I have a general question. if i have a version of AE and I save my file as a previous version (using the option included in the “save as” tab in AE)

example. If I had CS6 and I save it as CS5.5 or If I had CS5.5 and I save it as CS5, will it work properly. I have CS5, CS5.5 and CS6. i need to lower a file to CS4 for a client. I have never used that option. will it be good?

to backsave to cs4, you would need to make use of opensesame. BUT you also need cs4 installed on your system, to open the intermediate opensesame format and then save it as a proper cs4 file. CS4 is actually included when you buy the cs5 version, look at the add-ons disc.

another question though! when creating AE templates for VH, do you guys create it on the latest version of AE you have and then you lower it down or just do the contrary?

I often create in CS5 since it works faster on my mac. However I do sometimes revert CS6 projects back to CS5. Yet it can bring troubles both ways. I’m working on a CS5 template right now and it seems some of the Cycore effects in CS5 such as CC Sphere give different results when you open the file in CS6. There are more AE native effects that won’t work well when you convert between version such as the “Set Matte” effect. So always be sure to check your files on potential errors.
