I am using After effects at school and they run on PC (with CS3). At home I work on a brand new iMAC OSX Leopard (with CS4). After Effects in Leopard recognizes the file I start to work on at school. But if I work on it on my iMAC, when I open the files in After Effects on school's PCs, it won't open. Is there anyway to get compatibility on both sides?
The issue isn't cross-platform, it's cross-version.
After Effects is not backwards-compatible (projects saved in a newer version cannot be opened in an older version).
Either the school has to update to CS4, or you'll have to install CS3 at home and maintain version parity.
Thank you. I thought CS3/CS4 didn't matter so much, but I was wrong.
