Lock session after bounce

Hello! I think it would be a nice feature in the bounce window to be able to "lock session after bounce (allows playback only)" and with an add-on tick box "continue working (rename session)" That way you can always safely come back to the same exact mix and edit as your stereo or 5.1 down mix. Eventually with a password too for protection against other unwanted changes, children, colleagues.. coffee..? :) just a thought.. ...more »

Import tracks onto existing tracks in specific timecode frame

It would be great to be able to import tracks onto existing tracks using a specific timecode region. Let's say from source session 01:59:30:00 to 02:59:30:00 into the target session from 01:59:30:00 to 02:59:30:00. Before and after these timecodes the target session is untouched.

Very handy when editing different tv show episodes in one session. Saves a lot of dragging clips to the right tracks.

Always search the same location when importing media

This is a bit difficult to explain but I import various media types from the same location when I'm importing AAF's and Quicktime movies. When I import the Quicktime movie, I have to navigate to it, which is fine. I would love the option that when I want to import an AAF next, it would first look to where I imported the movie from, rather than the last place I imported an AAF from.

Option to export aaf/omf with fades data in contrast to rendered

When sessions are exported as aaf/omf files, fades are rendered and regions/clips are created for them. This is maybe desirable if you export for video editing software or you want to retain the exact shape of the fade but is annoying for users who receive these files for their e.g. Nuendo systems.

So previously stored information is stripped from another system's AAF file when running it through Pro Tools.

Session changes sample rate to match AirPlay 44.1 limitation

I work with Radio/TV productions which (at least in sweden) are often 48k sample rate sessions. I own an Apple TV which appears in the playback engine selection as "AirPlay". I used to find it very useful to be able to listen to mixes straight from PT11.02 to my TV/Radio speakers. Until I realized that this only works with 44.1 sessions. Choosing AirPlay playback engine with a 48k session open will give you ONE warning ...more »

Use normal permissions for session folders

In creating a session, Pro Tools sets the permissions for the session root folder and any of its sub-folders such that 'Everyone' (on Windows) or 'everyone' (on Mac) is a user and may read/write the session contents. This causes usability and privacy issues. Usability issues: Windows requires confirmation of permission mask changes when transferring or modifying these session folders. Such a common task therefore ...more »

.ptx Session File Metadata + Backup Database App

Being able to quickly and easily inspect the session setup of unopened session files to find the session start time, frame rate, sample rate, bit depth, format, etc. But also be able to add metadata fields for description, client, job, external processors used, version, hard drive, etc. This could be a useful function for every Pro Tools user if there were basic fields, but could become very powerful if the ability ...more »

Show/Hide memory locations breaks after session save!

This is observed in Pro Tools 10.3.2. Don't know if it's fixed in 10.3.3? In very large sessions, it may sometimes be preferable to have only certain tracks visible while working on a certain part of a song/project. That's how I understand the idea behind Show/Hide memory locations/profiles: I work on a certain part in a song where it's nice to only see not too many tracks, to avoid confusion. So the first thing I ...more »

Set the level for the color of the meters on every sigle tracks

At the moment all the tracks are set to modulate green up to about -13dBfs, then they turn yellow and approaching the peak they turn red.

I would like to have the possibility to set up the levels on my needs, so we could have a better quick metering while mixing without opening meter plugins.

For istance at the moment I would like to turn the track meters at -20dBfs but is not possible

Improved 'Import Session Data' dialog.

I use Import Session Data constantly. I am often frustrated by its design. It uses a poor choice of GUI elements in a number of places. Example, the use of a dropdown menu for the Track Data to Import setting. Dropdown menus can support a long list of choices (but not too long) and benefit a lot from being laid out heirarchically, which serves as a quick-guide to the user to find what they wanted. What dropdown ...more »

Loading and Importing Plugins Options

It would be nice if we had an option to "force load" samples, even if we received the "running low on memory..." message. When re-loading a previously stable session I loose my plugin containers with a "warning... running low on memory" error and the only options are "ok" and "cancel" .... neither of which does me any good. But if I manually add the tracks, I can forcible load it and run a stable session. Please fix this ...more »

Allow Timecode2 to be Main Counter

I know I'm probably the 1% on here working with TImecode all the time .. but considering you can see the Timecode2 across the Main Ruler, why can I not set that as a main counter option for the Big Counter and main rulter? (Having it just as a secondary thing on the rulter is technically useless in a real-time scenario. I run an scenario where I have a 30fps stripe from a Logic rig feeding protools so it's always ...more »
