.SES File Extension
File Type 1Patran Session File
What is a SES file?
Session created by MSC Patran, a pre and post-processing program for Finite Element Analysis (FEA); contains a list of directives, such as PCL statements or NOODL commands, that can be executed by Patran; automatically opened when Patran is started and closed when Patran is quit.
The SES file can serve a variety of purposes:
- Recreate a model from nothing.
- Act as a log of transactions for review and modification.
- Work as a macro, repetitively executing a sequence of commands.
NOTE: For each session, a two digit number is appended on to the end of the SES extension, e.g, the 3rd session file would appear as example.ses.03.

.SES File Association 2
Audio project created by Adobe Audition, a sound production application; can include multiple tracks and mixing settings for each track; contains references to audio files but does not store the audio data; saves an audio production session and is used in the process of sound recording, mixing, editing, and mastering.
SES files were originally used by Syntrillium Software's Cool Edit Pro, which was acquired by Adobe in May, 2003. Adobe rebranded the software as Adobe Audition and released the first version of Adobe Audition later that year.
NOTE: Adobe discontinued support for SES files in Adobe Audition CS5.5. However, you can still convert SES files to the newer XML-based .SESX format using Ses2Sesx.
