Join David Franz for an in-depth discussion in this video Investigating the menus, part of Pro Tools 10 Essential Training.
The menus in Pro Tools are very logically organized.…In this video, I want to give you a quick overview of what's in each menu and…touch on a few key menu items.…Let's start with the Pro Tools menu.…We can access the preferences here as well as the hide and quit Pro…Tools commands.…Notice that there's no key command for hiding Pro Tools, so you have to use…this menu item for it.…In the File menu, we have some of the usual suspects, new, open, close and all…these saving options.…
We also have the Bounce to Disk command, which you'll see is pretty…important later on,…and the import and export functions.…In the Edit menu, it's pretty logically organized as well, where we have only…editing functions like cutting, copying, pasting, clearing, even duplicating,…inserting silence, separating clips and creating fades.…In the View menu, we can customize the way that we look at Pro Tools and what we…see in each of the windows.…You can check out what we see in the Mix window or the Edit window.…
We can change our ruler displays, we can even change what our waveforms…
