So when the physicist and writer Jeremy Bernstein paid him a visit to gather material for a piece for The New Yorker about a new film project he was writing with Arthur C. Clarke, Kubrick was intrigued to learn that Bernstein was a fairly serious chess player. – the result?
a 77 minute interview!

> A handy ProTools tip I discovered yesterday when conforming/patching ambiences, an alternate use for Paste Special/Repeat to Fill Selection


While this Paste Special/Repeat to Fill Selection feature is intended to repeatedly loop a region to fill a selection, it also works the other way around! So for example if you select a 3 minute long set of 10 ambience tracks and copy them, and then select a 30 second section elsewhere in your session, this Paste Special function becomes Paste to Fill Selection i.e. it pastes & truncates the overlong copied elements to fit the selection! Incredibly useful for ambiences!!!

    A very handy command indeed…I use it for all sorts but ambiences are probably the biggest one…quickly copying a recurring location’s ambience layers from a previous scene or Ben mentioned I use it a lot for copying/pasting plugin settings or general automation setting to selections!
