I'm reading and reading and hoping to confirm and have someone confirm install of AE CS5 on an 8 core mac (16 gigs of RAM) running Leopard 10.5.8.

Repeat, Leopard, not Snow Leopard

I know it's optimized and required for 64 Bit for PC, but the mac spec says "supports 64 bit"

So anyone running CS5 cleanly and successfully on 10.5.8?

My primary work Mac is running Mac OSX v10.5.8. After Effects CS5 runs fine on it.

What is it about the system requirements that isn't clear? It says that After Effects CS5 will run on Mac OSX v10.5.7 (with the implication that later versions work, too).

Is it that you think that Mac OSX v10.5.8 isn't a 64-bit operating system? It is. The kernel isn't, but the application layer is, and that's what matters.

Thanks Todd, I understood everything very well, thank you. I was looking for a practical "hey, yeah, loaded CS5 on my leopard machine and it works well"

regardless, I looked at your link and thanks for the info. I've placed my order for CS5. If anything goes wrong, I'll hold you personally responsible.

Just kidding of course.

thanks for responding to my post.
