Pack Take Folders and Retain Track/Region Color?

Wed May 05, 2021 12:13 pm

Is it possible to pack a take folder without Logic automatically adopting the top track/region's color for all the takes?

Yes, I already know how to Auto-Colorize Takes during recording. I imported these files from another DAW/engineer and would like each take to remain easily identifiable by color.

Unfortunately this doesn't seem possible, apparently the region colors are lost when packing the take folder. :(

Try putting the regions on other tracks. Pack the folder with empty tracks (no regions). Then move regions to the packed folder. I don’t know if this works but it would seem weird if logic changed color of regions just when moving them.

These are Take Folders, not traditional folders. Therefore, it is impossible to pack an empty track without regions.
