AE 6.5 to CS5 questions
by Zac Taylor on Mar 23, 2011 at 6:19:07 pm
Hello. I looked in previous threads but did not see an answer to my question, so I appoligize if this has been asked before.
I recently got a new computer and upgraded from windows XP 32 bit to windows 7 64 bit. AE 6.5 does not seem to work properly and so I am consideing buying AE CS5. I have many projects I do not want to lose (or have time to redo) Will I be able to open and or edit my old 6.5 projects on CS5?
I hope so!
If not is there a way to make 6.5 work properly on windows 7?
Thanks for any and all help.

CS5 can open or import projects created in AE 6.0 or later.
[Tudor "Ted" Jelescu]"CS5 should be able to open all your 6.5 projects as long as you have all the plugins used in the original project."
Remember that CS5 is 64-bit, and requires updates to all your plugins. Your current plugins from 6.5 will not work, and must be updated. Some updates are free, some are paid upgrades; it varies by publisher and product.
Also, sometimes vastly different versions of a plugin do not automatically translate and must be redone by hand -- see this recent thread Installing older plug-ins [link].
