I have an annimation that was made back in 2002 using After Effects 5.5 on a windows machine. We no longer have the program or the old computer - just all the files. How can I open it/convert it so that we can make edits to it and save a HD version using the new v12 software?
What other versions of AE you have access to? Try opening it in a newer-than-5.5-but-older-than-12 version and resaving it.
Edit: I see Mylenium types more quickly and with better suggestions than I today.

After Effects CC (12.0) will open projects created in After Effects 7.0 or later, you can use any version after 7.0 to do what Mylenium and Szalam suggest.
