I'm using the Dolby Atmos Production Suite for feature film sound design prior to material being delivered to the mix room/stage/theatre.
Inserting a plugin from Ina-GRM consistently crashes Pro Tools in sessions with Dolby Renderer Send/Return plugins inserted and whilst Pro Tools is connected to a renderer in the peripherals dialogue.
My current workaround is to disconnect from the renderer (in the PT peripherals) and then load another session without any dolby send/return tracks - use the GRM tools, and then bounce to disk and import the material back into the 'main' session.
I have been in contact with Ina-GRM many times regarding this, who tell me they are still waiting for a response from Dolby. I would dearly love to see this issue addressed so that the Ina-GRM plugins can function within a Dolby Atmos Production Suite workflow correctly
I am using Pro Tools HD Native 12.8.3
Dolby Atmos Monitor 1.6.3
Dolby Atmos Renderer 2.5.3
Thank you Adam,
I look forward to more developments in the near future
Thanks for the report and files. We've recently pointed Ina-GRM to a demo version of the Production Suite and will extend a license as needed while they look into this. The Renderer' compatibility with all developers' plug-ins cannot be guaranteed and we sincerely hope a solution can be found to make these useful plug-ins work seamlessly.
In the meantime I'll forward on the log to the engineering team and see if they can spare cycles to point Ina-GRM in the right direction.
