    Audio Key-frame Annoyance

    So I just installed the new 6.5 Avid Media Composer and I'm having a certain issue with adjusting key frames. It will let me select one and move it around just like normal, however, when I do an in and out to select multiple keypoints it'll still only move the one that I click on. This used to work for 6.0 so I have no idea why it wouldn't now.
    Is there some secret option I have to click somewhere for it to work or something?
    I'm stumped, please help.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but that, I was informed, is a deliberate design change. See this thread for the full back story.

    That is unfortunate, I hope they decide to put it back in.

    Thank you for the speedy response however.

    Re: Audio Key-frame Annoyance

    I wonder who they spoke to regarding changing this feature? Of all then things they could change to improve, I kind of liked being able to adjust a range of keyframes using in/out - oh well - the ultimate adaptive machine will compensate (end-users, that is).

    Re: Audio Key-frame Annoyance

    I have escalated the following two keyframing issues to Avid engineering:

    1)  Marks are no longer allowed to define an audio keyframe region. Only lassoing left to right will define a region. I was told this is a deliberate design change. IMO and that of many Forum members, that is a mistake and marking to define a region needs to be restored.

    2)  In previous versions, when creating an audio keyframe at the same position across multiple audio tracks, with all relevant tracks active, grabbing and adjusting one of those keyframes would adjust all keyframes. This functionality no longer works - each track's keyframe must be adjusted separately, or very awkwardly lassoed. If this is another deliberate design change, it should also be negated and original functionality restored.

    Please put ALL keyframes back the way they were before verson 5.

    Thank You

    Re: Audio Key-frame Annoyance

    Larry, I'm still on MC4, so it doesn't work for me, but I can see that lassoing a bunch of keyframes, for instance all the lower ones in the clip, leaving out the high ones, (if that is the way that it works), then adjusting only those would seem like a benefit.

    Re: Audio Key-frame Annoyance

    Just to be clear, I'm not at all opposed to the lassoing technique. In certain circumstances it can be a more preferred way to go. But in other circumstances, marking is the preferred and faster method. I am simply saying to add that capability into the features set WITHOUT eliminating the feature to use mark in and out to define a region. Add new features, but DO NOT remove existing ones. I fail to see why the two techniques cannot peacefully coexist.

    Completely agree, that's after all, one of Avid's great assets, that there are many ways to achieve an effect!
