How do I stop Live creating unwanted automation points when I move a clip?
I do a lot of music editing in Arrangement View. Whenever I move a clip forwards or backwards in its track, if it already has automation points, Live adds unwanted extra automation points at the start and end of the clip.
For example, say I add an automation envelope which keeps an effect's mix level at zero for most of the clip, then raises it smoothly in time for the last note. Two automation points, one at zero and one at the final mix level. If I then move the clip, Live will add more automation points at the start and end of the clip. I end up with my effect mix turned up for the whole length of the song until the clip starts, then down to zero during the clip, raised for the last note as I intended, but then immediately lowered to zero again at the end of the clip. For effects that sustain, this is obviously inappropriate.
I spend a lot of time just removing these extra automation points. Is there a way to turn off this behaviour? I can't lock the envelopes because I need the automation to move with the clips.
