You are. So far, only Photoshop is actually a 64 bit program.
Adobe hired political consultants to do their advertising for CS4. Jim here still thinks that Adobe CS4 is CUDA native ;)
Hell if you go to the Nvidia site they make you think that only Nvidia cards bring GPU benefits to CS4. When in fact that not true.
Actually you can use more than 4 gigs RAM when rendering with Vista 64. But they aren't true 64 apps like photoshop (SLACKERS).
Hopefully CS5 will be CS4.2.0 only 64bit. No new features just working right out the box.
That's a real shame.
but I like CS4 interface - and of course there other good features (such as different aspect ratios in same project..)
What is CUDA native ?
An person indigenous to the continent In-vi-dia.
CUDA is an open source way to get the Nvidia graphic card to help the computer crunch numbers. Right now to get to work with Premiere you have to by a video card that comes with a plug-in and costs 2 grand or buy a program called Bad-a-Boom.
CUDA isn't Open Source, it's a proprietary C+ API that software developers (like Adobe) can use to access the parallel processing capabilities native to GPUs.
I have ATI (X1950XT 256 MB) card so I don't really need that right?

Need it for what? You need a video card to hook up your monitors with. :)

Agreed. I really really hope Adobe will take some time to clean up everything. In last few versions their apps have gotten so horribly bloated, buggy and unstable :( -- How I miss how rock solid Photoshop 7 was :(

Well atleast us Mac users have OpenCL to look forward too; now if only Adobe would use it in the next version of CS :)
OpenCL should benefit all computer users, not just Macs. I know ATI is pushing this as a standard model for gaming physics over the proprietary PhysX engine from nVidia.
