      I have a lot of videos processed using elements 2.  I have bought a MAC.  If I buy the newest version of elements for my new mac, will i be able to easily transfer the videos to the newest version i.e. will the new software automatically integrate the work done on those videos.  What is my best option to transfer those videos to my new mac.  Thanks

          What is your "Elements 2" - Photoshop Elements 2 or Premiere Elements 2? For now I will assume Premiere Elements 2 which had to be on some version of Windows.

           

          What do you have from Premiere Elements 2 - project files (.prel) or exports to file formats such as .avi or .mpg or .mov?

           

          Project files from Premiere Elements (any version) Windows cannot be used in Premiere Elements (any version) Mac.

           

          Video files exported from Premiere Elements 2 with its QuickTime choice (.mov files) would be likely to open in Premiere Elements 13 Mac. The other Premiere Elements

          2 choices of MPEG and Windows Media would be expected to need conversion to .mov or .mp4 before import into Premiere Elements 13.

           

          In Premiere Elements 13 Mac, consider importing the files from wherever you save files in Mac to a project with the project's Expert workspace Add Media/Files and Folders/Project Assets. I would strongly encourage you to set the project preset manually (File Menu/New/Project) to match the properties of these source files before import rather than let the project do it manually for you based on the properties of the first video dragged to the Timeline.
