Thank you @Fokke and @JMichaelTX for making this macro, Michael you are amazing, very neat this can be done.
I have uploaded a couple personal updates incase it helps anyone's workflow that comes across this. I am in America so 25 is not a frame rate I ever use. Not that 29.97 makes any sense for these calculations it works fine for this. Feel free of course to change to 24 or 30 or whatever.
The macro is designed to make text selections in another editor of a mix down (bounce) that has several songs in a single session. Give to a client/artist and have them give you time locations they want edits done. With this macro is helpful for finding where 2:30 seconds into a song is by placing your cursor at the start location of the mix down (which could be at any location other than 00:00:00:00) and finding the new location in the Pro Tools timeline.
Do note if you weren't aware that Pro Tools does allow you to just press
- asterisk *
- plus +
- period .
to add or (minus sign to subtract) from a current location. So for example if you were at 00:20:55:29 and ran the above you would then be at 00:21:44:29 which would be the same location as if you just ran this macro but with out all the steps. It does save you a little time but you have to highlight selections in your text document.
