I'm soon to start work on a friend's university project and it would be useful for me to be able to work on both my computer at home and the ones at the university. However, I have version 8.4 and the university computers are on 7.4
I know I can't go backwards but I'm under the impression that it is possible to switch between the two if I set up the project on the university computer and did all the transcoding for the offline edit there. Then, so long as I don't use a feature that is on my version of AVID that isn't on the university version, there shouldn't be a problem editing on both versions? Let me know if I'm completely wrong here.
The camera being used is the Sony FS7 and will only be shooting on HD. The XAVC plugin is on both computers. I then plan to round-trip it from DaVinci and Pro Tools for the latter stages of post.
