Sometimes yes, sometimes no... it all depends on the individual program and if you are creating an Adobe specific file or some kind of industry standard file, such as JPG
yes, your cc created files can be opened in cs6. of course, any new cc features won't be available/functional in cs6 but otherwise everything will work as expected.
you can use the cc 30 trial to test that (and anything else you like), Download Adobe Creative Cloud apps | Free Adobe CC trial
Hmm... that is not what people in the Premiere Pro forum say, when a Premiere Pro CC project file will not open in Premiere Pro CS6
that would be the first time adobe's done that and that's not how it works with flash pro. can you test with premiere pro? i don't have it installed.
the most restrictive they've been in the past is to require a 'save as' to save in a format compatible with the previous version. with flash pro you don't even need to do that any more.
and @op, in view of js'es info, you should use the cc trial to test if the adobe programs you use save in a cs6 compatible format.
Thanks. I am referring specifically to CS6 Photoshop, Indesign and Illustrator, not Flashpro etc.
I need to know if, for instance, Photoshop layers, saving as jpgs and tiffs etc and all editing done in CC will be available and workable for further editing when exported back into CS6 if I have to end my subs to CC.
DItto, layers, effects, colour set-up, font usage etc in Indesign and Illustrator.
I need to be absolutely sure of this before I take out a CC subs.
no jpg,tiff from ps or swf from flash pro etc will contain any editing info no mater whether you use an adobe product or something else. they never have and never will.
the source psd file will contain that info. saving source files (eg, psd from ps cs6 and fla from flash pro cs6) will be useable in the corresponding cs5 programs.
again, test to make sure.
Adobe summed it up for me. And gave me a really hard sell.
Anything I create in CC, layers, filters, effects etc, when saved into CS6 will not retain those layers, effects etc if I cease to subscribe to CC in the future.
So, a file created in CC Photoshop with, say, filters only available in CC, will not have those filters left in the file if then opened in CS6. In other words, the file will not be complete anymore.
I'd call it having you over a barrel. They seem to think that $600 a year is a paltry amount. Not to me it isn't.
again, this should be obvious and has been stated before several times: So, a file created in CC Photoshop with, say, filters only available in CC, will not have those filters left in the file if then opened in CS6. In other words, the file will not be complete anymore.
