Pyramix Fade Editor Issue

Postby justinbalch » Thu Feb 21, 2013 06:38

I'm doing a source to destination editing project in Pyramix (version 6.2.4 SP1 build 7777). I set my cross fade memory #1 to a duration that I wanted to use frequently. Now every time I click the recall memory 1 button or use the keyboard shortcut I've assigned to zoom to my first fade preset, the fade editor zooms all the way out (so far out that I can't see anything - the fade in or fade out clips). In fact, no matter which recall button I press, it zooms to this unusable duration. If I just open the fade editor it also zooms to this position. Everything was workable until I tried to customize the zoom memory preset. Argh.

Any help?

Thank you so much.

First of all, it's easy to get a little mixed up here - you have to set things up in five different areas of Pyramix: the Main Timeline window, the Crossfade Editor window, the main Edit menu, the main View menu and the Settings. Usually, once you get things the way you want them, it's possible that you don't revisit these settings again for years, and then it can be tough to remember what all has to be set up, and where everything is.

Can you clarify things a little for me? What exactly do you mean when you say you "click the recall memory 1 button or use the keyboard shortcut I've assigned to zoom to my first fade preset..."? What recall buttons are you referring to - the ones on the left side of the Crossfade Editor?

Clicking on one of those will not recall your preferred crossfade. To have a default crossfade applied every time you perform an Auto-Edit, you need to set that up and store it in the X-fade Presets over on the right side of the Crossfade Editor window (X Presets > Save Preset > Save as Default) AND you need to enable "Auto Crossfade" in the main window's Edit Menu. "Memory" is temporary, for use with the current edit only; Presets are available globally, for every edit in every project, ever. Sorry if this is old news.

As for the zooming issue, I'm guessing that you wanted something a little more zoomed in or out than what is applied if you set the Crossfade Editor's Display > Zoom setting to "Auto Crossfade/Free" (personally, I'm fine with this setting but I will often adjust the zoom one way or the other before I'm done finessing an edit). To that end, you would have had to set up a certain zoom amount, and stored it in the Main View Menu > Zoom > Set Preset 1, and then set that as the default behaviour of the Crossfade Editor's Display > Zoom pop-up menu on the right hand side - am I right? That's a lot of steps, and it's possible you missed something inadvertently. It's important to remember that when you store a zoom preset, you're storing the current zoom setting from the Main Timeline window, not the Crossfade Editor. Perhaps you thought you were storing one zoom setting, when in fact you were storing another...
