How to use the Content Transfer Wizard with Studio

Studio uses the Content Transfer Wizard to bring in content from Studio 10, 11, 12 and VideoSpin into Studio 14&15. This includes RTFX volumes, HFX volumes, Bonus DVDs, etc. Please note that the Content Transfer Wizard does not work for Studio 9 and earlier content.If you have questions about 3rd party plugin availability in Studio, please see this FAQ:

Some 3rd party plugins from previous Studio content discs cannot be activated in Studio 14&15

3rd party plugins from the Ultimate plugin discs are for use with the version of Studio in which they were purchased. Studio versions 11 and greater can all be installed side by side. Because of this you can leave the previous Studio version installed and still have access to the 3rd party plugin(s) in the version of Studio in which it was purchased.
