Im not real hopeful that a ver that old will import correctly into CS4. If you already tried it and it doesnt work, I dont know what else to suggest. (other than starting over). Sry
Is there a place I could get say CS2 as a stepping stone?
It's been awhile since I did it and I was coming from Pr 6.5, but I was able to simply open the projects, not import them. There was some message about conversion and then the project opened and asked for the location of the files (where is xxx.avi?).
There was a strange thing that took awhile to figure out that had to do with opacity or blend mode being set to color instead of normal, but a right click on a clip that had been changed to normal, copy attributes and then select all clips and paste attributes fixed that.
CS2 didnt support mac
