So, It looks like from your Sgnature, you are still on 9.0.0? Why.. THere were problems with that from the beginning. Go to 9.0.5.. VERY stable for me. I have a lot going and never any problems. That is just one thing you might think about if this is the case. The other is repair permissions after you have closed everything down..i.e. all apps beforehand. Good luck!

Default Re: PT9 Import Session Data crash

I've had the bug a couple of times here where the session cannot be saved, and PT is running out of memory.

Something is causing a memory leak, which can be observed with Activity Monitor. I can't recall the exact amount, but maybe it's dangerous when PT utilization is > 2GB or something. (search the DUC, there's a thread detailing it.)

In each instance I've been able to repair the project by:

- creating a new blank session at same settings (bit depth / sample rate etc)
- import tracks EXCEPT video tracks
- fwiw, at this stage I also eliminated (by not importing) 30 or 40 tracks of old OMF import tracks which were disabled.
- re-import the most pertinent video(s)

Quite frankly, I've no idea if the video exclusion helps. I just read somewhere that it might be an issue so I tried it. I've made no attempt to isolate the issue.

Perhaps I've been lucky, but in two instances on large projects this has helped.

Also: since this time, I now only import Quicktime and OMF via the import dialogs. Someone asserted that drag-and-drop import was related to causing the corruption, and indeed I've not experienced it since following that advice.

ps - if Digi / Avid is interested, I can supply session docs which are corrupted with this bug.
