So Creative Suite 5 is out, and it looks like the ideal film makers package is Production Premium.
It is interesting that Adobe has been working to improve render and effects times by hooking into the nVidia CUDA technology to speed up rendering.
Sadly it looks like right now the Quadro cards are the only ones supporting this, which will cost you as much as the motherboard and uP did most likely!
Edit: Maybe other CUDA cards are supported too… just not to the same extent.
The other interesting thing is that the new CS5 requires 64 bit OS to work – and really likes to have a lot of memory.
I guess it is time to save up the pennies and start constructing a new PC that is greater than any PC before…!
