stereo track, where the clip ends up in the Clip menu or a specified folder i.e Wild VO Records, saves a lot of time and maintains a clean timeline, rather than having to navigate through unneeded extra

tracks and clips on the timeline which is very time consuming. please see attachment.

BASIC EDITING of 'frozen' clips - like Ableton Live

After using the 'track freeze function' I wanted to trim and duplicate a portion of 'frozen' audio, but Pro Tools 12.4 does not allow this.

 

It would be good to allow basic editable functions of frozen audio clips, like functionality found in Ableton Live 9 software. Using Ableton we can currently move; edit, cut, copy, paste and trim AFTER tracks have been frozen.
