For those interested in upgrading to CS6 the major change for Bridge is that it is now a 64 bit program!
This will mean ACR opened in Bridge will also be 64 bit program rather than the 32 bit version of the past.
Bridge is more of a processor intensive program, rather than a memory intensive program, so not sure what that will mean for performance, but will not hurt as program can now access more than 3.3 gigs of RAM if available.
Any chance that my mpeg playback will return?
What do you mean with return? did it go away for you and if yes then when?
I can view Mpeg in content panel and preview panel and when active in preview hitting space bar the movie plays in the preview panel without problems in both Bridge CS5 and CS6.
Santa is a long time away, you can try the Beta for CS6 while it still active ( visit Adobe Labs for this Beta)
I lost the ability to preview/play HDV (mpeg) clips captured in Premiere in the upgrade from CS3 to CS4, hoped that CS5 would cure it, but no. So now I await delivery of CS6 Master Collection next week! At the suggestion of Harm M. I did not install any third-party CODECs to correct situation.
Meanwhile, back to rendering 9 :30sec spots for the 1000 Islands region. AME rocks!
Let the forum know how CS6 works on mpeg4 and HDV. Am sure others have this same question.
I know many have tried adding CODEC's to Bridge to try to solve thumbnail and playback issues. But have heard from Adobe Engineers that these new CODEC's can cause problems with Premiere.
A Premiere engineer was going to work with Bridge engineers to solve mutual problems. That was a year ago, but have not heard whether they were successful or not.
For those not in the loop, CS6 is scheduled to ship May 6.
Any chance that my mpeg playback will return? Just put my order in for CS6 Master Suite, just waiting for Santa now.
I have one mpeg4 test video on my computer. Was converted from another format just to test how big it was and how the quality played.
On CS5 the thumbnail displays, but there is no playback bar so apparently video program does not see it.
On CS6 beta it works just like the other video formats.
So if this test is valid you could be good to go!
Let us know how your video works.
