Can Lumion 3 pro open Lumion Ultimate 2 files?

Can Lumion 3 Pro open projects that were made with Lumion 2 Ultimate? I have a job on half that I would like to complete in Lumion 3Pro, if it is possible how do I do it? Presumably I have to copy some files from a Lumion 2 folder to a Lumion 3 folder?
Have looked for this question in the FAQs and other posts with no luck.

Hi Simoni, if you copy the files to the right locations and restart Lumion you will be able to open your 2.5 scenes in 3.0 without problems. Here's how:

Copy the Scenes and Library folders from Documents/Lumion 2 to Documents/Lumion 3 and restart Lumion 3.

Just bear in mind that a lot of Movie effects have changed, so to be on the safe side, you will have to remove all Movie effects from your clips (and from "Entire movie") and re-apply them in Lumion 3.

Thanks Morten, have copied files over, it crashed first time, then I deleted the Movie effects like you said, now works fine.
