Consolidating files pro tools
Embedding media into a single file provides a convenient means to transferring data between systems, but it is important to note that a single OMF or AAF can be larger than 2GB only if no one individual media file contained within is larger than 2GB.
When working with OMF or AAF files with externally referenced media you need to make sure that you transfer not only the OMF or AAF file, but also the corresponding folder of media.
The OMF or AAF in this case will only include the metadata, but no media.
It can be very useful to reference the media rather than embed it so as not to duplicate media unnecessarily, especially in a shared storage environment such as a post house.

On each of these tracks I would like my wav or track to be one long track (the size of the complete project and not split parts.
I made sure I didn't have the other tracks selected but it still took in all the other tracks.
An OMF (Open Media Framework Interchange), which is also sometimes known as an OMFI, was developed by Avid in order that metadata and media data could be shared between both Mac OS and Windows; and different applications.
The AAF (Advanced Authoring Format) is a newer, open standard created in 2000 by a consortium of broadcasters and developers called the AAF Association (renamed in 2007, the Advanced Media Workflow Association).
For example, create a Catalog named “Thumps” and fill it with sound effects from three different volumes.
You can then drag the Catalog from the Workspace browser to another volume, and a folder named “Thumps” is created on that volume.
