    Last update I promise.

    I’ve just been trying some of my files, I have misunderstood the error messages. Basically I can still open files from versions 11.5 and newer, but I cannot open files made in r11 and older. A lot of my earlier stuff was made in r11 and trying to open these files is what failed and sent me down this rabbit hole.

    Most of the projects I want access to were made in r16, so it’s not as bad as I thought. I asked Maxon about accessing r19 if I paid for a full licence and they’ve suggested they could help me out. I’m probably not going to do that, but I’m impressed with their service desk’s response.

    Hi Jim, sorry to bug you but are you still able to save out new versions of older C4D files?
