Hi I have a file that opens only in CS6 and I need to open the same file in CS5.5, is it possible to save the file in CS6 as a format that will open in CS5.5? This is urgent as my cs6 trial will run out soon. The file was oroginally started in cs5.5 then opened and saved on a trial of cs6 which is still on going.
With After Effects you can save your project in a text-based XML format or Save a Copy As CS5.5, again with the caveat that new functionality in CS6 won’t transfer down. Going the other way, there are some tricks to follow to help your older project import and work in the newer release.
If you want a more automated way to export for older AE releases going back to CS3, the third-party Open Sesame plug-in may be another option.
Thank you I'll try and see if it let's me save as CS5.5 format
As was stated saving to CS5.5 is a simple matter of selecting File>Save As>Save A Copy AS CS5.5
CS6 specific effects will not be included but everything else will.
