Buy Adobe After Effects CS4, Get CS5.5 Free

August 8th, 2011 27 comments

Get CS5.5 Production Premium Including CS4

Even though Creative Suite 5 has been out for over a year, and CS 5.5 since the spring, some components of Creative Suite 4 remain surprisingly popular… In particular, the two applications After Effects CS4 and Premiere Pro CS4, which were released in the fall of 2008, are still sought by many. At first this might seem odd, but there’s good reason… Why does this duo of earlier tools remain in demand?

It’s no doubt owing to the 64-bit-only requirement for those two products (and only those two products) in Creative Suite 5… Adobe explains the reason for this is because developing in native 64-bit gives the best optimized performance benefits with the demanding technical requirements of working with high definition video. But these won’t run on many older computers.

Note this is more of a Windows factor and does not affect the majority of Mac systems using Intel proces­sors… But with no 32-bit Windows versions of After Effects CS5.5 or Premiere Pro CS5.5 offered, perhaps it shouldn’t be surprising the CS4 releases continue to be needed. After all, statistics show that 43% of the broad Internet community still runs on Windows XP – making it still the most widely-used Microsoft Windows platform – but which isn’t supported for those CS5 apps.

The question then becomes, what to do about it? If you’re still on 32-bit or XP, but need one of these products after the free trial has run out, would your best choice be to buy the previous generation version of CS4? Doubtless your next computer will be 64-bit – so wouldn’t it be better to invest and get both – CS4 (for current use) and CS5.5 (for future growth) – two for the price of one? Especially since these two latest releases have been getting stellar reviews from many sources

Adobe Deal: Save 50%(!) on Premiere Pro CS5.5 or Production Suite

July 8th, 2011 Leave a comment

[UPDATE – See all of Adobe’s current deals & discounts!]

Adobe has launched a true barnburner of a deal, a “first” for owners of competitive software and also for owners of many versions of Adobe products who can now buy the latest CS5.5 release of Premiere Pro or the full Production Premium suite (Windows or Mac) for half-off their normal prices with coupon code, and the offer is available all over the world…

Half-Price Coupon Code: CS5.5 Production Premium

It’s officially targeted at video users and producers, but because the suite contains products like Photoshop Extended, Illustrator, Flash Professional, Audition, and Flash Catalyst in addition to Premiere Pro* and After Effects* (see the full list of applications included), many could take advantage at these prices. For example, the normal price of Photoshop CS5 Extended is US$999, but with this special you get that plus an entire suite of 10 other products for US$849 total!

Apple Final Cut Pro and Avid Media Composer customers can receive the 50% savings off the full versions of Premiere Pro CS5.5 or CS5.5 Production Premium – but you must use the promotion code linked here: SWITCH. If you need more convincing, see the Top 10 Reasons to Switch to Premiere Pro CS5.5 (now just $399), or learn why Adobe is offering this sale.

Owners of any of the Adobe tools listed below are also eligible to receive the same price (50% off the full version) on the Production Premium suite, under a parallel offer…

Grace Period for Free Upgrade to New Adobe CS5.5

April 13th, 2011 46 comments

[UPDATE (March 2012) – Adobe’s grace period for free upgrades to CS6 is here!]

Adobe launched Creative Suite 5.5 this week and it is open for preorder but not shipping yet… The company says the release date will be in May, and in the meantime you can still buy Creative Suite 5 (or download the CS5 free trials) if you need something going today.

Upgrade eligibility after new product announcement

And, if you bought Adobe CS5 recently (a suite edition or an individual application like InDesign, Dreamweaver, Flash, After Effects, Premiere Pro) or if you purchase any CS5 product now, you may be entitled to a free upgrade to CS5.5 when it is released.

Historically, Adobe’s policy for major product releases has been that you may qualify for a free upgrade if you buy the previous version near or after the new product has been announced, but before it ships… The advantages are threefold: (1) you get software available for immediate download, (2) you get a more mature release if you prefer and can move up later at your leisure, and (3) you win a lower upgrade cost (e.g., from CS2, CS3, or CS4), because you’re buying fewer steps to go up. For Design Premium it’s $150 less to upgrade now from CS3 to CS5, than to upgrade from CS3 to CS5.5.

The good news is this post-announce free upgrade policy remains in effect, according to an Adobe Q&A Session earlier this week… So it looks like you can get the best of both worlds and buy or upgrade to CS5, and then later get a free update to CS 5.5 when you — and it — are ready. (Just look for “Can’t wait? Order the previous version today” on Adobe’s page…)
