Default Adding silence to tracks

Howdy. My band just recorded a few songs in the studio and, after a rough mixdown, left with a DVD of .wav files and the PT files to organize them. But I am much more fluent in Vegas Video than PT. My question is: some of the tracks (such as overdubs) don't start at the beginning so I can't easily sync them up in my other program. Can I easily add silence or lengthen the track so that it starts at the beginning of the song and then re-save that as a .wav file? Then I can just pop them in to Vegas at the beginning and work from there. Thanks for the help. Johnny

If you have access to a PT rig, then open up the sessions and consolidate your tracks from the session start. In this way you can use them in any DAW and not worry.

Highlight the wav from the end to 0:00.
Choose to Consoladate the track.
