PPRO CS5 is for 64bit only.
It was well advertised as such so should not come as any surprise to anyone.
Makes your topic heading a bit misleading and mischievous.
You don't have to be such a smart *** about it. It was CLEARLY a typo considering it was spelled correctly in the post. And how is it misleading? The topic CLEARLY states what i just posted.
Its misleadinfg because obviously Adobe did update CS5.
Infact ..the latest update is the second (dot) update.
To update backward to 32 bit would be a retrograde step dont you think?
The Premiere Pro CS5 release was largely about performance, stability, and the ability to edit more demanding formats. All of these benefit from (even require) Premiere Pro being a 64-bit application.
If you have lighter needs there are more lightweight NLEs out there for you. But the Pro video world needs the power and flexibility of 64 bit. Going 64bit only was definately the right choice for adobe for PrPro.
And I agree your topic post is misleading. CS5 has had 2 updates already.
Not sure exactly how it shakes out, but with many/all "suites," doesn't CS4 (32-bit) also ship?
That would be the "fix" for one on a 32-bit system. Obviously, they would have CS4, and not CS5 (until they upgrade to a 64-bit OS), but would have an NLE, with a newer one, waiting in the wings.
what a gip
I think you'd be doing that to yourself by not upgrading to Win 7 64 bit and CS5. 32 bits is a thing of the past. Time to move on. (Hell, there's even talk of Windows 8 being a 128 bit OS.)
