This is probably a silly question but, is it possible to somehow open an adobe after fx version 9 windows project so it will open on a mac using adobe after effects 8?
Thanks Emmet?

No, but if you search this forum you'll find some discussions of how various people have manually converted their projects from a newer AE version to an older one. All approaches I've heard of are relatively time-consuming so, personally, I consider it a last resort ... especially with large complex projects.

Cross-platform is a separate issue ... the main things you'll have to deal with there are font and third-party plugin differences.

As David says, the cross-platform aspect is pretty easy. There are a few things to keep in mind: "Cross-platform considerations"

The ability to open a project in an older version is a different issue.

If you have both versions of After Effects on the same computer, you can use a somewhat laborious method to get most information from an After Effects CS4 project back to an After Effects CS3 project. See the tip at the bottom of this page.
