Default Opening TDM Sessions in LE...

Sorry for the x-post from LE - but I'm stumped... & lookin' for help...


Hey there.

The saga continues.

I've got the TDM files (PT 7) here in front of me.

I copied the sessions over to another hard drive so I can work on them.

It appears eveything transferred over - becasue the folder that I copied everything over to says it's 16 Gig of data - just like the original.

When I go to load the files into my my sytem (PT 6.4) - the opening sequence of events looks correct - but all it does is load my original files. I am opening the session by clicking on the "pts" file.

I know that it's the original files - because the session says it was last modified in February - and we just finished tracking some stuff in this particular song on March 23 - plus none of the new tracks are there. I can however see that new tracks are sitting in the audio files folder...

I did notice there is a file called "ptf" - which when I look at it in the preview window - does contain the correct date of the last session.

I almost get the impression that maybe we didn't save this correctly for my system to open - or I may be missing something simple.

And both systems are Mac.

Thanks for any guidance,

Sparky1

You figured it out!!!

Do a "save as" not "save"

As the Austrailian Crocodile Hunter would say - "Crikey"

Thanks for confirming my suspicions DIAFXMX.

So - if you're still hangin' out - what do I get them to save the files as - so that I can open them...


Thanks,

Sparky1

You need to open the (.PTF) session on a Pro Tools 7.x system and use Save Session Copy In... -- this is covered in the "What's New in Pro Tools 7" PDF file.

You can also simply email the session file to someone wth pro Tools 7.x who can resave it as "5.1 -> 6.9" (.PTS) for you.

Great idea about just emailing the session files!

Thanks Rail
