RECORD AUTOMATION :
You only need to enable record on Audio Track if you want to record actual audio to that track.

To record automation it's enough to have Automation Write enabled, then just have the playback running and adjust the parameter(s) to have it recorded:

CLIP AUTOMATION
"A" is the default shortcut to open automation panel, then switch to Clip mode.
Here I'm scaling an absolute automation with a multiplicative one spanning 4 loops:
Image
...you can, just use additive clip automation. Then it's added to whatever value current parameter has (whether it's fixed, automated or hand-controlled) and it copies and loops with the clip. The lighter blue solid area is the final composite parameter value. You always have to pay attention which automation mode (clip or track) you're in and what's the state of "free running" and "loop" buttons is :
Image
...and you can combine both additive and multiplicative CLIP automations to work as modulation around current value of the parameter :

These are great, thanks for collating (someone should make this sticky and make sure all new ones are added!)

Its a fabulous way to make a manual, Bigwig should do this- just a brief description of what its is and what its for and then animated pictures- Videos are often too long (loads of stuff you already know to get to 20 seconds on the bit you want...), books take too many words to describe something visual ...this is the future of on line manuals for software and it is exactly what I have done for a software package my company sells!

What about adding animated gifs in the help section inside Bitwig itself?

Pro tip: GIFs are zoomable, unlike youtube videos.

These are cool, this should be more of a thing, super short tips and don't even have to watch a youtube vid... nice!
In the future there will be robots!
