It is possible to transfer a project from one computer to another. Below are the requirements:
1. Project compatibility
The projects are only upwards compatible, meaning that you can transfer a project from Video Editor Plus 22 to Video Editor 23 (or Video Editor Plus 21 to Video Editor Plus 22), but not the other way around.
Also note that, when the version of the application on one machine differs from the most current one, the project might have problems opening in the previous version.
You can check which version you have at the menu Help - About.
Ideally, it is best to exchange projects when you have the exact same version of the program.
2. Project files and the media files
A project file has a .MEPX, .MEPS, .MEPB or .MEPJ format, depending on your product.
There was also a *.MEP format in the versions Movavi Video Editor 10 and earlier, and Movavi Video Suite 14 and earlier.
By default, the project file is stored in the folder Videos\Movavi Video Editor\Projects (Windows OS) and in the folder /Movies/Movavi Video Editor/Projects", but you can save your projects anywhere else you like by saving the project file via 'Save project as…'.
This file contains the information about actions performed with the project, information on applied transitions, filters etc.
The project does not contain any actual files. Thus, if you need to continue working on your video on another machine, you will need both the project file and all the video, audio, and image files that were used in your work.
When opening the project the first time, the program is looking for the files that were added to the project.
As their location has been changed, you might need to specify the new location of the files.
To do that, please click Browse and specify the new file location.
This also happens when one moves the files across the hard drive, removes the files, or somehow modifies them.
For this reason, at the moment, it may be more convenient to store the files you use on the hard drive.
