"Classic" will automatically download any originals uploaded by LRCC. At that point, you would have your original in the cloud, and it would also exist in the folder catalogued by "Classic". The difference from before LRCC was released is that you have the high res original in the cloud.
Thank you. They showed up in Classic in a folder named From Mobile. The Mobile terminology remains here and there, confusing.
It is a little tricky, because if I look at an image from CC and in Classic create a copy of it, that’s only a virtual copy (metadata only) in Classic, but it gets synced to CC except as a separate picture, not linked to the original, and it is a Smart Preview (low res) only. Not a good behavior. Even though I understand that images should originate in CC, creating a virtual copy with alternate editing is common.
So so here is the killer question: if I migrate a Classic catalog to CC, it will land in CC and then be synced back to my main Classic catalog?
I will test that, but not with my current operational catalog, that’s 200 GB that will move up and back down again...
I'm really interested by this too because after I migrated I opened up Classic while CC was still uploading and it looks like CC started uploading stuff too... :-\ I'm not sure what's become of my library now.

No, my understanding is that if you migrate, that disables any syncing by that "Classic" catalogue.
Interesting, maybe it was syncing back down and matching things up then?
Disabling syncing if that migrated catalog would be logical.
But if I have my main “2017” catalog synced, and then I migrate another catalog “Stockholm trip”, it should migrate back down into “2017”, creating duplicates of the RAW files.
Seems loTidal. But impractical.
