So I have no more patience - I come to ask for help:
Lets say I have tons of automation tracks for faders/ effects/ vst, so the whole sequencing window is busy with automation, my problem is this: if I click anywhere accidentally to return back to sequencing window from a mix console or piano roll and land on any automation, it CREATES AN UNINTENTIONAL POINT in that track. For example: say there is a volume fader set at certain number . I accidentally click on its automation and make it some other number. then i delete the point realizing the mistake, but the fader still stays at the new value so that creates a problem bc I don’t remember what was the original value of the fader. My question is How to enable automation edit only when i want to?? lets say i just want all the automation to display in the window, and just scroll thru it or selecting other tracks without affecting the automation. I know most of you who gonna say “F6 - hide all”. To that I say, reread my post. The problem right now is I have multiple tracks, and then group faders, those group faders have no automation. but if I try to select tracks by using the mouse (click and hold then drag to select) and starting at those group tracks, the F****ng automation point is created!!
maybe this will help. I come from Fl stuido( a long time ago) and it had actual automation tracks, that did not span thru the whole seq window. it was kind of bound to its little box( or however big u made it) and thus only changes to that automation u could make is by going into that box. Pretty much Id like to know if there is a way to disable any automation edits, and enable it only when the potential track is selected ( in the track panel)
Also another issue: lets say I created an automation for a track, how can I edit only that track’s automation without affecting other automation (above and below)? Meaning, if I want to affect only THIS fader’s automation, how to isolate it from the rest, bc the points of automation are extremely close to the upper and lower borders of other tracks, and when u try to select those points, sometimes again - u accidentally click the other track’s( above or below ) automation and again create an automation point that u did not want.
P.S:excuse the grammar. I’m trying to make a track, and half the time fighting with automation.
