Cannot open .anim files on trial version

Hi. I recently downloaded the trial version to give a real go at toon boom harmony and see if it’s the right fit for me.
I’ve been doing an online tutorial on it that comes with some exercise files. However I am unable to open some of these files for instance the .anim files.
This is very frustrating. Can someone help?

Files from Animate cannot be opened in Harmony. I think you have to contact Support for them to be converted. If you’re following tutorials you should follow more recent ones. There’s a lot of information on Toon Boom’s own portal at
