    Will a project in 8.4 or 8.5 open in 8.8 win 10?

    Reason why I am asking this is I just read a thread on some issues - about crashes and perhaps video cards problems in refernce to projects that were opened earlier than in 8.6    Being that I needed a new Mothrboard and Cpu  I decided to go with Win 10.   Still waiting for some parrts.  I will have to open up a project and do some work on it, that was originally started in Aug 2015 not sure what version -  I just worked on it recently in 8.7.2 on Win 7 no problem- so I am wondering will I have any problems with it in 8.8 with windows 10?

     

    thank you

    Thank you Mariana -  the only thing I am worried about is my video card - only 1 gig quadro 2000  - we discussed this before and I realize that I will not have GPU  effects and so forth will not be enhanced - everything was fine  in 8.7.2 -  I guess shortly I will get the M2000 quadro but for now I hope my present card works

    If you are working with mxf files from Resolve or Shogun you shouldn't update!
    There is a serious problem with those files that is not fixed yet but hopefully will be in 8.8.1.
    See this thread for more info: http://community.avid.com/forums/t/179515.aspx?PageIndex=1
    We have one of our workstations still on 8.4.5 because of that reason.

    In general older projects open without problems in newer versions. I even once opened an ancient project from 1999 and it worked just fine!
