hello all,

Can you advise how to save a CS6 document to be editable in CS5.5 (particularly Photoshop)? I have tried Save As and Export but have not discovered any options to do so.

thanks,

Berabby

Premiere Pro is not backwards compatible.

I'm pretty sure that psd files can open in earlier Photoshop versions, but I'm not 100% sure.

Open your project file (make a copy for safe) in text editor.

Then change Version="25"  to Version="24" in <Project ObjectID="1" ... row.

After that you can open or import this project in SC5.5.

BR!

Projects saved in CS6 can be opened in CS5 (not sure about 5.5 but i think they'll open). Premiere just asks for a new filename (as it does when you try to open a CS5 project in CS6).

I have tried and I can confirm

Thank you, kindly, Kostas—so far the only thing I found that will not be

recognized

in CS5.5 from CS6 in Photoshop is the new Clone Move/Content Aware tool.

Best, Ess

Premiere crashes when I do this and try to open the new edited file. I don't know why...

I am in a situation where I am taking over for someone who used Premiere CS 6 and I now have to edit their project but I am using 5.5. I am still in contact with my predecessor but he has never saved a 6 proj as 5.5. Does anyone know where I can find a step by step example I can send him to save the 6 project in 5.5? Thank you

You can't officially save PrPro CS6 project as PrPro CS5.5.

As said in the comment #2, you can open up PrPro CS6 .prproj file in a script editor (e.g. Adobe ExtendScript Toolkit) or even a text editor (preferably, which respects formatting, but doesn't add its own formatting) and then in the fourth line replace Version="25" with Version="24":

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<PremiereData Version="3">

    <Project ObjectRef="1"/>

    <Project ObjectID="1" ClassID="62ad66dd-0dcd-42da-a660-6d8fbde94876" Version="24">

Keep in mind that everything is at your own peril, and new PrPro CS6 features can't be converted (properly interpreted) to PrPro CS5.5. Some changes in GUI can even cause a crash, as described in the comment #6. To overcome crash issues you can rely on a good old trick of importing a project into a project (i.e. create a brand new PrPro CS5.5 project and import into it the one, within which you replaced Version="25" with Version="24").
