Le Conditionnel Passé in spoken French

In spoken French, do Conditionnel Passé and Le Futur Antérieur sound noticeable different? It seems like it would be confusing.

Hi Anni,

If I have understood your question correctly this will happen only in the first person as the auxiliary verb will have an -s ( conditionnel) or no -s  in the futur.

j'aurai vu ( will have seen ----> j'aurais vu ( I would have seen)

je serai parti ( I will have left) ---> je serais parti ( I would have left )

but from the context, you will know which tense it is. 

Hope this helps!
