#1

I have several DVD Author version 1.6 project files and i dont think they are compatible with version 2.

Can anyone confirm this

thanks


#2

I have TMPGEnc DVD Author 2 and a few projects created with a trial version of 1.6, and you are correct - unfortunately. :frowning:


#3

thats a crapper…well they wont be gettin my money for version 2.
I have so many version 1.5 projects that i cant delete.
Some fool at TMPENC shoulda realised this
Thanks

i just got an email from TMPENC.
What a ridiculous decision to create updated versions of the software that dont open the files created with the earlier release.
Its either greed or stupidity.


#5

There could be other reasons why they are incompatible.

But you can run both versions at the same time, so you don’t lose 1.6 functionality.


#6

I cant think of a reason why i would want to run both,but id like any suggestions.
I did try a trial of Version 2 a while back but all it did was screw up the 1.6 version so i had to uninstall 2. and reinstall 1.6.

I use to run both TDA ver 1.6 and 2 with no issue at all. Now I run 1.6 and 3. Any old ver 1.6 templates I have I still use with 1.6 but I have slowly migrated them to 3 manually.

By the way, the new TDA 3 will load the older ver 2 templates.
