I am have just purchased the student version of CS5.5 Master Collection and am about to load it on to my MacBook Pro which only has a 32 bit video card.
In the information on the trial version (which I was using and have now uninstalled) it stated that complimentary copies of Premiere Pro CS4 would be provided when you purchase the suite for 32 bit support.
However reading the installation PDF on the disc the 32 bit support versions only refer to Windows OS.
There is absolutely no mention of 32 bit support for Mac?
Am I stuck with a version of Premiere that I am unable to use because I'm on Mac?
Just as an aside using the trial version I was able to use Premiere CS5.5 with no problem but when I exported a project to Quicktime the file was not recognised by any software and so does not play.
>32 bit video card
One - what is the exact brand and model?
Two - as far as I know, the 64bit requirement is for the CPU and Operating System, not the graphics card
I don't have a link handy, but I did read in another message that even if the CPU and OS are 64bit, CS5 absolutely REQUIRES the SSE (I think is the term) instruction set in the CPU's firmware, and a CPU that does not have the microcode will prohibit CS5 from installing
I proberbly sound really dumb then - Sorry.
So I am mixing up the bits requirement for the CPU with the bits requirement of the Graphics card.
