    problem moving user settings from Media Composer ver to ver.5.5.3

    Hi all,

    I am trying to transfer user settings from Media Composer ver to Media Composer ver.5.5.3.

    I export the settings from the first machine and import them to the other. No error messages, but the user profile doesn't behave as supposed. Maybe the problem is that the target machine is with lower version of MC.

    Any help and suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks.

    Hi, it is by default a bad idea to use the settings from a higher to a lower version. Features added might not apply or even break stuff. When we update our systems and go from version to a higher version we re-crete the settings. 15 minute hassle which will save you countless hours of troubleshooting weird behaviour. My advice would be to just re-create them for version 5.x and be done with it.

    All the best,
