With the frequent release of Flame updates, it's very easy to accumulate multiple project archives from older releases of Flame.

Now if you are continually working and archiving a project, or perhaps restoring an older project for updating, archives created in previous versions of Flame are normally read only.

This meant that you couldn't add to them with a later release of Flame. So in order to have an archive with all your amendments, you would have to restore everything and make a new archive with the latest release of Flame to have a writable archive.

However in Flame 2019, you now have the ability to convert and upgrade old Flame archives to the latest release.

This means you can "freshen up" the old archives and this also allows you to amend or add new media into the archive without having to create a brand new one each time.

This is a massive time, space and money saver when it comes to archiving at all skill levels.
