Demo/Tutorial

HOW TO USE

Open the project you want to convert, run OpenSesame and click Export Project. A log file will be created listing any items that can't be exported. If you don't have the version of After Effects required to open the project you should get the person who created it to complete the first step using OpenSesame, then send you the exported text file.

Launch the earlier version of After Effects (CS3 or later) and run OpenSesame. Click Import Project, then choose the exported OS project file.

NOTE: Some parts of projects can't be exported due to scripting limitations. The following features aren't currently supported:

  • Paint, Rotobrush and Puppet Pin effects.
  • Text style support is CS4+ only and doesn't include features like kerning, vertical and paragraph text, or multiple text styles on one layer.
  • Proxies.
  • Custom data values. Effect properties with custom data values can't be exported, such as the Levels Histogram and the Hue/Saturation effect. In these cases you could use the Levels (Individual Controls) and Color Balance (HLS) effects instead.

TRIAL VERSION:

The free trial version is limited so that effects aren't added to imported projects.
