Top reasons to upgrade to Adobe® Creative Suite® 5 Production Premium

Breakthrough native 64-bit performance—Work fluidly at HD and higher resolutions using all the available RAM in your system with native 64-bit support in Adobe Premiere® Pro CS5, After Effects® CS5, and Photoshop® CS5 Extended. Run multiple suite components efficiently thanks to new shared memory settings. Eliminate intermediate rendering when moving assets between After Effects, Adobe Premiere Pro, and Adobe Encore®, and experience faster performance between these components.

Adobe Mercury Playback Engine in Adobe Premiere Pro—Work dramatically faster thanks to the revolutionary native 64-bit, GPU-accelerated† Mercury Playback Engine, which provides rock-solid performance and stability, even at 4K resolution and beyond. Open projects rapidly, and create multilayer, effects-rich sequences without rendering.

† Supported NVIDIA graphics cards for GPU acceleration include Quadro CX (Windows®), Quadro FX 3800 (Windows), Quadro FX 4800 (Windows and Mac OS), Quadro FX 5800 (Windows), and GeForce GTX 285 (Windows and Mac OS). For an up-to-date list of supported cards, visit

Script-to-screen workflow through integration with Adobe Story*—Speed up production and post-production by leveraging integration with Adobe Story, a new Adobe CS Live online service* that allows you to collaborate on scriptwriting, create shot lists from your scripts in Adobe OnLocation™, and then develop a preliminary rough cut in Adobe Premiere Pro. CS Live online services are complimentary for a limited time—visit for details.

Roto Brush in Adobe After Effects—Isolate moving foreground elements from their backgrounds in a fraction of the time using the Roto Brush. Efficiently find the edges of complex foreground elements and fine-tune selection edges with extremely precise results.

Eye-popping 3D and naturalistic painting in Adobe Photoshop Extended—Create eye-popping 3D logos and artwork by extruding any text layer, Smart Object, selection, or layer mask. Paint more naturally with expressive new painting tools, and cleanly remove unwanted objects with Content-Aware Fill.

Roundtrip editing with other NLEs—Integrate CS5 Production Premium with your workflow, no matter which NLE you prefer. Move projects easily back and forth between Adobe Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro or Avid editing software.

Intuitive perspective drawing in Adobe Illustrator®—Represent depth and distance accurately on the flat surface of your Illustrator canvas. Generate perspective grids for 1-, 2- or 3-point linear perspectives automatically, with controls for horizon lines and vanishing points.

To use the new Roto Brush, just draw simple paint strokes inside the foreground object (left and inset), and let After Effects find the rest of the foreground object. In the final result (right), After Effects continues to isolate the foreground subject accurately even as he moves in subsequent frames.
