Synchronizing Animation to Audio Using After Effects tutorial

Hi can anyone help ?

https://library.creativecow.net/articles/ebberts_dan/audio_sync.php

I have downloaded the project files for this tutorial. I understand it was made in CS5.5 which i don't have but I do have CS6 bit it wont let me open it.
I am sure I have opened old projects with CS6 before .

Maybe i will have to resurrect an old machine.....

Thanks in advance

What error messages does it show when you try to open it? You can definitely open CS5.5 projects with CS6.

WAIT!

I just clicked on the link. That's not CS5.5 (which was AE version 10.5); that is actually After Effects VERSION 5.5! The newest version that could open one that old is AE version 9 (which is CS4).

See this page [link] for compatibility details.

ha ha yes .. it does indeed say 5.5 ..

My mistake I assumed it was CS5.5.


So I need a copy of CS 4 !

AE 5.5 was what I learned on . Fairly certain I don't have a copy though. If i remember correctly AE6 was when the docked panels were introduced. I used to undock everything to keep it old school.

There must be a copy of CS4 floating around a machine here somewhere. Or I might just follow the steps and rebuild it. I might post up a modern version when its done ..

Thanks for pointing out my error

Haha - it's okay. That whole CS naming convention throws everyone off.
The OpenSesame script might be helpful to you. http://aescripts.com/pt_opensesame/

I trust Dan won't mind that I've taken the liberty of updating his AE v5.5 file to CS6 (v11):
