      Hello Turnip,

      While VideoStudio X9 does support a wide range of previous project formats, due to the number of changes to the underlying structure of VideoStudio over the years we would be unable to guarantee its ability to open a project from VideoStudio 11 without any issues. While it is still possible to open the project in many cases, some project elements may not load fully or may need to be repositioned or effects reapplied.

      Hope this helps!

      Are you using a trial version of VideoStudio X9? The trial version will only open project files that were created in it, and cannot import project files from older versions.

      If you are using the full version of VideoStudio X9, then you can open X7 project either from within VideoStudio using the ‘File > Open Project’ window. Alternately, you can open it from Windows by navigating to your X7 project’s .vsp file, right clicking on it, and selecting ‘Open With > Corel VideoStudio X9’.

      Hope this helps!

    I have a 2004 tape video camera. Does VIDEO STUDIO allow this camera to connect with it. I only have a driver which allows me to connect to windows seven. Thank you Jeff.
