Camtasia 7.1 Cannot Open camproj files created using Camtasia 8? Is this a known error?

Got the following error message:
Error: This Project was created in a newer version of Camtasia Studio and cannot be loaded in this version.

To be more accurate with the version:
Camtasia 7.1.1 Cannot Open camproj files created using Camtasia 8.0.4.

you cannot [directly] open CS 8 projects with earlier versions of the program; this is normal behavior for most advanced applications there are many functions in CS 8 that are coded substantially different than in earlier versions, and if you used any CS 8 new features, the older versions could not handle those.

if you need to continue project work in an earlier version of CS, I suggest you use CS 8 to produce an MP4, then use that MP4 in CS 7 to start a new project

But producing an .mp4 file and importing it in camtasia 7 does not solve the problem . My problem is the .swf file creation. The quality degrades drastically if a .mp4 file is imported in cam 7 and then  exported as .swf file.
Isnt there any other way to achieve this?

It's a little time consuming. If you play the video produced with Camtasia 8 on your computer, and record it using Camtasia 7. This will give you a high quality recording that you can edit with the workflow you are accustomed to. The produced project will look great.  {:>)
