Hi Reallusion,
After a ten day trial I'm about to commit CTA to a job. Just two last questions before purchase.
If I start work on the job in CTA3 will I be able to open all scenes and characters in CTA4 and be able to continue working seamlessly?
Just as importantly, if I choose to update to CTA4 but have problems of any kind will I be able to revert back to CTA3 installation?
Many thanks.

So far I have found CTA to always be backwards compatible so there should be no problem opening projects from CTA3 in CTA4.
As for reverting back, you don't need to.
You can have both (or all) versions of CTA installed at the same time since each new version of CTA installs in it's own directories.

Is anyone having this problem importing product into CTA 4?
With over 50% of my product - I am getting this message 

Failed to read the rl.content file. Please re-download the file and try again!

I have done this several times and still unable to update my CTA4 with content.

Any suggestions?
Thank you

Which content are you having problems with? Do you mean content packs you have purchased or custom content you saved yourself in CTA3?

If it is purchased content, please tell us the packs you are having problems with so we can test them. Thanks.

Hi Chrissy

Thanks for confirming some of the packs affected. These are installing fine for me so the issue may be with the Content Downloader itself.

Please download and install the latest version of the downloader from the link below. Then try again to install your content packs.

If you then continue to have problems, please contact Technical Support using the link below. They will be able to advise you further.

Thanks.
