Default Migrating & Updating

Two questions gentlemen.

1/ im still on PT le 7.4 . ( i know its pathetic but updating is a pain in the ... Imo). Now i want to buy another computer but considering i was running PT 7.4 on an old mac os x tiger 10.4.11, do you think guys i will be able to use all my old projects without any loss with last mac os ? Whats your advice to make that update ?

2/. I have 2 macs, both on tiger, but one is an intel so i want to transfer all into this faster intel computer (for the moment coz i want to upgrade later on 10.7 at least...). When cloning and transfering all the disk to the other, will i need in the end to re-install PT or is it automatic with a clone ?

Ty

what computer are you considering? if you get a new enough one it will not run 10.4

a good backup image should transfer across OK

1) like I said a goos system image usually works fine but once in a while they don't
2) it should be fine but resave with the Mac/PC compatablaty checked and mahe sure all the files have the . extension file type on them
also a good time to convert any SD2 files
3) ?, new retina MBP (assuming OSX10.8) you will need to install PT10.3.5 fresh. do not even try to install any applications from 10.4 on 10.8

if your file have the 3 letter extension after the . then you should be OK
one or two you may need to make a new session and use Import Session Data

if your old sessions does not have the .ptf or .pts (I don't remember what 7.4 used) you may get a " Session Was Created with an newer version of Pro Tools " error message

same may happen to your audio files if the do not have: .wav, .sd2, or .aif

PC compatibility forces the extension on the files

10 makes .ptx session files

a new retina will come with 10.8 so you should get PT10 (you should get the upgrade to 11 when it comes out) download the 10.3.5 installer
you will need an iLok v2 (it looks like a thumb drive compared to the blob looking v1) for the Pro Tools license , Slate Digital has a deal that you buy the one of the select plug-ins and they give you an iLok v2.

scene V9 Pro Tools can use almost any interface including the computers internal sound card (Pro Tools Expert Blog has a list of interfaces that work)
you should figure out what you need and what you want an interface to do

I've opened v5 session in 10 so you v7.4 sessions should be fine, if they do not open directly using Import Session Data should do the trick
