Red Giant Software - Adobe CS5 Compatibility Posted almost 10 years ago by Adam Knight - Posted in General

Adobe announced CS5 versions of  Adobe® After Effects® and  Adobe Premiere® Pro on April 12, 2010. The CS5 versions are 64-bit ONLY. What this means is that these programs only run in 64-bit mode on 64-bit operating systems, including Mac OS X 10.5 an 10.6, and Windows Vista 64-bit and Windows 7 64-bit.


What products will support Adobe Creative Suite 5?

Our entire currently shipping product line will support Adobe After Effects CS5 and Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.


When will the 64-bit upgrades to CS5 be available?

Magic Bullet Looks, Knoll Light Factory, Trapcode Suite, and Pro Keying Suite will be the first products available for Creative Suite 5. Red Giant Software will release CS5 upgrades within two weeks of Adobe CS5 shipping. 


All other products will be available for CS5 this summer.


Who needs to get the CS5 upgrades?

The CS5 upgrades from Red Giant Software are only applicable to users that choose to upgrade to After Effects CS5 and Premiere Pro CS5. You do NOT need to get the latest version if you are not using CS5.


How much do upgrades cost?

  • CS5 upgrades for all individual products will cost $29 USD each.
  • Trapcode Suite customers can upgrade the entire Suite for a flat price of $99.
  • Magic Bullet Suite customers will be able to upgrade the entire Suite for a flat price of $99 USD – coming this summer.
  • Magic Bullet PhotoLooks and Knoll Light Factory for Photoshop users qualify for a free update to Adobe Photoshop CS5. These updates will be coming in early summer.  Customers will be notified when the updates are available and will be provided details on how to obtain them.

Where can I purchase the upgrades to CS5?

The upgrades to CS5 will be available as a separate upgrade option for each product. Please check the individual store pages by clicking the buy link for the product. Visit: Store.


Are there advantages to using the 64-bit version of plug-ins in CS5?

Yes! The 64-bit plug-ins can access all the memory on your system. Plus, the new versions of After Effects and Premiere Pro are faster than previous versions. So you will see speed gains (depending on your system and graphics card). Note that if  you are using CS5 you must upgrade your Red Giant plug-ins.  Your existing 32-bit plug-ins for CS3 and CS4 will not work in CS5. To learn more, visit: Red Giant and 64-bit.


Will the CS5 versions of plug-ins work on Mac OS X 10.4 or Windows XP 64-bit?

No. The CS5 applications require a 64-bit operating system and Apple Mac OS X 10.4 is not a 64-bit OS. Microsoft did have a 64-bit version of Windows XP but this operating system is NOT supported by Adobe or Red Giant Software.
