Occasionally when opening up a session that had previously worked; I get the message that there is video in the session with a missing codec, even though it had previously worked. Often shutting down protools and restarting solves this, This only seems to happen with DNxHD codec files. I've never had it happen with Prores or h264.
"Split into Mono is great, but the opposite would be excellent too. I do it all the time and a quick select and combine feature would be a real time saver.
When a clip has a cleared section in the middle, and the remaining portions of the clip have not been moved, it used to be that you could select the cleared area and use the Heal Separation command on it. See image. My workflow has always been: 1. Click in the gap 2. Ctrl-Tab (Windows) to set the selection to the previous boundary (the end of the first clip) 3. Shift-Tab to select to the following boundary (the start ...more »
I thought we straightened this out. I should not have to turn on automation to send midi volume controller data to a midi instrument. Or any controller data.Modulation and sustain, among others, are not affected by automation. Nor should the rest of the data (unless options could be set). Please remove any midi controller data that currently exists in Pro Tools Automation tree
A plugin insert section on an audio track that commits any processing while recording. Currently, the only way to commit processing while tracking in protools in to have the audio come in on an auxiliary track, apply eq, compression, etc, and then bus it to an audio track to be recorded. This takes up space in the box and is a hassle that can sometimes cause confusion in the middle of a hectic recording session. This ...more »
ReVibe II - one of my favourite reverbs for post - is a performance hog. Each instance is always "surround under the hood". Having a multi-mono instance on a 5.0 aux (to follow the input panning) results in 5x the load of a normal 5.0 instance. Even a mono instance calculates all surround legs (see parameters), only to output a mono downmix. Please update for proper scaling, maybe giving a true mono-only instance. Also, ...more »
Sometimes a terminal suddenly pops up.
As it looks, it caused by some bug in the interaction between OS and Avid apps.
Maybe it's the Application Manager that causes all this trouble?
I see that some users have the same issue:
If you open a session on a server share or an Isis, Pro Tools creates a temp file (session_name.tmp) in the same folder as the session. In this temp file it places the net name and IP address of the computer which has the session open. If another user attempts to open this session they are informed that it is open already by computer xxx and can only be opened "Read Only" . In our view this is logical and correct ...more »
With the artist mix series of controllers, when you scroll into view on the mix or edit window of ProTools (either by right clicking on track name and selecting or by holding down SHIFT/CONTROL and clicking) the controller follows the selection and puts the track on the far left. This is not the behaviour on the S3. It would be great if it was.
Hello.. Since i'm using Pro Tools 12 can't open my old sessions created with sd2 files.. Really this was a very bad decision. I need to work with some old projects and I doesn't have PT 10 or 11 anymore.. I don't understand why Avid has removed this essential function in PT 12 knowing that the whole Pro Tools community has a lot sessions with sd2 files.. I hope Avid will review this issue.. Tks !
The "Audio Suite" drop down menu should have a preferences section to select unwanted plugins & permanently remove them. This feature could also be placed directly on the plugin itself when opened; with a simple click of yes to "Are you sure you want to permanently remove "X Plugin." And it will never be seen again on the list of plugins. Currently a user has to navigate through their system, scan all their program ...more »
It would be pretty great to be able to spill memory locations to either the top or bottom row of OLEDS.
Using them as straight up Verse/chorus etc. markers or for recalling window configs etc would be extremely powerful.
When bouncing to a Quicktime movie in 5.1 in PT 12.8.0 and lower, the track order is wrong when playing the resulting file in other applications. It appears as though Film order us being used, and SMPTE/ITU order is expected.
When Pro Tools is not in focus, soft keys that use a "EUCON" commands work fine but soft keys that use a "key" command send that keystroke to the in focus application. So in a real world example as I am spotting to picture using the dock transport command with a spreadsheet ans the in focus application works great, however any softkey that uses a "key" command sends those keys to the spreadsheet application. My feature ...more »
Maybe these are features but I understand them as bugs. First off the default state of the 12 soft keys on the dock surface is un-lit basically disabled, this is confusing why they seem to have no default function and no unique assignment possible from the EuControl app. They are basically dead. This complicates the user experience and trouble shooting this issue. Pressing the bottom right soft key on the Doc surface ...more »
