    Can sequences cut in 2022.4.0 play in older versions of Media Composer

    Hi all!

    I'm about to start a show and I'd like to use my own Mac and Avid. I'm currently on the bleeding edge 2022.4.0 and I'm going to have to hand off any sequences I cut to an editor cutting on 2019.12. He tells me that last season, he had trouble reading sequences that came from another editor's Avid. He couldn't even see the video and the AE had to video mixdowns for him to be able to watch the work. Again. that editor was cutting on whatever was current last summer (2021.x) and additionally, was cutting on a PC. 

    I was working on the assumption that sequences (not projects) can mostly be handed off across versions of the Avid, and you just had to watch out to not use plug-in packages or functions that only became available in the newer version of MC. I'm hoping the issue had more to do with handing off sequences from a PC Avid to a Mac, but even that shouldn't really be an issue should it? 

    We're going to do a power test, but I'm wondering if anyone has already had experience with this issue.

    As long as the older systems are on the latest 2019.12.5 release it should work. But they need to check they Re that last december update.
