    Uninstalling FIRST and upgrading but want to save projects

    Hi -

    Bit of a conundrum here. I have a project that I want to keep and return to in Media Composer First, but I need to uninstall it so I can run Media Composer for a work project (they are reimbursing the licensing fee).

    How do I ensure that I will be able to safely return to all my hard work without losing it after uninstalling First, then installing and uninstalling Media Composer Ultimate, and back to installing First?

    Thank you!

    Thank you. I have been keeping the project itself and original video files on an external drive, with the exception of music cues. However, I'm overly worrying about all of the avid files that are created within the AVID APPLICATION folder that are linked to this project. This includes all of the video and audio files that are converted. Where do those live? Or will those be regenerated when i reinstall and repopen? Dumb question, but am worried about the challenges that could present at a later date.

    Excuse me -

    Meant to write: This includes all of the video and audio files that are converted within First.
