    Pasting audio keyframes from one clip to another

    I'm using MC 3.0 on a Mac.

    Several music clips were captured at 44.1 sample rate, and have to be converted to match the 48 sample rate that everything else is in.

    I know how to create a new clip with the changed sample rate, but it would be great to take all the attributes from the old 44.1 clip and apply them to the new 48 clip.  i.e.  I've added quite a few audio keyframes and adjusted the volume up and down where appropriate.  It's a pain to have to apply each and every new keyframe to the new clip and remix.

    Is there a simple way to do this?  I've come up empty in my searching so far.

    You could try deleting the media files for the clips in your timeline, then batch capture them using the new sampling rate - you may need to specify this in your user capture settings - I'm not at my Avid right now to walk it through. After the batch capture, the media will be restored to your timeline with all keyframing intact.

    Actually yes, that's a good idea.  I thought there might be a way to literally copy all the keyframe attributes in the clip and paste them since the new clip would be the exact same length. 

    But, I'll do the batch capture route.  That should work.  Thanks for your reply.

    There actually is a way to copy and paste keyframes as a group for video effects using the advanced keyframer interface, but AFAIK, not for audio. This video has a section on it.

    When selecting Change Sample Rate on your master music clips, if you select Delete Original Media (ie trash the 44.1 media files and keep the new 48 only), I think that will do what you want. All of your volume, pan, and keyframe info should remain the same, and the clips in your timeline will switch automatically to the new 48k media files.
