How to increase the density of automation data

When I draw automation data using the pencil tool it gets thinned out a lot. I want there to be more automation points so that the curves are smoother.

In the manual (Cubase 8.0.4) it says that there should be an option called “automation reduction level” in the preferences under “editing”. I don’t see it. It’s simply not there. Can anyone help, maybe by sending a screenshot of where this option is located?


Open Automation Panel [F6], here you can set the reduction amount.
