I wish to upgrade form PD14 and 365 looks nice. But does it download directly to desktop? Can use it offline or do I need to do only when I am online?

Also will it open my old master files from PD14 and previous verisions, so I can use established templates?

PD 365 uses the Cyberlink Application Manager and will initially install the latest version. It will notify you when there are updates and new media packs are available. You can refuse to upgrade but I am not sure for how long.

I would think you would be able to open your old files just fine. I think this because the templates off director zone say they will work with versions dating far back.

I am not too sure if you can use it offline, you probably need to connect every x days. I tried to lauch it once and it said I needed to connect to the internet to ensure my license was still valid. I am connected most of the time but I guess I was not at that time.

As far as I'm aware, PD365 needs to check your subscription status once every 30 days.

It's installed on your hard drive (as in, it's not a "cloud-only" app), and there's no requirement to be online while editing. As long as you can connect when/if your prompted for the license check, you'll be fine.

The old files will usually open, however, some aspects may not be as they were. This really depends on what editing features were incorporated in the old files. For instance, any chroma key effects will not be the same, slideshow timings can be different, some previous effects may not be available....on and on, but they usually open successfully for a starting point.
