    Feature film project from MC 6.5.2 to MC 8 and backwards?

    Hello to everyone here!

    I will take over a feature film project. Currently the project is cut on MC 6.5.2 and on an iMac with OSX 10.8. My setup will be an iMac (3.5 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 processor (Turbo Boost up to 3.9 GHz), 32 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 4x 8 GB, 1 TB Fusion Drive, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780m 4GB of GDDR5 and the new MC version 8 on OSX 10.9.

    Will that work? And will that work backwards too?

    Thanks for the reply and kind regards!

    I think they would need to update to 6.5.3 on their end (for free).

    Usually, you can go back and forth between versions of MC, but once every few versions, a major change in the bin or project structure complicates things. You can always go up (I've opened bins from 1997 in a 2012 version of MC), but you cannot always go down, version-wise.

    MC8 and MC7 have the very same type of bins and projects, but v7 came with some changes compared to v6.5 and earlier. See http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/en_US/compatibility/Sharing-or-moving-bins-and-projects-created-with-Media-Composer-7-0-or-NewsCutter-11-0-with-older-versions
