I think the reason to be able to skip the montage master on the superclip render would be the same as the master section. I have all my final limiting on the montage master now rather than master section so the settings are easily stored right with the montage.
The other day, I mastered a CD and the client came back with a request to loop the end of the last song and fade it out to end the CD. I easily made the loop in the montage, and then made a superclip of the new arrangement to be able to add a fade to the entire clip. Since I have Ozone 5 on the montage master I don’t want it to be rendered into the super clip and then again on the final DDP.
I had to disable the montage master when making the superclip and then enable it again after the superclip is made.
This isn’t a huge deal but I was surprised that creating a superclip made the audio go through the montage master. I only noticed because Ozone 5 takes a lot of time to render compared to Waves. I wonder if other people realize that when they render superclips, it’s going through the montage master.
I think being able to exclude the superclip render from the montage master is just as important as the master section. I think typically when making a superclip, you only want the effects that are on the clips themselves to be involved because they will eventually be going through the montage master or master section again.
