Convert a Session Created in Pro Tools SE to Pro Tools First
 
I have been using Pro Tools SE, which came with my Avid Fast Track C600, for about five years. Recently, I decided to download Pro Tools First and give it a try, with the idea that if I liked it, I would ultimately upgrade to Pro Tools 12. I wanted to take a project I started in Pro Tools SE and move it to Pro Tools First to continue editing it. I clicked on the "Convert Session" button in Pro Tools First and pointed it to the .ptf file, but I got the following error: "Could not complete your request because magic ID does not match."

How can I access a Pro Tools SE session in Pro Tools First and continue to work on it there?

Thank you!

Do you still have SE available? If yes, I would open in SE, consolidate all the audio back to zero and export(then import the audio into a PT First session). If not, you could try creating a blank session in PTF and try to Import Session Data and bring all the tracks into a new session. wish I had more to suggest but I've been on the full version and am not clear on the limitations of SE or FIRST. They are both "teaser" programs designed to get you to buy the full version:o

Easiest if you still have access to SE. The manual for the full version of protools is available on the avid web site and has all the conversion info needed. PT first does not use Sessions it uses "Projects" so you will have to most likely create an empty Project and import .wav files of each track and rebuild it that way. If your old stuff was not saved as wav or aiff files then they may have to be opened in LE then exported as wav's. I don't remember for sure but I didn't think PT first had the conversion function available
