I have Final Cut Studio on my imac5. It works fine. I have even used Motion a little.
But I want to make the jump to Adobe Production Premium CS5, mostly because After Effects really sets Adobe apart from the Apple software. I use Premiere and After Effects CS3 at work and really like the workflow.
Problem is I don't have enough money now to upgrade the software and get a bigger better computer
Has anyone done this on an imac?
I have a 32 bit system. Which I think could be a problem, but the Abode site says "The lack of 32-bit support does not affect the majority of Mac computers that use Intel processors. The only Mac users affected by the lack of 32-bit support are those who have Intel based Mac computers with Intel Core™ Duo (single-core) processors. Mac OS X Leopard and Snow Leopard are already 64-bit capable and ready to use additional memory. All you need to do is add more RAM to start seeing the benefits of native 64-bit operating system support in After Effects CS5 and Adobe Premiere Pro CS5."
I have a Intel Core 2 Duo with 1 processor, total number of cores is 2.
Also was wondering if anyone has tried to upgrade imac RAM.
As always, thanks, CC is a big help.
