Make Zoom Presets recallable

Zoom presets (the 1-5 keys on the alpha keyboard) are currently stored on a per-session basis. I find this a tremendous pain; having to manually reset the Zoom presets to my preferred layout in any sessions I receive for mixing is a huge time waster, and they're not included in the Import Session Data dialog. Please make this recall-able in the Import Session Data dialog, or allow over-riding of Zoom Presets in sessions ...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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »
