Open and then save them with CS3 on a PC. Just like the message says.
Well I went back and listened to that section again to be sure I'm not crazy. And it definitely does not state that you have to open them and save them in CS3 on the PC first. It simply states that you can open older CS version Premiere files created on a PC by importing into CS3 on a Mac. Please watch/listen to that video. It's cryatal clear. The guy must be wrong about this. Also, I migrated to Mac with my Adobe Master Collections licenses. I don't have CS3 on the PC. So thanks for responding, but this repsonse did not answer my question or help to solve my problem.
It helps. FYI, CS3 is the first CS version. PP 1.x and 2.0 were definitely NOT CS. So the video is correct because the PC version of CS3 was older than the MAC version.
Thanks. We're arguing futile points when my problem is not being addressed. You're telling me I have to find or buy a PC setup with CS3 in order to salvage this Premiere Pro project that was done on PC?
Only if you want to transfer it to Mac, then yes. Usually it is best to finish a project with the version you started with.
This has come up a few times and the solution is to find a PC CS3 user, who will Open the Project and then Save it in CS3-CS4 for you. I does mean that you'll have to befriend a PC-person, but who knows, maybe you can reciprocate later on. In each previous instance, this workflow, PC to PC to Mac worked perfectly. Note: the same holds for Encore Projects, and there is some PC to PC incompatibilities between very early versions and later versions. I had to Open and Save an Enocre 1.0 Project in CS2, so a CS4 (only) user could then Open in CS4. This stuff happens, and the skip in Mac porting can play a role in it. If I had CS3 on my PC's, I'd do it for you, but CS2 will not hlep you.
I believe that P 6.5 was the last previous version ported for the Mac, until CS3.
