June 1997-- Studio Vision Pro 3.5.4

June 1997-- Studio Vision Pro 3.5.4

This 3.5.4 release fixes the following problems:

-Choosing Edit>Capture Seq->Seq now correctly captures pan and volume events.

-Copying or "capturing" sequences now correctly pastes audio events.

-Performing edits in the Track Overview no longer causes "Illegal Write-Time" errors.

-Using SMPTE offsets of 8 hours or more now work properly when using SonicStudio hardware.

-Recording audio to an external hard drive using a Yamaha CBX and Powerbook no longer causes errors.

-Typing in note letters in the List Window now works.

Problems fixed in 3.5.2:

-Improved syncronization with DAE.
-Playing with the movie controller in the QuickTime window will now scroll SVP/VIS.
-SMPTE 29.97 drop frame in Internal sync mode no longer hangs at beginning of minutes when frame is dropped.
-SVP will no longer crash when looking for Sonic hardware on certain PowerMacs with certain System software missing.
-Running SVP with a Digidesign Bridge I/O now works properly.

Features not discussed in printed documentation:

Active In Background.

For Pro Tools III (TDM) and only for Pro Tools III there is new menu item in the "Audio" menu.  The item is called "Active In Backgound" and is between "Mix Audio On Capture" and "Audio Preferences".  You can check and uncheck "Active In Background".

If "Active In Background" is not checked, when Studio Vision becomes a background application  if Studio Vision is not playing, it will temporarily release the DAE.  This causes all TDM connections to be broken.  When you go back to Studio Vision the TDM connections are re-established.

If "Active In Background" is checked, when Studio Vision becomes a backgound application all TDM connections are maintained.  But no other application can use the DAE.

Setting Locators

Typing a number will no longer set an empty locator.  Instead,  option-number or option-click must be used.

Opening 3.0 Files with SMPTE Offsets

Because of some subtle changes and improvements in the way timing now works with Studio Vision, SMPTE offsets for existing 3.0 files are automatically adjusted when opened. Although the new offset is moved back by 20 subframes, the actual synchronization of the sequence should play back as before.
