Adobe Production Premium CS5 is the latest evolution of Adobe's software post-production solution available for both Mac and Windows®, and probably one of the most significant releases yet. Why? Because it's Adobe's first native 64-bit software, which in conjunction with a 64-bit operating system allows it to use as much RAM as you can afford for your computer.
This sort of change doesn't come along very often. The last time there was a big change, from 16-bit to 32-bit addressing, was over 20 years ago! Back then, the idea of a personal computer which might use the entire 32-bit address space (4GB), and more, was almost unthinkable, but that's where we are now. In fact we've been there for a little while, with Adobe's CS3 & CS4 offerings regularly hitting the "RAM limit" buffers, often with an undignified exit to the desktop and much user frustration. Now, with an "end-to-end" combination of 64-bit hardware, operating system and application software, our game-plan moves from the metaphorical restrictions of a 32-bit back yard into a super-size 64-bit stadium.
So what are the highlights of Production Premium CS5?
