]We make TV promos. And quite often a promos body of a script will remain the same, but the information (day) will change.
So the way we work is to have a Vox lane, and what we call version lanes(SP for specific day, TM for tomorrow…) there are time when this information is at the top of the promo and at the end. So to eliminate the chance of pairing a tuesday with a tomorrow we Group this information together. and drag these to the Vox lane as needed.
Works great…except when automation follows events is on.
To demonstrate i have include some screen shot with exaggerated automation
the before JPEg shows a SP version(clips “vox 18 +19”) with the automation required for a promo. The after shows "automation follows events turned on, and the tx version (clips "vox 20+21) dragged up to the Vox lane . As you can see it has wiped all of the automation. It has infact travelled with the SP version.
Really annoying, and goes away when we turn off automation follows events. we want automation to follow the events we move , not everything in between.
