Can I Pre-set track patches?
on Mar 23, 2016 at 5:21:51 pm

I am relatively new to Avid, coming from FCP7 and X, and Premiere... I am liking it, especially Scriptsync! It is the answer to my prayers. I wish I had switched sooner just for that.

As I slowly get used Avid's more stringent track-patching methods, I find myself wishing I could assign a key command to my two main track patches that I use habitually... the "default" dialog editing patch, which (on this project anyway) is v1-v1, a1-a1, a2-a2 (pretty simple) and my "b-roll" editing patch, which is v1-v2, a1-a6, a2-a7 (sometimes more when I have lots of production audio)... I know about the "restore patch default" menu command and I can assign that to a key, and I have assigned my number keys to the corresponding track numbers (using shift-number for audio tracks), and I have "auto patch" turned on, but i find to use my track key commands I have to "turn off" (ctrl-A) all the record-side tracks and then hit my buttons to patch the tracks... hard to put into words...

In short, am i missing a way to "save" certain track patches that I use a lot, and assign them with one key stroke?

thanks

Don't think that's possible. Is that possible in Premiere? Nice idea, for sure...

not possible in Premiere... i just talked to a long-time avid editor who says not possible, but he uses the auto patching / keys-for-tracks / turn-everything-off-first then hit buttons method, but he cleverly uses Quick Keys to assign multiple tracks to one keystroke... i gotta get me some of that.

It would be possible with a macro setup, but not natively.

I have a similar setup built into my Avid Control touchscreens and my old G13 keypad... adding audio to broll, once my picture is locked.

1 key punch to select Video track 1, set an in and out point, go to in point, match frame turn all tracks off, turn on track 1 and 2 audio, switch to timeline side, turn all tracks off, turn on tracks 3 and 4 audio, perform edit.

I can jump through a fairly large timeline very quickly and swap out all the broll audio by simply placing my blue timeline marker on a clip and hitting the button.
