Default corrupt session

Went to open a session in PT 5.0.....it started loading files, fades, plugs, etc. The, just as the eidt window would usually open....the session closed.

the Protools app. continues to run, other sessions open fine. But, this one session is corrupt. Is there anyway to save it? I'm under deadline (no surprise) and will have problems redoing this 20 minute session.

I read something in the past about using res-edit.

At this point anything is worth trying.

Default Re: corrupt session

Try using the Track Transfer.

First, create an empty session file w/ matching session start time and TC format. You don't have to have any actual audio tracks in it. Save and quit.

Second, start Track Transfer app (Comes w/ PT 5.0). Open your corrupt session file in "Session #1", then open the empty session file in "Session #2". Select all the audio tracks in session #1 (the corrupt one) by clicking on one track then shift-click/dragging on the rest. Click on Transfer button. After a few seconds, you should have a cleaner version of the same session file. If the Track Transfer gives you an error message, you may need to bump up its memory allocation by like 10 Megs.

Good luck
