Default from logic to protools

Does anyone have any great ways of transfering a session from logic audio to protools . I've done this before by just doing a digital transfer (aes) for a sesson that was only audio but I think that there might be a better way (I hope). That way you loose region info,file names, etc. I will also probablly need to go back the other way when i am done.
any help is greatly appreciated

Importing/Exporting Audio Regions.

We all know that standards are useful. For example, standard MIDI files
enable quick transfer of MIDI data to and from any MIDI application . On
the subject of Audio Regions used in the song structure of an integrated
Audio and Midi application or stand alone audio application it seems the
only thing that is standardized is the audio file format. Unfortunately
being able to export / import 'Audio Arrangements' from one application to
another has not met face to face with the idea of standardization.
have and are being made by many leading manufacturers but nothing has
to the forefront.

On the bright side of this equation, Logic Audio Platinum 3.5 is now able
to import and export time stamp information via SDII regions. This feature
makes the task of moving compositions between applications, such as
Logic Audio and Pro Tools, much simpler, because it allows you to easily
restore the time position of a region once it's imported.

This feature will work with any application that can read and write time
stamps to SDII regions. The following procedure is for moving files
Logic Audio and Pro Tools.

Logic Audio -> Pro Tools

In Logic:
1. In the Audio window, select the audio files that you wish to export.
you are moving all the files and regions of a song, simply 'Select All')
Select Audio Window -> File -> Export SDII Regions. Logic will time stamp
the regions according to their position in the Arrange window.

NOTE: If the same region is used multiple times in the song, then Logic
will use the position of the first instance of the region. For this
you will generally want to make all regions in your song "individual
regions" before starting this procedure. Use Logic's Arrange -> Functions
- -> Convert Regions to Individual Regions menu option to perform this

In Pro Tools:
1. Add the audio regions using the Import Audio option found in the File
Region List menus 2. Enable 'Spot' mode
3. Drag the regions onto the desired tracks in the Edit Window. When the
Time Stamp window appears, load the Original Time Stamp value into the
Start Point window and Hit 'OK'

The region will now be located at the same position as it was in Logic

Pro Tools -> Logic Audio

in Pro Tools:
1. Select all the Regions in the Region bin that you wish to export 2.
Select "Export Region Definitions" from Region List menu

in Logic:

1. Select Audio Window -> File -> Add Audio file to add the files that
exported from Pro Tools 2. Select the files you've imported in the Audio
window and select File -> Import SDII Regions. The regions that now
time stamped info we'll show up with small clock icons to the left of
name. 3. Drag the Regions into the Arrange window, onto the desired
4. With the Regions selected, choose the Functions -> Regions to Original
Record Position

NOTE: If the region has both an Original and User Time Stamp (see Pro
Documentation), then Logic will ask which time stamp you wish to use.
