Actually Adobe 6 with windows NT will render the fastest.
1 and 3 render the same if you have only 4 gigs if you have 16 gigs and an duel chip computer then 64 will render faster
2 and 4 render the same if you have only 4 gigs if you have 16 gigs and an duel chip computer then 64 will render faster
You should go with Vista 64 because a year from now companies won't support XP anymore the same way windows 2000 or NT is gradually not supported.
You know your question is really subjective, besides who has a couple computers with all those set-ups? Nobody here. This is a user forum. And the biggest problem people seem to have with CS4 isn't the speed of the render it's that they can't get it render or render correctly for them.
1. and 3. could give you issues as 2.0 is not certified for a 64 bit OS. That leaves 2 and 4, which means CS4 for you. And since XP 64 is no longer purchasable, that leaves only Vista 64.
Looks like #4 is the winner by default.
What are you referring to when you say "render"? Are you talking about rendering the timeline, or are you talking of rendering to a specific codec format? What is the source media?
Switch to XP 32bit with PPro 2.
Avoid XP 64bit cause there are several issues and it isn't also a certified OS to work with Premiere.
I have XP 32bit installed, both CS2 and CS4
I enjoy editing, rendering, creating in CS2...it isn't such a waste of precious time like the buggy CS4.
