Convert your
project files back to earlier versions of After Effects

From CC 2019 to CS6 in seconds.

If you need to convert After Effects AEP project files from a newer to an older version, even from CC 2019 (16.0) to CS6 (11.0), without all the hassle of installing all previous versions of After Effects, you are in the right place.

Why an older version?

There are many reasons why you might prefer to jump a few generations back and work with an older version of After Effects: project compatibility, corporate policy, your company's team guidelines, stability, speed and performance, the removed features you need to use such as multiprocessor rendering, H264 or Quicktime support, the ability to save an RAM Preview directly to MP4 and hundreds of other reasons. 

Official Way vs Smart Way

The official way to convert projects to an older version

Unfortunately if you want to save a project file created in the newest version of After Effects as a file in a much older version you must:
 ○ install all intermediate versions of After Effects
 ○ launch the application
 ○ open your project
 ○ save it as the previous version
 ○ exit After Effects and launch its previous version
 ○ open your project
 ○ save it as the previous version
 ○ ... and so on.

Repeat these steps for every one of the intermediate After Effects versions, until you convert your project to your desired older version.
