Jake, In addition to Steve's idea, try slating each track vocally. Grab any small recording device (pocket recorder, iphone, laptop mic) and record yourself reading the names of each of the tracks. Import the recording into the pro tools session and splice each recorded track name into its own region. At the end of the session (after the video file ends) ...

Quick answer: I don't know if it is possible. Also, Pro Tools > Nuendo and Nuendo > ProTools transfers aren't always the smoothest. If you have that working, you're over half-way there. Quick solution: Email. (ie. A1-A16 = SFX, A17 = LFE, A18-A22 = Foley, etc.) Never underestimate the usefulness of good 'ol communication in the face of technological "...

You've probably already figured this out, but in case you haven't… We are working on a project now where the picture department has used a lot clip gain. We needed to get out of that mode and into more standard volume graphing. Then we discovered under Edit>Automation the Coalesce clip gain to volume automation command (not in front of PT right now, so that ...

Pro Tools 10.3 (just released) should have solved this bug. not installed yet, so I just report the fix from the read me: Plug-Ins and Processing Audio sync issues when rendering clip gain on clips with crossfades have been resolved. (PTSW-170425) As others already wrote, I usually convert all the clip gain to Volume automation (watch out for 12 db gain ...

First of all, isn't it the mixers job to "level" the dialog? Second, you can just convert clip gain to volume automation, and then copy all of the volume auto into the Trim plugin. Third, you could wait for the update of Pro Tools that will fix this issue, but who knows when that will come out…

It sounds like your problem is that you are delivering to someone who isn't capable of running PT10 currently, yet they are tasking you with using a function of PT10 specifically to do your dialog edit. Is that correct? With the current bug in PT10 regarding rendering clip gain your options are to do what you are doing or: A: Lose the handles and "...

I don't think ProTools ever uses the last used fade type. There is a preference under "editing" to make and change the default fade type, I think thats what it always goes back to.

Depends on the interface. Normally something like this would be handled by a sync cable and a clock generator that establishes a common clock across devices. This is only available on higher end interfaces though. Using an external clock and sync cables is the only way I know of for reliable shared timecode on multiple distinct devices. Your other option ...

Select all clips in the timeline lower the clip gain a sensible amount so that when you coalesce the clip level to automation the balance still works. Insert trim plugin on all channels adding the same amount. 1:1 and will work with older or systems, although clip gain is a much better/faster tool in itself.

I suggest waiting until the software gets appropriate bug fixes, if you don't have immediate needs for upgrading. what do you think are the risks involved in upgrading? Wasting time on fighting with incomplete software. Not getting work done. I am still nervous about spending money on a system that will not accommodate what I have on the existing PT 9....

Since Pro Tools 10 can handle multiple file formats in a single session, is the issue possibly that the Pro Tools 9 session is referencing multiple sample rates?
