Video Wave 7 To Video Wave 8

Depends on what transitions/effects you used in the V7 project. Some V7 project files will open just fine in V8. Some won't. You can always recreate the project in V8 from scratch using the same photos.

 

 

Seriously? If I want to use my newly purchased V8 to edit my V7 projects, I have to start from scratch? And I can no longer use great V7 transitions like barcode? If this is true, can this product honestly be called an upgrade? Or is it more of a sidegrade?

Propably most EMC 7.5 project will work in EMC 8 as long as you still have EMC 7 installed. Because the project was created in EMC 7 when you open it in EMC 8, the program looks for links to files in EMC 7 folders.

I'm afraid that hasn't been the case. 7 just shuts down when I try to open its files in 8, and vice-versa. For EMC 8, the culprit seems to be 7's snazzy transitions and/or fancy .avi overlays. But that does not explain 7's problem with 8.

 

Two potential issues: my version of 7 is basic (yet currently outperforms 8 deluxe)

Like so many others, my 8 deluxe download arrived w/out the content file - an issue allegedly under investigation today.

 

Your thoughts?

What part of your Basic version 7 outperforms 8 Deluxe? Try Disc Copier, and see what happens. And see what happens when you try to add something to the Timeline in VideoWave in Basic 7, versus version 8.

 

If you can do either of those things with your Version 7, you don't have the Basic version.

Well, it's not easy to evaluate 8 when I have to rebuild everything from scratch and find that Sonic failed to include a content download. But what I was asking for what thoughts on why it's not compatable with 7 and if that can be fixed.

You're running Videowave 7 AND Videowave 8 at the sametime? Are you trying to open the same file in both applications at the same time? You should get a Windows sharing violation or 'file in use'.

 

I've never tried running them at the sametime. Maybe I can test that out sometime tomorrow.

I was able to open a production from Videowave 7.5 in 8.0 and, other than making some minor changes to transitions, it looks like it will work.

 

I'll know better when I try to save it as a new production.

 

Which brings me to a slightly different question. I bought my EMC 8.0 from Best Buy and the version is 3.0.0; build 3.0.91a. Is that the latest release version?

 

Thanks,

 

Robert
