Video Import option to Include Copy and Import

When Importing Video files to a session, Alt+Shft+Cmd+I adds a video to a session

Can we add another modifier to make it copy and import and put the video in the video files folder.

Windows10-PTHD12.7.1 doesnt import .aiff-File

Import is not offered for AIFF: As well via DragDrop-to-Cliplist - as well as from Workspace

According to VLC (on Mac) the source-file is "PCM SL16 LE" (=Pulsecodemodulation signed 16-bit little-endian).

I can't believe worldwide popular AIFF-format is incompatible in year 2017 ?!?

Obey / Ignore "Freeze" status in Import Session Data Dialog

The Freeze status of a track needs to be added to the parameter list in the Import Session Data Dialog box. As it is now, you get odd behavior when importing tracks that are frozen even if all media related parameters are unchecked.

Import Session Data: Track Names as an option when Matching Tracks

For film and TV: If I send a session from a template to an editor (or several), who does some work and changes track names to something helpfully descriptive (Cars 1-4, Rain 1-8, etc.), I'd like to be able to match tracks back into my master session, and include their changed track names as well as the clips. As it currently works, matching tracks and importing gives you of course plenty of options, but updating the ...more »

Assertion Errors when importing audio - Using 'Clear Find' as a 'Solution'

I would sometimes have "Assertion Errors" when importing audio into Pro Tools from the Workspace Browser, starting in PT 11 and still happening in PT 12. It wouldn't always happen, and seemed to sometimes be fixed, then come back. This has been happening the last few years. Recently when using Pro Tools Field Recorder Workflow in Post Production, I suddenly had an assertion error(Attachment 01) crop up when trying to ...more »

Match Tracks issue on import of 23.976 OMF's from FCP 7

In a nutshell: OMF's originating as 23.976 from Final Cut Pro 7 are seen in Pro Tools' Import Session Data window as 24 frame metadata. Importing a single OMF into a Pro Tools session that is set to 23.976 seems to work just fine. BUT! if the OMF comes in 2 contiguous parts and the Match Tracks feature is employed in the Import Session Data window in overlay mode, the second part of the timeline (the new material) does ...more »

Add an "Automatically Copy Video Files on Import Preference"

I want to be able to drag and drop a video and have it copied to the session videos directory. Better yet, there should just be one catch-all preference that allows you the option to copy all file types (audio, video, etc) on import. Pro Tools makes it incredibly difficult to make sure you've copied all files to your session. It should be MUCH easier to avoid missing files in Pro Tools sessions. Especially hard drives ...more »

"Automatically Copy Files on Import" should be checked as default state under PT preference.

the option "automatically Copy files on Import" under processing in PT preference should be Checked as default. Because PT's default is to have this option unchecked, sometimes when PT crashes and it's database corrupts and preference resets, it will unchecked this option without the user's consent. Today, I suffered a crash in PT that corrupted my preference and I wasn't aware the copy file on import option was unchecked ...more »

Audition path does not work with alt monitor button on Omni IO

This is a bug when using Pro Tools 12.4 with an Omni IO. The Audition path ( in Setup > IO Setup > Output ) is set to the designated monitor output. When toggling the 'alt' button on the front panel of the Omni IO whilst in the import audio dialog window, the auditioned audio will remain being sent to the Main speakers connected to physical output 1 and 2 in stead of the Alt speakers, in my case connected to output 7 ...more »
