    Moving Projects From Dvdit Pro Hd To Avid Dvd

    When moving projects over from DVDitPro HD to Avid DVD on a new machine I get the missing 267 files Locate Cancel Delete prompt. Selecting locate and pointing to the first missing files (Navigation buttons that are in a different file location due to the new name of the product and OS upgrade from Win XP to Win7-64), causes what looks like opening up of the 267 files, but the end result is an untitled project with none of the elemements of the old project. Selecting Cancel leads to having to do it 237 time and selecting Delete opens up the file but missing the 267 elements. Is there anyway I can save the project with a condsalidate all the links to one location option or place them all in one location (such as the sources sub directory located in the directory the project file resides) to be able to transfer the project over?

    Re: Moving Projects From Dvdit Pro Hd To Avid Dvd

    As you pointed out, there is no easy way to move a project from DVDit Pro HD to Avid-DVD. My sugggestion: Install Avid-DVD in addition to DVDit Pro HD on your computer, and start all new projects with Avid-DVD. Leave DVDit Pro HD for work on old projects.

    I don't think you can both installed as Avid DVD is "very much the same" as Sonic DVDit Pro HD

    And trying to move or re-link in either program almost always ends up with it crashing.

    As long as you have the original assets used in the DVD creation I'd stick with rebuilding the DVD's again in the new programme and just accpet the old authoring is lost.

    You are right. I tested to install both applications on my W7 testsystem. It is not possible. After having installed DVDit Pro HD, Avid-DVD ends installation with the message "Avid DVD is already installed....".

    So the only way is to use the assets as they are in the other software.

    I've had the same problem just reopening a project on the same computer with Avid DVD and no changes to the installation. Just it's looking for some image files that appear to have moved then when I point it to them it opens an Untitled project and all is lost. I recall having this problem a few years ago with an earlier version of the software and I'd vowed to never use it again but assumed they'd fixed it and I've paid for it after all. There must be some way of avoiding this?

    The problem is, that Avid DVD uses a different folder structure to store media data compared to the folder structure of DVDit Pro HD. Therefor, you cannot ope a project in one application that was created in the other. You will always get this "media missing" error.
