As a user of a 64-bit operating system, each announcement about a new 64-bit application is a source of great joy. It represents another step towards a pure 64-bit future. Now, Adobe has advanced a great deal towards that goal by deciding to entirely abandon 32-bit versions of their Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects in CS "Next" coming "not anytime soon".
While Adobe had started with the process of moving their application to 64-bit in CS2 with 64-bit versions of Premiere Pro and After Effects, and these application have been released in both 32- and 64-bit in CS2, CS3, and CS4, however now Adobe wants to focus on the 64-bit versions of these applications without having to lug around the weight of supporting an outdated platform. So the CS4 version of Premiere Pro and After Effects will be the last ones to come out for 32-bit computers.
While porting these applications to 64-bit makes a lot of sense, it is difficult to see advantage in restricting the applications to 64-bit only. However, the advantages are many and overwhelming.
The very reason to switch to 64-bit computing is for better performance and access to greater amounts of memory. With native support for working with 64-bit numbers, 64-bit computers make processing large numbers faster, and can significantly speed up application which perform such operations, such as multimedia applications, and especially those which deal with encoding and transcoding.
