Logic doesn't timestamp some files

Files which have been recorded by Logic, I am trying to spot them into Pro Tools and SOME files are not timestamped.

What would be the best solution?

In Logic the files "return to the correct original position" but in the Pro Tools workspace window they are shown without a timestamp.

i am using bwav.

this is during the course of one recording session.

i recorded takes across different tracks, different instruments, you know, like a recording session.

just that some of the wav files on disk just don't have a timestamp.

weird, I have noticed a similar thing pro tools files coming into Logic. I always find the safest bet is to export tracks as audio files or in PT consolidate audio files.

OK,

Took me a couple of days to work this out.

I never found the solution to why Logic did not timestamp some of my files.

In the end I got OMF working. At first I had loads of errors but this is how I did it.

Logic must be in 32 bit mode!

You can select all muted regions and delete them. Export as OMF, version 2, split files to L/R stereo, 24 bit, no dither.

OMF sets the start of the session to 0 hours, even if the SMPTE offset in Logic was not 0 hours. I set Pro Tools to 0 hours in session setup, and copied the tempo from Logic before importing session data.

Importing the session data from the OMF, and set to consolidate the files. After the import is done I have everything there and helpfully the OMF export has included audio either side of the edits so I can re-do them in Pro Tools!
