    OK, need more specifics here, sorry.

    FIrst off, did you duplicate your sequence and strip out all the video, leaving only audio tracks? Very important not to include video files with this AAF.

    And did you consolidate with handles to the external drive, THEN do the AAF, or are you trying to do an embedded AAF?

    OK, are you going…

    FILE>OUTPUT>EXPORT TO FILE…and then in the window that appears, in the EXPORT SETTING, choosing EXPORT TO PROTOOLS?

    Then in that window, make sure AAF is the EXPORT AS…and that AAF EDIT PROTOCOL is checked off. And then uncheck ALL VIDEO AND DATA TRACKS…only have ALL AUDIO selected, and then CONSOLIDATE MEDIA.

    Oh, you said you tried CONSOLIDATE MEDIA and that didn’t work…but the other options did. Hmmm….

    Consolidate the sequence first (only audio)…and then do the AAF and COPY ALL MEDIA from the consolidated sequence?
