Default Colour of tracks gets darker???

Hi,

something strange just happened.

I switched to the Mix window, did some stuff, then back to the edit window and the colour is "greyer" than before??? Itīs as dark as I hilighted the whole session. When I really highlight something, it goes back to normal.

Whatīs that about? Actually itīs gone, I donīt know when or how, but what did that mean?

what do you mean? I donīt think the visible surface of ProTools needs to save itself energy^^.

The same thing happened just 2 days ago during recording. Also went away without any doing of me.


What is this?

If you could be a bit more specific, perhaps we could help?

What version of PT, OSX, etc? Could you provide a screenshot of what exactly is happening? Do you receive any error messages during/after?

If nothing is missing or corrupt... it could simply be a graphical glitch that most likely isn't doing any harm at all.

Iīm running ProTools 8 on OS 10.5.8

Like I said, the screen looks like I highlighted the whole session with the selector tool.

But if I do highlight something, the highlighted section looks like it should look normally (brighter). This occured twice now and went away automatically. Once it happened during recording.


Iīm very curious what this is. This song is full of plugins, some automation with over 30 tracks actually. Maybe that has something to do with it.

well, just select something with the selector tool and you have the screenshot :). Nothing more special about it, I just canīt call that situation up as I wish since it appears randomly.

I get this from time to time. It seems random and I thin it is a bug that has to do with the relationship with selections and zoom level on the edit window. I posted a couple videos as an example. One video shows the bug appearing when scrolling and another video shows it when clicking to change the selection.
