There is no way to port from one page builder to another. You have to manually recreate each page.

Have to recreate more than 100 pages (quite complicated pages see here) from Visual Composer to Elementor Pro. I read you say I have to recreate each page, but, at least, should I leave both builder activated and build again each page with Elementor in the same page where VC are still there and then delete VC sections after having finished? It should be useful to see how was the page before and recreate images, and text and sections exactly as before but through Elementor. Thanks

I have just done a conversion using the approach you describe.
I left both builders active and created a new elementor page for each WB_VC page. I had no problems with the two page builders conflicting with each other, but I did have problems with the interaction between the template and elementor being different than expected under WPBakery. What I learned was to solve all the template conflicts first before you start building. It will save you heaps of time styling individual elements

what “problems with the interaction between the template and elementor being different than expected under WPBakery” do you refer to exactly?
Hoping to get a response before I fudge up my entire v carefully curated blog D':

Hi Isabel, the problem turned out to be that the person who created the site in WP Baker had not used simple heading tags <H1, H2, …> to style their template. Because I had both Elementor and WP Baker loaded, the custom CSS in WP Baker was interfering with the Elementor styling. It took a long time to work out. I ended up recreating a section of the site in a clean Elementor installation and it worked perfectly. I then used the Inspection tool in the browser to track down the \\\”rogue\\\” CSS.

Does anyone found a simple way to switch from WPBakery to Elementor?
