I'm currently using Premiere CS6. Premiere CC looks appealing in terms of the updates, but not the payment model. If I can't pay for CC for a while, or switch to another program one day, will I lose the ability to open any of my Premiere CC files? It's shocking how often I go back to an old project that was made in an ancient program that I no longer use, but because I forever own that software, I'm always able to open the file up and make whatever changes necessary so I can bring the file into a more current program. Is this workflow lost if I lose access to CC? If this is the case, I may have to stick to CS6 just because I have the disks and know I'll always be able to install the programs and access my files.
New PROJECT files, and SOME data files (such as InDesign ???) will not open in earlier programs... industry standard files (such as JPG) will open in any program
For more information about a specific program, you will need to ask in that program's forum
