In the first part we looked at the options when you right click on a clip in the Pro Tools Edit Window. In this part we see what happens when you add modifier keys when you right click.
Using the Command (Mac) or Control (Windows) modifier keys and right-clicking on a clip brings up a slightly different contextual menu. The reason for this is so that you don’t loose your selection when accessing this version of the contextual menu.
The new elements are….
Rename – This brings up the Rename Clip dialog box so you can rename the region. It would be nice if this one was also in the normal right-click contextual menu.
Move Clip …. To Selection Start - These, along with the Snap To options on the normal right-click menu, are really useful options and saves having to remember a series of complex shortcuts. In the example we can see what will happen to the ‘Vocal’ clip when we use the ‘Pad’ clip as the Selection. Of course the selection could be the cursor location instead.
Make your Selection first and then Command (Mac) or Control (Windows) and right-click on the ‘Vocal’ clip, then choose the appropriate selection from the set of three options. This shows Move Clip Start To Selection Start….
This shows Move Clip Sync To Selection Start
and this shows Move Clip End To Selection Start.
Elastic Audio - In Warp view you can Right-click anywhere in the clip and select Add Warp Marker from the pop-up. If there is an Edit selection, Warp markers will be added at the selection start and end.
To delete a Warp marker within a selection, Right-click and then select Remove Warp Marker from the pop-up menu.
