downgrading from cs6 to cs5.5 ?

Jul 1, 2013 8:53 PM

I have a Mac osx 10.8.4.  Having rendering problems with cs6 after effects.  Slow and buggy and lack of memory erros.  Does not perfome well at all.  After reading many forums about issue.  I have desided to move back to CS5.5 after effects. 


Here is the problem.  I have CS5 design premium.  I have located a CS5.5 after effects upgrade.  Can i upgrade one stand alone application from a suite?  I know you can not do that upgrading from cs5.5 to cs6, but what about moving backwards?


If not, can I increase memory and power to a 3.06 GHZ intel core i3, 4gb 1333 MHz Ram Mac?  Will this solve the problem?

    For After Effects CS6, make sure that you've installed the latest updates ( ). They fix a lot of problems, incliding working around a bug in Mac OSX memory management.

    > I am on the creative cloud now.  I am using the newest CS6 applications.  I assumed that they would be updated through the cloud.


    No. You have control over when to apply updates, including bug-fix updates.


    > If I have design premuim cs5, can I upgrade ONLY the After Effects application with a stand alone AE cs5.5 upgrade?

    I don't think so. You'll need to contact Customer Service about that:

    If you give us more specifics, including exact error messages and what you're doing that is slow, we may be able to help you.
