Pro Tools Track Color Prefs

Hi! I'm sure this is a preference thing that I just can't find but I'm hoping someone here knows.

When I import multiple audio tracks into a session all the tracks import the same color. If it's just one or two this is fine, but when you get 10 or 20 I'd like them to alternate colors.

thanks!

I dont think you can import tracks with different colours automatically.

But if you go to window>colour palette. a palette comes up. you can then use that palette to change the colour of your clips, tracks, groups etc. its pretty flexible.

imho - the coloring of pro tools is horrible. sessions come up with no colors all the time .. have to redo .. this is as bad as the unbelievably short Click Samples - can rip your head off in Cans if you do not low pass the **** out of them ... i asked along time ago when they said you could use your own Click samples ... so i did BUT when i chopped them down to be small enough for the program to use they were short and harsh as well

Colors, Click, etc ... getting lost in the shuffle for more features ... stupid

just my .02

Preferences-display - play with colour preferences and choose what suits.

Back in version 7.xx the regions on tracks would automatically come up as many different colours per track depending on the voice the track was using. The various region colours were independent of track colours. It would be good if this option were available again!

Slightly OT, but I would LOVE to see PT give us the ability to select tracks based on their color.

Use groups and set colour by group.
Done.
(the group doesn't even need to do anything but that's what they are there for)

And Eucon will break up (stack) tracks by colour so if using the free Control App you can sort/select by colour.

Thanks for the idea! I'll check into it.
