Autodesk has confirmed that smoke 2012 and 2013 will not restore a VTR archive from smoke 2009.
Does anyone know how to read the digital audio that's on that archive tape? With that, I can marry the audio & video clips back together.
The suggested workaround is to install 2009, restore the archives, and then re-install the current versions. Scary stuff, since the current workstation is very different than the workstation that ran 2009. No, we do not have the old workstation (it died a horrible death).
Any other suggestions?
