In an Ideal World I would like to automate 2 things
Thing1. Select a region and have the following happen region is moved ( along with all regions after it ) to the right by 5 seconds the region is selected and the selection is extended at either side by 2 seconds to include 2 sec silence a loop marker is created for this selection the marker is given the name of the region as its name.... ( or just a number )
Thing 2. All the loop markers are bounced one after the other with the name of the marker being used as the filename.
Its pretty easy to do and I think that is a good idea. I know I can make part 1 with some doing. expect there is not a way to get the marker name into the bounce name. Would have to be a region name or track name or a pre selected name.

turn tab to transient off, then selected the first region and run the script..
The Script will Copy the Region name. Highlight all regions after and nudge 5s. Then it will go back to first region and add a 1 second buffer before and after then consolidate and rename the region. After it will make a start and end marker for the selected region. After you can just repeat this sequence for as many regions as needed.
The bounce one will scroll to first marker and highlight the region at the mark and copy the region name. Then it will bounce will a 10 second delay. Repeat as need but just change the marker number to every other for each bounce. 1,3,5,7,9. Since the region is highlighted already you don't need to highlight the start end marker, but if you did you could just use . 1. Numpad . 2. Numpad 1 3. Numpad . 4. Shift Numpad . 5. Shift Numpad 2 6. Shift Numpad .
hope this helps. Looking forward to see what you can do with this..

great, Ill have a look at this later.
FYI its possible to take the marker names from the PT export session info as text command. then pass the contents onto an applescript and using text delimiters pull out the markers names I made a pro tools to DDP script using this method last year.
