Adobe has launched the new Adobe Creative Suite 5 (CS5). The software line-up includes Creative Suite 5 Master Collection, Creative Suit 5 Design Premium, Creative Suite 5 Web Premium, Creative Suite 5 Production Premium and Creative Suite 5 Design Standard.
In addition to 250 new integrated features, the vendor claims engineering breakthroughs have increased the product’s speed and precision. Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects are now 64-bit applications on both Mac and Windows, allowing users to work more fluidly on high-resolution projects.
The vendor claims the Nvidia GPU-accelerated Adobe Mercury Playback Engine also allows users to open projects faster, refine high-definition sequences in real-time and play back complex projects quickly.
“By coupling sophisticated online business analytics with dazzling creative tools, we’re ensuring that publishers, designers and marketers can create, deliver and optimise beautiful, high-impact digital experiences across media and devices,” Adobe CEO, Shantanu Narayen, said.
Adobe education director Asia-Pacific, John Treloar, claimed the new platform was beneficial in an educational setting as well.
“CS5 completes the creative workflow and blurs the borders between publisher and developer, producer and editor, photographer and designer,” he said.
