Re: The Never Ending Battle with ProTools 10

Not sure if this is the same problem but I have never been able to get my mBox2 Pro to work with my 2012 MacBook Pro on first boot up. I always get the "increase buffer" error. Here is my work...

Re: MComposer Automation Not Translating to PT

Ah, thank you for the confirmation. I was beginning to worry it was just us. :-)

Glad there is a fix in the works.

@ Ceri - yes, we are seeing it in large and small differences in several AAF's.

Re: MComposer Automation Not Translating to PT

Thanks C.

I had tried that as well and it does not work either. Here's is a typical problem: AAF has a region volume graph = -∞dB but clip gain = 0dB. In PT9, that region comes in at 0dB but in...

Re: MComposer Automation Not Translating to PT

it is MC v5.0.4. and yes, I seem to be able to get clip gain or auto moves but not both.

From my testing, it seems PT9 does more of a "coalesce" of the two types of automation rather than what...

MComposer Automation Not Translating to PT

We are seeing errors and omission in the automation from the picture editor's avid being translated to a PT10 session. We have tried all the combinations in the AAF import window but none seem to be...

Re: PT 10 with CPT: Field Recorder Matching?

Since PT8, the key combos have changed. Try APPLE+OPTION when using the selector tool and the field recorder options should be there.

That threw us the first time we tried.

Re: MBox Pro (3rd Generation) and PT10

This happens regularly with my mBox2 Pro and certain FW800 drives. I've found zapping PRAM resets the buss and they all play nice together again. However, if I reorder or add drives, it can come...

Re: PT10 Waveforms

If anyone is interested, turns out these were files created on a recorder set to DPE mode. DPE files behave differently than non-DPE and are subject to WF recalc at odd times. This is a behavior that...

PT10 Waveforms

Digi, are BWAV embedded waveforms created under PT9 compatible with PT10?

We are moving our sessions over to server volumes to take advantage of the new capability to work off a server but PT10 is...

Re: matching alternates doesn't work in PT9?

Doh! There appears to be a new function added in PT9.02 and beyond where you select the region while holding CMD+OPT and you are presented with a "Field Recorder Workflow" menu. This seems to have...

Re: matching alternates doesn't work in PT9?

Ditto here. It works until you put a splice in the region then it doesn't want to know about the alternates any longer. Needless to say, that makes it unusable. Anyone find a workaround?

Re: no more embedded waveforms?

Thanks for the reply Frank; that does seem to be the case. I have not been calculating waveforms after creating the files, as I was assuming they all ready had them embedded. What has me confused is...

Does Protools no longer embedded waveforms of any kind in broadcast wave files? is it stored in the file in a new place?

A little history...we (like many of you) have database software that looks...

Re: Properly exporting a time code stamped WAV

Not sure where your problem lies but here's how we usually make an export with correct TC and frame rate:

Set session start and frame rate as you want them to be (01:00:00:00 @ 23.976)

Re: Pt 8.1 & mxf

Ah that's where the fun begins! :-) Once we converted the entire dailies library to BWF, we would then convert each individual reel AAF to a PT session, referencing the MXF files. Then Save Session...

Re: Pt 8.1 & mxf

Hey Markus,
We may have had a similar problem when we converted from MXF to BWF. After several attempts, we came up with a method that worked well. What we did was create an empty session; drag MXF...

Re: Pt 8.1 & mxf

Good on you Frank, thanks for the info. Considering the pain we went thru with MXF, I would say having the audio files in one big folder is a small price to pay. Just my 2¢

Re: Pt 8.1 & mxf

Sorry Frank, don't know the answer to that one. I do know that the Avid can handle both mixed in a project. The show we are on now has a few dozen MXF files (second unit...injested incorrectly) which...

Re: Pt 8.1 & mxf

Yes that is indeed what I'm saying. We are on PT 8.0.4 and it definitely did not fix the problem. Our local digi rep said that MXF contains vastly more metadata than WAV and that was the cause of the...

Anyone know if PT 8.1 has improved performance when using MXF media? Sorry, can't upgrade to just yet to find out (we're mid-show) and the release notes are mum about the subject.
