I'm wondering about the upgrade procedure for AE CS3 and CS4. If I had a old version of AE like, say 5.5, could I upgrade to AE CS3 if I'm on a Mac running Leopard? If I understand correctly AE 5.5 works on Mac OS 9 and below... So does the previous version of AE actually need to be installed or would I just need the serial number?
Hope this makes sense.
You don't need to have the previous version installed in your machine. You only need to have the serial number from the old version.
After Effects CS3 can be upgraded from AE 5.x or newer.
After Effects CS4 can be upgraded from AE 6.x or newer.
That's what I wanted to know...
Thank you for the help.
