For my compositing classes, the teacher requires us to save in CS5 or CS5.5, but the lowest my home version of After Effect can save in is CS6. I understood based off others that I need to download AE CS6 to save in CS5.5 or, even better, AE CS5 to save in CS5. Can I have access to these versions of the program with Creative Cloud? If not, what are my options?
No, these versions are pre-CC and no, there is no way to buy them at this point nor are you entitled to downgrade if you were to buy CC. Sorry, short of exploiting the trial versions for as long as they last or finding a used license there is simply no way.
Okay... Well, thanks anyway!
