[SOLVED] Real-time export Ending

Question

Hi everyone, when I make fast export it works great but when in real-time export, it doesn't stop at the end of the project even with markers.

Any thoughts?

First select the tracks to export. When exporting all tracks use CTRL+A. Then set the time range.

If the export starts at the beginning of the project all that needs to be set is the end. To set the end, move the Now marker to the "end" of the project and either hit the "Set thru=Now" button in the Select Module (B in the image below)

ControlBar.10.2.png

or use the Edit > Select > "Thru=Now"  menu option

 

To change the export start is similar except position the cursor where the selection should start and use "Set from=Now" (A in the image above) or Edit > Select > "From=Now"

 

Both start and end time may also be set using Edit > Select > By Time... or by or click-drag across the timeline.

Markers don't mean anything to the export process.

When exporting without selecting time range, the export should run to the last event in the project. With fast export enabled, empty space at the end of project may not be noticed until the export is played back. When fast export is disabled, this space may be noticed during export because of the time it takes to reach the last event.

A couple of ways to avoid unexpectedly long exports:

  • Always make a time-based selection to export
  • Clean up the end of the project - usually this may be done by positioning the cursor at the "end" of the project, selecting everything to the right and deleting it. Sometimes old templates have data which cannot be deleted. In this case, consider rebuilding the template.

Thanks you, but how do you make a time-based sélection ( I'm french and I don't understand everything) Can you make a screenshot?

I was going to attempt to add to this but Steve's last post really explains it all. Its simple....

Select all/Create In and Out points, Export, done !

PS- nice touch on the French links Steve 9_9

Reminder...

I would also mark @scook last comment as the best answer (it covered everything).

It will help others in the future find solutions to their questions easily.

Thank you for all guys.

When doing the solution of Steve, I noticed I am an idiot.

On one of my tries, I have redirected the output of first track to a second one to have an audio version without VST.

For the export I have muted the second track without changing the output of the first one to Master.

So Cakewalk was awaiting some audio event but nothing was happening.

My bad ...... 🤣

Real-time export is rarely necessary. Most plug-ins can handle fast export/bounce.

Next time try freezing the track.

Do any of these export marking methods actually get saved with the project?   I haven't found a way yet to mark my beginning and end of mix for export and have Sonar remember that when I open it again.  Maybe I'm doing something wrong.

I don't want to have to ctrl-A to mark everything, select the start and end times, and then do an export every time I open the project and change a part.  I want it to remember the selected mix times when I reopen the project.

Thanks.

Unfortunately no. I hope someday Cakewalk adds a Start/End Marker so we could select project start/end times and have them saved.

but the selection process for Start/end times are shared with normal Edit/selection operations.

I find it incredible that you can't save Start/End Markers for mixes.   It seems like there could at least be a Save option to retain the current marked region or something similar.

My understanding is that the Bandlab people have been very receptive to maintaining and improving Sonar.   Is there a  way to suggest perhaps adding this 'feature' to a later release?

You can post feature request to Feedback Loop.
There is similar request already.
