Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing OMF and AAF files, part of Pro Tools: Audio for Film and Video.
Once you have your properly exported OMF and the QuickTime reference movie on…hand, it's time to import them into Pro Tools.…Let's check this out.…Getting an OMF or AAF into Pro Tools is a pretty simple process.…Pro Tools even treats an OMF as a session file.…So here we have our deliverables in our OMF.…You can double-click on it to open it or go to Pro Tools and go to File >…Open and choose it. Let's do that.…In Pro Tools, File > Open Session. I find it here. Click on it and click Open.…
This will start a new session.…So we have to check our Audio File Type, Sample Rate, and Bit Depth.…These are all the ones we want to use, so we will click OK.…Then it will ask us where to put it.…So we'll put it in our 03_01, and we will call it andinhrace, which is the name…of the OMF file to begin with.…Pro Tools immediately brings you into this Import Session Data dialog box.…This is the same Import Session Data box we will use to import session data from…other Pro Tools sessions as well.…On the top left you have your Source Properties.…

Q: This course was updated on 4/04/12. Can you tell me what changed?
A: This update was initiated when Avid released Pro Tools 10. It explains that this course can be taken with either Pro Tools 9 or 10 (the exercise files are compatible with both), and we also added movies that explore the enhanced clip-based gain and Audio Suite features in Pro Tools 10, both of which are useful when building a soundtrack.
