Import Session Data "Match Tracks"- option to match based on waveforms instead of track names

It is my understanding that the match tracks function currently only looks at track names (correct me if I'm wrong). There are times when tracks get renamed in a newer version of the session, but the waveforms stay the same. The match tracks function no longer works in cases like this. This is very common, especially when creating a BWAV ADM from a .atmos file. When you create a PT session from a BWAV ADM, it gives ...more »

Add a Drag From Browser Preset

Please make this recall-able in the Import Session Data dialog, or allow over-riding of Zoom Presets in sessions ...more »

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 »
