This requires writing initial parameters at all times. That's how we start each and every project.
When working with Virgin Territories, in the end we Always "close gaps", finishing/completing the automation on each track, from start to end.
Any parameter that is not "locked in" with automation is a potential hazard when you re-open, or someone else reopens a project.

Ok, I am good with Post -Production, I am a scoring mixer doing really large Scoring for German cinema movie. I do this in ProTools, which I know since over 20 Years. It is not so easy to become as good in another program quickly:-)
All clear, ok, I set the initial value, it is not a big deal, but what is the reason that you could choose to not do so?

Same with virgin territory, if you have to fill everything (I did not found a way to do that quickly), why work with it? there must be an advantage that I have not seen. If I don't use it, and if I set initial values then most work as expected.
