Hello, I checked the common threads but could not find the answer. How may I convert an AE5 file down to an AE4 file? I am working with someone who is helping me learn AE but he only had AE4. I do not want to keep reformatting my text, etc.

Any recommendations?

TIA,
Timothy

My only advice is "be patient".

There's a guy by the name of Lloyd Alvarez from aescripts.com, and he says that he's almost done making a script to do what you need.

Otherwise, the answer is "no": you can't backsave in AE.

The script is called Open Sesame and it is being written by Paul Tuersley no me, but we will be hosting it on aescripts.com.

Unfortunately we don't have a set release date yet, but it will be soon.

Cheers,
Lloyd

I just have to say thank you to Paul Tuersley for his amazing script!!! He was able to eliminate tedious hours of recreating text styles, colors and positioning from one version of AE to the other. THANK YOU AGAIN PAUL!

Sincerely,
Timothy

Is Open Sesame out yet. I can't find it on Aescripts and could really use it for a project. Any word on it?
Thanks in advance,
Michael

Just to let you know, OpenSesame has been released!
http://aescripts.com/pt_opensesame/

OpenSesame brings backwards compatibility to After Effects, exporting projects that can be opened in any version from CS3 or later. Projects are exported as human readable text files that can also be edited in a text editor or spreadsheet in various ways, such as changing text layers, colors, footage and file paths.
