Join David Franz for an in-depth discussion in this video Viewing and manipulating tracks, part of Pro Tools 9 Essential Training.
Once you have created some tracks in Pro Tools, there's a lot of ways to…view and manipulate those tracks before, during, and after you record material onto them.…Let's start with the Tracks list.…As you'll notice, when I click a name of a track in the Tracks list, the name of…the track gets highlighted here.…That means it is selected.…If I click this circle, it will hide the track.…There are some other options here in the Tracks list menu,…where you can show only certain types of tracks, you can hide…selected tracks, and sort tracks.…
You can also move tracks around pretty easily by clicking on the name of the…track and dragging it, and the yellow line will indicate where it's going to go.…One thing I highly recommend doing is naming your tracks.…If you double-click on the name of the track, the name and comments come up, and…you can name the track.…Now if you don't name the track, and then you record onto that track, the audio…files or the MIDI regions that you record will be named the generic name shown here, audio1.…
