Join David Franz for an in-depth discussion in this video Interface and nomenclature changes, part of Pro Tools 10 New Features.
In Pro Tools 10 there are a few name changes that improve the compatibility between all of Avid software applications. The biggest change is that regions are now called clips. This applies to all usages. So you'll see that the Region menu is now called the Clip menu. Track views display clips instead of regions, and the Regions list is now called the Clips list. Clips list doesn't exactly roll off the tongue quit as well as regions list, but that's okay.
The name of the Trimmer tools got trimmed in Pro Tools 10 down to the shorter Trim tools. Also, the start and end markers for the Timeline Selections and Edit Selections are now called the In and Out Points. In this new version of Pro Tools timecode is now one word, and AudioSuite plug-ins now render instead of process their audio. In the menu bar in addition to the new Clip menu, you'll see the new Marketplace menu.
This inter-application browser, as they call it, can take you directly to Avid's web site where you can access your account, shop for plug-ins, get support and training, or upgrade your Pro Tools system. You can also access the Marketplace from the AudioSuite menu. To complete the re-branding, you'll see Avid's name everywhere, replacing all traces of Digidesign and that covers the major interface and nomenclature changes in Pro Tools 10.
