From the Author:

Creating Motion Graphics 5th Edition for CS5 is a comprehensive reference guide to all the features in Adobe After Effects CS5. Project files on the DVD are for CS5 only.

If you are using CS4, then check out the previous version, 4th Edition for CS3, and then download the free PDF from our website to upgrade it to CS4: crishdesign.com/books/Creating-Motion-Graphics/index.html)

If you are new to After Effects, you might prefer to start with our other book, After Effects Apprentice, which is designed as a step-by-step workbook (12 Lessons) to get you up to speed quickly on all the core techniques and major features. The 2nd Edition is for CS4, but if you are using CS5, there's a PDF on our website that points out the very minor differences you'll encounter: crishdesign.com/books/After-Effects-Apprentice/index.html

Any questions about which version is best for you, please email us via our website.
