Is there a way to open a Premiere CS5.5 project in CS5? I am trying to transfer a project done in CS5.5 by a colleage to my CS5 system. I've been avoiding CS5.5 because I, personally, had no need for it. I'm waiting for CS6. I would hate to purchase CS5.5 just to jump to CS6 in 6 months or so. This is a pro bono project, so there's no way to justify the move to CS5.5 based on $$. :-(
No backward compatibility. Options are
Official not backward compatible but you could try importing the CS5.5 into a CS5 project.
I have done it several times in the past, but success also depends on what effects have been used in CS5.5
Just give it a go.
CS5 gives me the same error when I try to import the CS5.5 project as it does when I try to open the project. The error message from CS5 is actually incorrect, but I understand the issue. When I try to import just a sequence CS5 hangs.
"The project was created in an older version of Premiere and cannot be opened. Please refer to the User Guide for import options".
