Understood. I had a particular situation that I don't have time to explain right now that Rich Breen's suggestion led to solving. All good!

Oh. I wish you'd explain; we all continue to learn from stuff like that. Especially from experienced pros.

OK,

I had a fairly complicated rock mix, lots of tracks grouped and routed through routing folder tracks. All good, folder tracks are amazing!

Then the client asked if I could commit all of the tracks and send the ProTools session to them for archiving purposes and in case they wanted to play around with alternate mixes.

Before folder tracks, I would've just had stereo sub groups. If I committed all of the tracks including the stereo subgroups, and when I committed I had ProTools deactivate and hide the original tracks, what I would be left with is all of the tracks with their plug-ins rendered, and also the stereo subgroup would be rendered as a stereo file. Then I would mute all of the tracks that were feeding the sub mixes so that when the client opened the session it would playback like the original mix.

When I tried this same workflow with folder tracks, because I had told ProTools to deactivate and hide the source tracks after committing, the tracks feeding the folder tracks were also hidden, because that's what tracks do when they are inside of a folder Track and you hide it.

Rich Breens Idea of duplicating the routing folder track worked because the duplicate folder track does not have the tracks feeding it within the actual folder, but the signal is just routed through it. Follow?

And then it occurred to me, duh, I could simply solve the problem of taking the tracks that were feeding the routing folder track and just move them to the top level so that they didn't hide when the original folder track with him..


Aren't you glad you asked? lol
