Thread: Can I open old DVD arch pro files with DVD Arch Studio 5 ?

    Default Can I open old DVD arch pro files with DVD Arch Studio 5 ?

    Way back in 2005, I used a friends computer to make some DVD's of a trip to Antarctica. Now I have DVD Arch Studio 5, but when I try to open the old .dar files I get a message that i need DVD Arch Pro to open them. Is there a program to convert these so they can be opened with studio 5 ? I have some nice menus that I developed then and it is those that I want to copy across without having to set them up from scratch.

    I also have a lot of video clips done with Vegas pro 4.5 (I think, it was a long time ago). Any way of opening them with Vegas studio ?

    I am a bit surprised that Sony is so protective of such an old version, it would appear that the current studio suite is similar to the old pro versions of 7 years ago, if not more advanced.

    I'm afraid that whilst you can open "Studio" created files in "pro" versions, the reverse is not the case.
    The "pro" versions add a number of features which are not available in Studio and some of these might have an impact on features available in both so it would be impossible for "studio" to interpret how to deal with some of the information.

    Thanks, I thought that might be the case, "the answer I did not want to hear". But, I can now focus the attention on other matters.
