I created a movie in the past with elements 2.0. I am now trying to edit that movie with elements 14 but it is installed on a new computer. I have my old files stored on the new computer but they may be in a drive letter. Open the project in elements 14 it hangs up and is asking "where is the file xxx.xxx" this would be clip reference and it probably cant find it. Can I index my hard drive or some how point elements 14 to search the drive for the files or do I have to navigate to each one?
If you place all of the media in the same folder, you may not need to navigate to each one. Be warned, however, that your version 2 project may not properly work in version 14.
I'm with Bob. THERE IS NO CHANCE YOU'LL BE ABLE TO EDIT A VERSION 2 PROJECT IN VERSION 14. They are far too different.
In fact, attempting to will likely corrupt the .prel file and make it impossible to open in either program.
Best advice is to finish your version 2 project in version 2, and start your new projects in version 14.
thank you for this answer. I suspected that this might be the case. I will try to install the 2.0 version on my new machine and edit with that version.
