Too many mix engineers receive sessions with missing audio files all because the non-pro users do not know that the simple preference "Automatically Copy Files on Import" is not, by default, checked on their system.
The option to import audio to selection on the selected track.
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 »
As it currently works, matching tracks and importing gives you of course plenty of options, but updating the... more »
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.
There are times when tracks get renamed in a newer version of the session, but the waveforms stay the same.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 »
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 »

Can we add another modifier to make it copy and import and put the video in the video files folder.
Bringing in OMF/AAF's all day would be way less tedious if I could import them they way I work with them. No volume automation. Only clip gain. You can currently import only with, or without volume automation.
The new Batch Renamer tool is quite handy but I still need to import clip names via excel or doc. Would also be neat to do this for tracks if needed.
I think that this behavior is not the correct way it should work, and it should be adjusted by default to NOT importing / saving the automation, but the plugings,... more »
Pro Tools HD v12.4 will not properly import / update a track that has a plugin disabled in the session.
I would love to be able to setup a preset track with volume, panning and plugins and save the track settings as a preset that would be used when dragging in a piece of audio from the browser. For example, I would use a Drag From Browser Preset that where the volume of any new tracks were already turned down -12 dB.
