Dear friends of Premiere Elements, we have following problem of compatibility. Three persons working on a project together. One has the version Nr 12, the other the version number 13, and the third has currently the try version number 14. We are trying to get the elements from the version 14 (test version for one month) on the timeline of the version 12 or 13. It seems impossible. Is there no compatibility ? Is it really impossible to work with a further version ? Thank you very much for your help.
You cannot open a project file created in Premiere Elements 14 in a version earlier than it. There is no backward compatibility in this regard in Premiere Elements.
It is possible to open a project file created in an older version in a later version, but even then there is no guarantee. To avoid problems, it is always good to work with a copy of the older project file when you attempt to open it in a later version. Best to finish a project in the version in which it was created, but...
When you introduce a computer to computer factor into all this, the original project file must not lose contact with its source media at its location where it was when it was first imported into the project. Often the File Menu/Project Archiver and its Copy Project option approach has help.
