Never done this before, I am trying to figure out the simplest way to proceed because we will likely be doing this on a regular basis if it works.
I am on Cubase 10 Pro, he is on Cubase 8.5 (for now).
So my first question is, will this work? I know that things are forward compatible, but if the project mostly consists of audio clips, some automation, some plugins, what would be the chances that this will work? What would be the things that definitely won’t work so I can get rid of at my end my mixing down? Can he even open the project?
He also doesn’t have the same set of plugns that I do, so I was wondering, one of the options when preparing a full backup of the project is Apply Offline Processing Permanently. Does this mean that all of my plugins are applied? That might be very handy, although ideally I want to leave the ones that he owns on, to give him more options.
The alternative is rendering everything,I looked into it but for some reason, Cubase estimated something like 7 days to finish the job, something going on ther eobviously that I need to look into
