I’ve come to a spot in my current project where I have to use offline processing a lot for restoration. I’m using RX effects for that, de-noise, de-reverb, de-clip.
The manual makes it clear that when you select an event in the timeline, only this event or region is being processed by offline processing.
I now selected an event and had to apply gain from the “Process” menu. It worked. It was only later that I realized it wasn’t only applied to this event only, but to the whole audio clip. And everywhere this clip was referenced by other events, the gain had been applied. How frustrating looking for all events using that clip in the project.
I then wanted to apply some de-noise to another part and when I hit preview, I would get a totally different section of that audio clip, not at all what I selected as event.
Currently, to me, it seems to be totally random. Sometimes I open a plugin for offline processing and it previews and loops the correct event of the audio clip, and sometimes it seems to just take the complete clip, no matter what I selected.
I tried directly opening a plugin from the context menu (right-click) and also opened the sample editor with the event, where the start and end were marked correctly, and opened a plugin from there. They all opened the complete clip instead of just the selected and shown event.
Anybody came across this effect, has a workaround, or thinks this has to be a bug?
