Chapter: Compositing Tools and Techniques
Topic: Tips and Techniques
So you want to open a project saved in After Effects CS3 in an earlier version like After Effects 7.0? Wish there was a way to avoid redoing your entire project just because a client hasn’t upgraded yet? Wish that Adobe would let you do a Save to XML just like in Final Cut Pro? Sorry about the rant, but currently your only hope of opening a project saved in a newer version of After Effects is a manual process that involves a lot of copying and pasting.
