Update 8.05 Does Not Work! in EMC 8 - Install / Uninstall / Update Posted January 15, 2006 · Report reply I GIVE UP!!! I have spent to much time just trying to get it to work. It's not just the video editor either. I was able to work around that to some degree. I was putting the DVD together and ran into other problems with animated thumbnails. So in order to be able to get exactly what I wanted in the first place I will start over on version 7 and forget about 8. I also noticed you better be careful when looking at version 8 files with version 7. For some reason it must do something to the dat file. I opened them in 8 after looking at them with 7 and get all kinds of errors. I don't save them or anything though? I was hoping to use some of what I already did. I think the simple productions. (Just clipped video) might work ok. The more complicate stuff won't. You don't really expect ver 8 files to be compatible in ver 7? I don't understand how you can look at dat files created in ver 8 with ver 7 since that version does not use them. With ver 7, all information is contained in the Videowave dmsm project files. Ver 7 dmsm files though should have been useable in ver 8, in only very few cases I have been able a to load them into ver 8. I have also gone back to ver 7.5 to complete any project I started. New projects though I will do in ver 8 since I have no problems running ver 8.
