Join David Franz for an in-depth discussion in this video Identifying elements in a session folder, part of Pro Tools 10 Essential Training.
When you create a new session file, Pro Tools actually creates an entire folder…that contains many subfolders that hold all of the files related to the session.…So I am going to hide Pro Tools and look at this new session folder.…Here it is, the new session folder.…And here are all the contents, Audio Files, Clip Groups, New Session, Session…File Backups, Video Files and the WaveCache.…The new session.ptx file is the session file.…
That stores all the session data but it does not store audio or video.…It only points to the audio and video files on your hard drive.…The audio files are kept in a separate Audio Files folder.…This is very important to understand, they are not part of the session.…They exist separately in this folder and the session file simply references back…to them and tells the hard drive what parts of the files to playback.…The same goes for Video Files.…
And I'll discuss Clip Groups in another video.…The Waveform Cache file stores all of the waveform display data for the session.…
