    That's a little disappointing, but I'm hoping the ability to use more RAM will speed up playback for my HD comps. The rest of the new features look interesting. More details on the "Dozens of Enhancements"?

    Thanks, Todd, That is an impressive list! I'm upgrading, but I drank the Kool-Aid a long time ago .

     

    Does it say anywhere when it ships or are they saving that for the big show tomorrow?

    Way cool.

    Unfortunately, my company will wait about 6 months to upgrade to CS5, if we can convince IT to do it at all.

    Holy fricking frack frack frick! Roto Brush for the win!

     

    Sorry, my giddiness is a bit hard to control. Of course, it may take quite a while for me to get the powers that be to upgrade me, but I think the performance argument alone should do it.

    Here are thoughts so far about CS5:

     

    Exciting things:

     

    -Freeform is a really great addition. To my surprise it seems to even support AE-lights which was a very positive surprise!

    -Rotobrush naturally is really great news, no more struggling with masks when rotoscoping (I hope)

    -64-bit performance is really really nice to have finally

     

    Slight disappointments:

     

    -Still no real 3D or ability to import 3D-files without Photoshop. The experiences with Photoshop import were not very good with CS4 and I didn't read about any work done on that in the change list. I hope I'm wrong on this one!

     

    -I was really really hoping that this would be implemented in AE CS5 http://grail.cs.washington.edu/projects/videoenhancement/videoEnhancem ent.htm After all, there is an adobe employee involved with project. So this was a bit disappointing for me, but I guess I just have to wait a bit longer.

    "I was really annoyed at all of the YouTube videos that said that was going to be in CS5. "

     

    What?!?  You mean PS CS5 won't actually clean up my room and make me lunch?

    In scripting you can now access to the label property of a layer and change it's label color.

     

    I've been told that there are some other scripting improvements, but we'll have to wait for Todd's list
