At 8:22 it shows a function called "Reaper Media Item Take Envelope" which seems to be item-based automation. This function does not seem to exist anymore. Unless I am mistaken, that function was already pretty close to what Automation Items do. And it was different from today's Take Envelopes because it was not limited to Volume, Pan, Pitch and Mute. Does anyone know how that function compared to Automation Items and why it was removed?
The function shown in the video still exist, and it's different from this whole thread is all about.
Take envelope is NOT limited to Volume, Pan, Pitch and Mute, you can also automate FX parameter if there was an FX on its correspond ITEM
as shown as video above.
OTOH Automation Item is an item in the envelope lane contains automation envelope to control track or FX parameter on its correspond TRACK
