How to transfer an updated ADR ProTools Session
 
I'll bet this has been answered a few dozen times, sorry folks.

This is my first ADR job, my own studio and the client is in Italy with a film shot from there, an independent. First recordings went great but there were callbacks and I'm wondering how I update what I've transferred there to Italy with these callbacks added into the original protools session file. I've added two days worth and have a few more to go this week.

If I understand the workflow correctly, when I'm done everyone, I would highlight all the new clips and export them all to a new sound file via using the clips window and right clicking after I've highlighted everything

I'd transfer that sound file I just created and the protools session itself? Or would I just transfer the session cache file as they've got the original session and sound files, they've got everything except these call backs I've recorded into the session.

Hope that makes sense and thanks for the help.

Put the new clips on their own set of tracks and "Export Selected Tracks as New Session", copying audio files. Zip it and send it.

Or better yet ask the client how they'd like it sent. This is how I'd want it if I already had the first session.

Ahhh, damn didn't think of that. Easy, makes sense, thanks Will but darn it I've already recorded 2 of the 5 and used their original tracks so I'll try duplicating both and deleting out the original takes to leave the retakes on those two.

Producer and director is Italian, I've asked him many times. He doesn't care how this is delivered, (outside of how we file transfer to his system) said as much as well but that didn't give me info I was actually looking for when I first broached the subject so thanks for this help.

I'll start new tracks for the remainder of the actors today and Monday, appreciate that heads up again, thanks Will.
