Can CS5 read projects out of Premiere Elements 7 and 8? If I start a project now in PrE 7 or 8, can I load that same project into CS5 and continue editing in there?
What about missing plugins, such as Mercalli, how will CS5 handle importing a project from Elements 7 or 8 where some of the clips have the Mercalli FX plugin applied to them?
Yes, windows only.
CS5 will show a message that the plugin is missing, thats all.
I would also NOT use Themes, or Instant Movies, as those can cause issues when trying to go to PrPro, plus some other Effects & Transitions, like those from New Blue might also show up as missing.
When I have either Opened, or Imported older Pr Projects into PrPro, I get a dialog with the missing Effect/Transition and even the location of this/these.
Just some thoughts,
