Videowave Productions Have Lost Edits


sab

Question

I just replaced my RMC7 with RMC10, (thinking it would resolve some glitches I was having.) Now the dsms production I had halfway completed will open up in 10, but all of the editing I had done appears to be lost. Specifically 'moving picture' on stills, native audio on all video clips is back, and all text is gone. Anything I can do without redoing the entire project? sb

Do they all live in the same Roxio program folder? sb

 

Unfortunately, EMC 10 is not fully backward compatible with older versions (in your case version 7). Once you open up a version 7 prodcution in version 10, it is not guaranteed to work especially if you have a lot of edits (overlays, effects, transitions, text, etc). Sorry.

 

We always advise any user to finish any production or project he/she has done in the same version he/she created them before switching to a newer version.

 

Any chance you made a backup of the version 7 production? If so and you still have the version 7 installed on your PC then finish that production/project first with that version.

I can reinstall 7 and finish the project, but the reason I upgraded is because I could see I was going to have problems burning to dvd. (I don't recall what the error was at this moment.) If I finish in 7, can I burn it in 10? sb

If you open a EMC 7 project in EMC 10 and save the project from EMC 10 to the same filename, I believe you will no longer be able to open the project in EMC 7. EMC 10 saves the project to 2 files: a dmsm file and the dat file.

They are all in the Roxio folder, in Program Files, but I made sure that they were placed in separate sub-folders. EMC 7 does it automatically, but for versions 9 and 10, I made a separate folder for each, and did the Custom Install, so I could tell Roxio where to install.

I remember that happening when an EMC 7.5 production was opened unintentionally in EMC 9. The file became unusable. I hope that future EMC version put a warning that a different version created the production/project and a caveat that it may not open properly, then ask user if they want to proceed opening the file.

 

Anyway, I referred to a backup version in my post above as a fallback.

Install EMC 7, and finish the project there.

 

I have EMC 7.5, 9, and 10 on my computer. They reside together quite nicely.
