Re: Edit window fade shape editing

Do you mean "Smart Tool Fade Adjustment"? Even with it set to "Always On", I still can't adjust the fade shape with the Smart Tool. Changing it to "Requires Command Key" means the fade shape doesn't...

Re: Old iloks

Both old iLoks were empty.
However, there was a license for PT8 on my current black iLok which happily transfered to one of the old blue/green iLoks. It has the following details:

Re: Old iloks

Historically, yes. But as I understand it I bought a full new license when I stopped using these. In my head there ought to be at least one valid PT licence on at least one of them ... albeit for a...

Old iloks

I'm about to try to shift some old PT hardware on eBay.
There were a couple of old blue/green iLoks in the box, which may have old PT licenses on them. Are they likely to be any use?

I'm creating mono WAV files around 20min long.
My system is PT12 on a Mac.

Re: Dupicating and renaming large numbers of files.

I'm currently on 12.8.1 and I think Batch is new in 12.8.2

With the exception of the Batch Rename, as opposed to Auto Rename, that's pretty much been my workflow. I've been using the AS Duplicate...

Re: Disable snap selection to grid

Re: Disable snap selection to grid

I'm not intentionally doing it.

After making a selection I am using Paste To Fill, which uses CMD. Because I have an Apple Magic Mouse, unless I move my index finger well clear of the surface of...

Re: Disable snap selection to grid

It's not the positioning of the clip that snaps to the grid, but rather the boundary of the selection you are trying to make.
Try this :
Choose Shuffle mode
Set Grid to 1sec

When I audition SFX through the Workspace or drag them into the sesison, they're getting corrupted, producing a metalic, buzzy type effect. My best guess is it's...

Re: Clips don't change colour

Consolidate doesn't fix it.
(I assume that's changing something about it coming from a multitrack file? FWIW the session isn't interleaved.)
