  • projects CC 2015 will not open in CS5.5

    Hi there,

    I finally managed to upgrade my Mac OS so that I could upgrade Premiere to CS5.5. BUT my project files from CC 2015 will not open.

    Premiere states the “Project is damaged. Opening impossible.” Apparently this is typical.

    I have tried not only to open, but also to import. No success.

    I have tried opening and re-saving on a windows machine, no sign of damage. But the newly saved version will not open in CS5.5.

    Finally I managed to start up an old copy of CC2015 again. The project I was trying to open is fine, not damaged.

    How do I open an old project successfully in CS5.5?

    Thank you!

    You are trying to open a doc created in CC 2015 into CS 5.5?

    Was that even possible then?

    It seems to me that the project files made in the older versions of Adobe Premiere Pro may be incompatible with the new Premiere Pro since it could be missing some of the features that are available in CC 2015 but not in CS5.5 since that came out 4 years prior to it. Every year they seem to add some new features. If I am not mistaken, could be also because around CC 2015 started the subscription based service of Premiere Pro instead of a yearly or biyearly upgrade that was a one-off install and keep forever kind of thing. Sucks they removed that and its solely subscriptions now. I could be wrong of course but makes sense when it comes to compatibility. Hope it helps.

    You cannot open a 2015 project in 5.5

    You can try this: no guarantees.
