Can you open it with Sonar and export?

Suffice it to say that I cannot export to OMF Type 1 or 2 in both SPlat or CbB.

The OMF option is permanently greyed out for me.

I dunno, maybe there are groove clips or clips with Region FX? Or inserted audio effects? Maybe OMF can't handle certain types of data ("invalid object")?

Man, after reading all 60 acronyms of "MOB," the only one that seems to fit is Method of Build, which is consistent with the second error and Craig's point above. I.e., there are objects the encoder chokes on.

Then again, it might mean "Mail order bride," "morbidly obese," or "money over b****es" so you could try proposing to it, eating more, or just pay it and see if it works.

I've just found a recent project that didn't have it greyed out, and it exported as OMF fine.
 
Looks like you need at least one audio track to export as OMF.
 
Freezing one of my instrument tracks makes it enabled.

are you aware that OMFs have a 2 gig limit?
 
you might have a corrupted track.  Freeze all your audio tracks and then try again

Just to mention... if the target is not really OMF, it can be better to first convert into REAPER (that part is free) and than use AATranslation (that is not free) for final destination. AATranslator support many formats (except Sonar), including different versions of PT. Still, audio only (at AATranslator step). So only audio parts will be converted.

Update: Mark, after adding an audio track (should've thought of it myself), it worked just fine.
Thanks again.

So a thing that I always do is freeze all the audio tracks and then also "remove silence" on the whole project.  That will make your OMF smaller.  I set my threshold at about -90db so I son't miss any fade ins/outs.  I have lots of success with this.  I have made hundreds of OMFs that where sent to be mixed in ProTools,
