In this premium video tutorial, Pro Tools Expert team member Julian Rodgers looks at the Object Grab and Separation Grab Grab Tools.
The Smart Tool combines the Trim, Grab, Selector and Fade tools into one and is so useful that most of us spend the majority of our time in it and by default that means we are usually using the Time Grab tool. There however two other Grab tools available: The Separation Grab tool and the Object Grab tool.
Separation Grab Tool
The Separation Grab tool can be used with the Smart Tool and is useful when separating clips from edit selections, particularly across multiple tracks using the P and semicolon shortcuts to move or extend edit selections vertically.
Object Grab Tool
The Object Grab Tool allows the selection of non-contiguous selections, with the addition of modifiers it is the quickest way to make complex selections on Pro Tools. See these demonstrated along with a few other selection based tips in this tutorial video.
