After Effects 5.5 is back a bunch of versions and different than CS5.5
Neither are available for sale by Adobe. CS6 is the last version you can purchase unless you want to go with a creative cloud subscription.
I would be very suspicious of anyone offering to sell a CS5.5 license.
did not look like a current version but just wanted to double check. also, not a license but unopened box. i too am wary bout those licenses.
Just make sure you get all the documentation and don't trust someone that has a store that sells unopened boxes. Research your seller completely.
You're trying to buy After Effects 5.5, which is over a decade old? Why?
After Effects CS5.5 is actually After Effects 10.5, just like After Effects CS6 is After Effects 11.0 and After Effects CC is After Effects 12.0.
todd, that's the point of the post. i didn't know the difference. i don't normally use after effects, i actually use illustrator and photoshop more; however, once in a while, i do use after effects. to facilitate the process, i normally purchase and edit templates from videohive.net and a lot of the new ones use cs5 or higher so i was looking to upgrade my cs4 version.
since i don't use it often, i wanted to find one on ebay. a new unopened one of course. this one listing with 5.5 came up but did not look right so i am verifying here.
