Hello, I wanted to buy an upgrade for my After Effects from CS3 to CS4, but since AFX cs4 was not created for PPC MACS I decided to buy a PC...my question is, if I bought my AFX CS3 for MAC can I still get an upgrade price
for a PC version of the AFX cs4? thanks
You can purchase a cross-platform upgrade, but you must do it via phone with Adobe. There are no retail cross-platform upgrades available in stores. Over the years a few people on this Forum have claimed Adobe Sales staff claimed cross-platform upgrades are not possible. This is not the case, so if you make the call and you are told it can't be done, ask to speak to a supervisor.
I looked on Adobe.com and couldn't find any info about it, but I've done it myself so I know it can be done. Google offers many third-party sites and blogs which confirm the procedure.
You will be required to sign a "Letter Of Software Destruction" for your Mac License, and you'll get new Windows serial numbers to use.
The price is the same as if you were upgrading Mac-Mac or Win-Win.
