.SES File Extension
File Type 1Patran Session File
What is a SES file?
An SES file contains a session created by MSC Patran, a pre and post-processing program for Finite Element Analysis (FEA). It contains a list of directives, such as PCL statements or NOODL commands, that can be executed by Patran. SES files are 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.
File Type 2Audition Session File
.SES File Association 2
An SES file contains an audio project created by Adobe Audition, a sound production application. It stores an audio production session, which may include multiple tracks and mixing settings for each track, along with references to audio files. SES files do not store actual audio data.
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.
The SES file type is the primary file type associated with Audition and is an integral component of sound recording, mixing, editing, and mastering in the application. The file is created when saving a session, which allows the user to close the session, then re-open it for further work.
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.
