A terrific feature of Pro Tools is the ability to import session data from one…session file directly into another session file.…We can do that from the File menu. Choose Import > Session Data.…When you navigate to the right Pro Tools file, you can double-click on it, and…it may give you this warning, but that's okay. Click OK and we'll get the…Import Session Data dialog box.…Now this is a pretty busy box here, and we'll cover it all.…At the top, it's talking about the source properties of the file that were…trying to import from.…
That's all good. We can come down here to the Audio Media Options, and we can…choose where we want to get our files from. Do we want to copy from the source media?…If possible, we would love to link to the source media, so we don't have to make…a new file, but that's not possible here.…You can usually just keep it on the Copy from Source Media, and that's the…default, so I'll just choose that.…And we are not importing any videos, so we are not going to worry about that.…
