    Lock / Unlock audio or video track

    jportell25

      I was surprised after searching the forum that this question hasn't already come up.

       

      I checked the sample and reflections but could not find any methods that would allow me to lock or unlock specific tracks, much like the setMute() / isMuted() code in the sample.

       

      Do we have this capability? Would be a huge help.

          No one has yet requested that capability.

           

          Could you provide an overview (from the user's perspective) of what you'd like to do, that you're prevented from doing by the inability to lock tracks?

            In a large team environment, sometimes a track will get locked throughout the editing process (we deal with many in-house editors, and a lot of outside contractors). My team has built macros for use in speeding up our workflow, but these macros get thrown off if a track is locked. It would be nice to target sequences in a bin, and unlock all tracks within those sequences.

             

            Its not so much the ability to lock tracks that is needed. We need access to undo the lock if some editors use that in their workflow. I am surprised to here that this is the first time it has been requested.

              That makes sense; I can imagine other applications for such powers.

               

              We're tracking the request as PPro backlog item B-125363, "Provide API for locking and unlocking tracks"
