New Resource Library File Type? - wish item

Recommended Posts

One of the most cumbersome aspects of transitioning from one VW version to another is getting all of the years worth of accumulated third party and custom resources updated to the new VW file format.

It would be an exceptional improvement if a universal file type could be developed that the Resource Browser could always access regardless of any annual program update. Similar to saving a VW file as a 'template' we could save a VW file as a 'resource file' while still having access to all VW files that are in the format of the current program.

Opening one of these 'resource files' for edit would convert it to the current file type. It would then have to be saved back as a resource. However, no revisions would be needed to a 'resource file' from one program release to another if no change to that file was desired.
