Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Editing automation, part of Learning Pro Tools.
- If your tracks already have automation…that was written in real time or no automation at all,…all automation can be manually edited or written by hand.…Let's take a look at how this works.…When you're in an automation view playlist,…like how we're seeing the cowbell panning information…or the shaker volume automation,…some of the edit tools operate slightly differently…form what we're used to,…For example, the grabber tool, if I select it here,…turns into a finger where I can grab hold…of each of these break points and move them around.…
Similarly, the trimmer tool,…if I go over to the standard trimmer tool,…operates slightly differently.…It looks like it's oriented in a horizontal way…and if I go and make a selection with the selector tool…across a certain range, and then I go back…to the trimmer tool, I can use the trimmer tool…to pull that range up or down vertically.…And I can do this even where there's a slope…like we have here in the panner information.…So it's effectively trimming, but in a different way…
