    Questions about CS4

    Dan Jacobsen Level 1

      Hi folks,

       

      I'm thinking about buying CS4 for home. CS5 only works with a 64 bit OS doesn't it? So for now I'm stuck with CS4. It doesn't seem to be available though. All searches I've done lead to CS5.

       

      Is it still possible to run AE on a 32 bit OS?

       

      Also, and I know this is a silly question... but I don't suppose this time they have made it possible to open a CS5 project on CS4? I'll be using CS5 at work so I guess it won't be possible to bring work home with me.

       

      Cheers

          Correct.  However, for Windows users, a copy of 32bit CS4 After Effects is included with CS5, for those purchasers who don't have a 64bit OS just yet. 

           

          Adobe don't sell CS4 anymore.  You'll have to shop around for old stock or a second hand copy if you choose to purchase CS4.

          No change.  You cannot open CS5 AE projects in CS4 AE.

            Thanks Andrew. That's good to know.

            I guess I should really get myself Win 7 64 first
