Default Find you audio file

When you in a project editing, resizing an audio file for example and lets say this audio file is " audio 1" then you obtain another file called "audio 1-01" or something like that you know....

Question:

1/ Can we find those 2 files thrue spotlight if they are on the disk of course ?

Coz i dont know why but i dont always find them, whereas im sure they are on this disk...

Default Re: Find you audio file

If by 'resizing' you mean trimming, then this creates a new clip in Pro Tools but does not create a new audio file - it's just a pointer to the audio in the original file. If you process the file in any way (audiosuite, render elastic, etc) then you will get a new file. You can always view filename in the clip bin to see if it's a different parent file.

If all your disks are spotlight-enabled, then you should be able to find them through spotlight. That said, using a dedicated find utility such as Easyfind or Findanyfile may be a better way to go. You can also always view and reveal file locations from the session browser window.

best,
rich
