We've all auditioned our carefully set up Edit selection only to have it disappear when we hit stop. If you don't know why its happening it can be very frustrating. In this free video tutorial, brought to you with the support of Avid, Pro Tools Expert Team member Julian Rodgers shows why it happens, how you can get your edit selection back and why the thing causing this problem is one of the fundamentals of Pro Tools.
Edit Selections And The Insertion Point
In this tutorial, Julian explains the relationship between the insertions point and edit selections. In a way they are the same thing and once you understand this and the different playback behaviours in Pro Tools the "problem" of disappearing edit selections isn't such a problem any more.
Clips, Subclips and Files
Julian then goes on to demonstrate the relationship between clips and files and shows a possible reason why the link between the clips list and the timeline might stop working as expected.
