For those who installed Adobe Creative Suite 4 and got frustrated with how slow (yes, slower than CS3 and even CS2) Premiere Pro CS4 handles its realtime rendering when previewing an un-rendered timeline, here’s the good news: updates are out and they definitely patched Premiere Pro CS4 back on track.
CS4 is Adobe’s first Creative Suite enhanced for 64-bit operating systems. Reviews say that installing CS4 on a 64-bit Windows (my OS is a 64-bit Windows 7 RC build 7100) increases its stability and performance, especially of Premiere Pro.
Here are the updates from the Adobe website. Patch with 4.01 first then 4.1. Have fun!
