Today, the Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 (5.0.4) update was released.
If Adobe Application Manager hasn’t already told you about this, go ahead and check for new updates for Premiere Pro CS5 by choosing Help > Updates.
Later—but not yet—you’ll be able to directly download the update packages from the download page for Mac OS, using the “Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 5.0.4 update” link. This page will be updated when the direct download is available.
This Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 (5.0.4) update itself includes one bug fix, which addresses a problem with crashes and other problems on Mac computers with ATI cards. Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 does not have this problem.
Since updates are cumulative, installing the CS5 (5.0.4) update will also give you the many, many fixes and improvements in the CS5 (5.0.3) and CS5 (5.0.2) updates. Of course, you can also get these improvements and many more by upgrading to Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5.
If you have difficulty with this update, please bring questions and issues to the Adobe Premiere Pro forum. Don’t ask questions in the comments on this blog post, which fewer people will see.
We have also been working with several providers of plug-ins, codecs, and hardware devices to assist them in updating their software to fix some errors and crashes. Please take this opportunity to download and install updated codecs, plug-ins, and drivers from these providers, as relevant to your work.
