    Replace audio clip and keep volume automation

    Sorry if it is a RTFM thing...

    I don't remember how to replace an audio clip with another of the same duration (and bitrate etc.), while keeping the volume automation (and keyframes) already present on the track.

    Thanks

    Don't apologize, I think that's more of a WTFM thing. But IF it does exist and is written in the manual, please share the location.

    Hi!

    Since MC or SYM 6.5 you are able to copy and paste audio keyframes. So you can cut the new audio clip in your sequence, select and copy all the keyframes from the clip you want to replace, paste them to the new clip and delete the old clip.

    Maybe that could be the thing you're looking for.

    Regards

    Flo

    Just take care that the new pasted keyframes will start at the playhead so either mark an in at the first keyframe point or easier add a keyframe at the very start of the clip. Then the subsequent copy and paste will drop them back in the same position (otherwise typically your keyrames all get shifted left)

    There isn't a right click copy or paste just use the ctrol-C ctrl-V

    If the clips are the same duration, you could Batch Import and it'll replace the media, leaving your timeline adjustments in tact.
