File type: Pro Tools 7 Session File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .ptf. Files with the file extension .ptf can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .ptf files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .ptf file?

Files in the PTF format are audio files created by Avid Technology’s Pro Tools, a digital audio workstation platform widely used by professionals throughout the audio and video production industry. Pro Tools offers features including production, editing, scoring and all other post production elements needed for both audio and video files. Pro Tools can also act as a stand-alone software or used together with third-party converters and other programs. PTF files are mainly session files created from Pro Tools. Although such files are not able to contain the actual audio or video files themselves, PTF files may contain added audio effects, automations, project settings used in the production of the project and the reference to its actual audio or video file. To view and manage such files, the user may be required to install the authoring program, which is Pro Tools 7.0. manually opening and conversion of this file is discouraged.

how to open a .ptf file?

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .ptf files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .ptf. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
