- [Instructor] In this video, I want to talk briefly…about the Revit file format and backward compatibility.…If you go to the Autodesk Knowledge Network…and you search for backward compatibility, you'll find…that each release of Revit is it's own unique file format…and that Revit files are not backward compatible.…So, if I just sort of scroll down here a little bit,…you'll see here that you cannot save the model…from the current version of Revit…to a prior version of Revit.…So, this is really important when you're working together…with teams of folks, either in your firm…or in other firms, you have to make sure…that everybody is on the same version of Revit.…
So, regardless of what that version is,…everybody on the project team needs…to be on that same version.…So, let me show you what it would look like…if you began opening a file from a previous release.…What'll happen is it will display some sort of a message…on screen telling you you're upgrading the model…and, you know, it'll give you a little message here…
