Snapshots enhancements #77
From swstim on March 19, 2010 14:18:53
I would like snapshots to handle even more states:
Track record options: arm, input, mon type, mon media, rec source
Perhaps start going down the road of item states, too...

I think I've asked this before Tim but would there be a way of including Vol and pan automation in a snapshot like we have for fx envelopes (possibly as a tick box in the snapshot window)? :)
It would be pretty useful but no rush as usual!
Still loving the RMS stuff!

Haha MBN, I already had the envelope stuff written when you added that comment!
I've implemented native envelope and pan law snapshoting in v2.1.0 #3. I've released this as prerelease https://code.google.com/p/sws-extension/downloads/list as it needs testing! r353 There's still plenty of possible snapshot improvements so I'm leaving this open.

Works so far so good! :)
I had an idea, if at somepoint you can save all automation for a selected amount of tracks within a TIME SELECTION ;) then we would have a powerful "takes" system for automation :)
Just a wild idea!
Imagine a folder structure like this:
In a case where everything in both songs are equal (the tracks, FX, track volumes, pans, etc) it could be handy to sync the parameters in both projects automatically, or at least from the same source (in the case, the exported snapshot). The proposed feature is basically an "auto import external snapshot" + "auto apply snapshot at project load". Alternatively, the possibility of the snapshot not being local to the project, but linked from a exported snapshot could help enormously to sync the same parameters in multiple projects. For sure, the external feature should have a checkbox to differ from project's local snapshots and externally linked snapshots.
I hope that you understand what I mean, and I hope you consider my request too. Thanks!
