Staying up-to-date on CS4
We live in exciting times in the world of Production Premium. CS4 just shipped, and there’s already a free update that adds exciting new features to both Premiere Pro and After Effects. If your system isn’t connected to the internet, you’ll miss out on these exciting updates, so here’s how to get them.
First, make sure and bookmark this page: http://www.adobe.com/downloads/updates/ This page is your gateway to getting the MOST out of CS4 Production Premium.
Second, you’ll need to get ALL the updates. Unfortunately, the updates are issued product-by-product. At the time of this writing, there are updates for:
Adobe Media Encoder,
and Device Central.
Plus, there are a TON of free scores for Soundbooth CS4 that can be downloaded here.
Select the individual product in the list, and look for any CS4 updates available. Download, copy to your Production Premium workstation, and run the update.
Each update has a full listing of what’s being added. For example, the Premiere Pro update adds a new FCP Importer, audio export for Pro Tools, and more. There’s also a feature that allows Premiere Pro to take advantage of more than 2 GB of RAM on 64-bit systems, which is HUGE!
