Camtasia 2 to Camtasia 2019

I've been using Camtasia 2 (I know) for years but now it's crashing constantly so I'm finally deciding to bite the bullet and upgrade to Camtasia 2019. But I can't open my project file in Camtasia 2019, I need to convert it in 2018 or 3. What are my options here. Do I have to re-record?

To open the project in this version, you must open and convert the project in Camtasia 3 or 2018. Save the converted project file to open in Camtasia 2019.

I've never been impressed by Camtasia being unable to directly open projects from older versions, but it is what it is. I believe that your licence for C2019 also allows you access to past versions.  (See this page.)

On Windows at least (and I've no reason to believe that this is different on the Mac) you can have multiple versions installed, so you can download and install C2018. Open your project in C2018, save it, then open it again in C2019. Tedious, but it should get you out of this jam.
