Future versions of After Effects will be 64-bit only
Michael Coleman has just given a piece of news on his blog that I think will make a lot of people very happy:
“Today we are announcing that the next version of Adobe After Effects will be a native 64-bit application.”
Michael also goes into more detail about what “64-bit” means for After Effects users.
Simon Hayhurst has also given the news on the ProVideo Coalition website:
“CS4 will be the last version of Adobe’s leading video applications to support 32 bit operating systems.”
In this article, Simon also provides links to an FAQ list about the transition and a white paper about the benefits of using After Effects and other applications on 64-bit operating systems.
If you have questions about the future of After Effects and other Adobe digital video applications, leave a comment for Simon on the article on the ProVideo Coalition website or a comment for Michael on his blog post. Don’t ask me, since I’ll just direct you to Simon and Michael.
For a little more information on the benefits that you can get now using After Effects CS4 on 64-bit operating systems, see this post: “CS4 Production Premium on 64-bit operating systems”.
