      Hi.  I was just wondering.  If I produce work in After Effects CS4 on a 32 bit computer, will I be able to open it on a 64bit computer CS5 version?

       

      cheers

          Yes.

           

          Keep in mind that you need to have CS5 versions of all of the plug-ins used in the project installed on the 64-bit computer.

            Thats kool.  Just out of interests as your an Adobe employee, is there a work around to get After Effects CS5 onto a 32 bit computer?  Also, why did Adobe decide to only produce CS5 for a 64 bit?  Seems a bit odd to me.

              No. It's a 64-bit application, so it needs a 64-bit OS and processor.

              The performance and stability improvements that went into CS5 required that After Effects CS5 be a 64-bit application. See this page.
