When you split a clip, this creates 2 new clips. If the clip was in a group, the 2 new clips are not in the group anymore. If this is what you mean, then this has not changed. I don’t see this as a bug.
This feature is already available in WaveLab 7: select the desired clips, then press Alternate while moving a pan envelope.
On the related topic, WaveLab 8 has now a Pan know per clip and per Track.
What I was referring to as, being better than groups, is, using what you are calling ‘Super Clips’ made up in a separate montage. I assume you can then open up the sub-montage, make changes and then continue in the main montage.
Then the need for groups of clips becomes less important.
Related to panning… did you implement the ability to select all clips and change all of the envelope displays from volume to pan? Currently in WL7, this is broken.
Yes, this is not a bug, ok, but imagine you have a group consisting of a large number of clips. Now splitting this group will result in many single clips again. This is not very practical. Why not create two groups from the splitted original group? In most other audio software it is handled this way.
Looking forward to super-clips!
I too find the grouping behavior frustrating… when I edit a group I want it to stay a group. I’d be happy if grouped clips stayed grouped when cut or split. This has made the grouping function not so useful for me.
I do, however, love the idea of Superclips! If it works as described it will make a huge difference to my workflow. It’s an awesome concept. Ahem… I’d like to think I helped in my own tiny way…
