Safe to run CS 5 and 5.5 on the same machine?
on Jul 18, 2011 at 12:47:23 pm

I am still working of a few projects in After Effects CS5 and don't want to switch in the middle of these (in part because I am relying on a lot of plugins). Yet, for a new project I would like to use some of the new functionality of 5.5. Does anyone have any experience with running both versions on the same computer (I have a Mac btw)?

AE CS5 and CS5.5 will run on the same system.

AE CS5.5 is also the first version of After Effects that's capable of saving down. In AE CS5.5, you can save down to CS5 [link].

No problems at all. CS 5.5, CS 5 and CS 4 all on the same machine.

I know you can have them open at the same time but I don't think it's a good idea.. Mine went really slow with both.. Try going to AE preferences>Memory & multi processing to see how much ram is reserved for other apps.
and also you can open Activity Monitor in mac utilities, to see whats happening with your computer when both are running.
Best bet is probably just to transfer your cs5 plugins to your cs5.5.
Good luck!
