Red Giant Software Announces Support for Adobe Creative Suite 5

Red Giant Software today announced that its products will support the recently announced Adobe® Creative Suite®. Magic Bullet® Looks, Knoll Light Factory, Trapcode Suite, and Pro Keying Suite will be the first products available for Adobe After Effects® CS5 and/or Adobe Premiere® Pro CS5. Red Giant Software will release these Adobe CS5 updaters within two weeks of Adobe CS5 shipping. All other products will be available for Adobe CS5 by this summer. The Adobe CS5 updaters from Red Giant Software are only applicable to users that choose to upgrade to Adobe CS5.

Benefits of 64-Bit Computing

The Adobe CS5 updaters for Red Giant Software products offer support for 64-bit computing, which provide many benefits including:
  • Better use of memory to allow multiple applications to run with increased performance
  • Support of RAW content with the capacity to handle any resolution up to 5K and beyond
  • Smooth playback of multiple streams of video in real-time in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5
  • More flexible workflows with the ability to handle multiple open applications at once

"With these 64-bit updaters, we were focused on taking advantage of greater memory capacity and reliability. We had a dedicated staff of engineers writing code and another team testing our software to ensure compatibility with Adobe Creative Suite 5. The project was a big undertaking, and as a result this upgrade packs a lot of performance for users," said Sean Safreed, Co-Owner and Director of Products at Red Giant Software."
