What is the oldest Mac upgrade version that the New Camtasia will open

I have Camtasia files created over the last 2-3 years (Mac). While I upgraded Camtasia itself, I haven't opened each of the files created with it. Will the new Camtasia open files created several upgrades prior to 2.10.7?

I ask in case I have to open each of them in 2.10.7 before it's overwritten by Camtasia's newest release.

I just created a project with version 1.2.3 and tried to open it in Camtasia 3 and it offered to convert the project:



So I'm assuming this means you'll be ok with any of the older ones in the 2.x series, but I have not actually tried anything beyond 2.10.7

If it helps, I've got both version 2 and 3 installed side by side, and you can easily do the same if you're concerned about accessing your old projects.

Thanks Jack. That's really good to know and a big help. Saves the time opening and saving all the older files.

I am not 100% sure, but I think Camtasia 3.0 should open any project created by Camtasia for Mac from 2.0 on.  It definitely should work for any version released in the last couple of years.
