I have just upgraded from the 6.5 that I have used since about 2007 to CC and I need to open all my old projects but they won't.

Solutions?

Thanks,

Fred

Ooh, this could get tricky, not to mention a bit indirect.

You may need to open those projects in an interim version of AE, save them, and then repeat the process using an even later version of AE, working your way up to AE version 11 (aka CS6). From there, you would be good to go.

Someone knows what that progression of AE versions would be. I wish I was one of them.

After Effects CS5.5 (v10.5) was the last version to read projects from AE 6.5. Ae CS6 and CC can open projects from After Effects 7.0 and later.

Apparently you can still download the 30-day demo of CS5 to do you conversions:

(Thanks to Todd for pointing this out [link].)

Darn...I saw an older post that mentioned basically the same thing but I was hoping that a better solution had been created over time.

I'll have to continue to build on my old AE 6.5 computer and just import the finished media into my AVID on my new computer until I can get that process going.

Thanks,

Fred

Yup, that's the best policy.

People wiser than I have said, "Never, EVER change a workflow in the middle of a project." And then I learned the hard way they were right.
