Ok, I have spent three days trying to make the v7 scene file including a plugin import into v8 maintaining keyframes. This is a very serious issue and I have made little progress. Mr. Sterner stated he had gotten v7 files to import into v8. I am not sure if that includes parameter animation but that is what I really need to work. I can get parameter 'states' to read in and be set but that requires parameter IDs to be the same. I will maintain parameter ids if I absolutely have to but that is a waste of memory. I would prefer to have a function where I can read the keyframes with all data ( handles bias etc... ) and move it and change the sequence / parameter link. That would make this all work seemlessly. That is what I expect.
As for the test I did, I set the plugin ID of the rounded tube in the v8 SDK to the same id it is in the v7 SDK ( why are these different? ). The parameter states read in but not the animation. The SDK examples not working is a very serious concern I do not consider this emulation. This is importing the data from a previous version. It is not an option.
