Convert an old AE 5.5 Project
on Jun 1, 2019 at 7:33:59 pm

Hi

Would anyone still have an old version of AE - I need to convert the Project from 5.5 to the latest CC 2019.

Any help would be fantastic

Regards

Dave

Downlad the oldest version of CC you can. you can have multiple versions installed. Open the 5.5 file with it. save it. Then repeat the process in your new version. It ought to work.

Hi

The project file was created in version 5.5 and I don't have a copy of AE 5.5, only AE CC 2019

Doesn't it just convert when opening?

Hi,

No it says you need to use AE 5.5 to open and convert.

That's odd. It worked a year ago from CS5 to CC2018.

In that case I would go with Dave's suggestion.

Hi

I have asked Adobe - Older versions no longer viable

That is an old file! AE v5.5 was released in 2002.

If it helps any, the last version of Ae that could open a file from v5.5 is Ae CS4 (which itself is now quite old).

Many thanks for the info.

I am really looking for this old file to be converted by someone who still has an older version of AE.

Post the project - if it's CS5.5, I have a version of CS6 here, I keep around just for that purpose. If it's After Effects 5.5---I don't know if I have anything that goes back that far....

Hi

I think that version may convert the file. Are you able to do it for me? I can send you an email or an upload link

The last icon in the reply box will allow you to upload the file on the Cow, or if you want to put it on Dropbox and post a link, that will work too. I'm leaving 5EST today, so if you post it before then, I'll take care of it today, otherwise, it will be tomorrow.

It looks like the file was run through StuffIt, before you uploaded it. Just upload the .aep file without compression and let the Cow zip it. Post back here when you have uploaded the file.

Sorry, your project was not the CS5.5 version, but the 2002 AE 5.5 version. I don't have anything that goes back that far anymore. Unless you find someone who has kept all of their old software, I'm afraid you will have to rebuild the project.
