Entries in 64bit (2)


64-bit is here!

On day one of the AE CS5 release Red Giant posted the 64-bit Trapcode versions - how's that for speedy upgrades? We wanted to wow our dear customers and our great partner Adobe and put a lot of energy into getting the 64-bit native versions available from day one. Kudos to the RG engineering team!

Owners of Trapcode Particular v2 - FREE upgrade to 64 bit version (until June 30, 2010)

Recent purchases (on or after April 12th) - FREE upgrades.

Individual product upgrades are $29 each, and the full Trapcode Suite can be upgraded for $99.

Goodbye memory errors! Hello 30-second RAM previews! (or at least three) :-) And as a bonus some render-speed improvements.

NOTE: This 64-bit stuff has nothing do to with bit depth of rendering, only the address space of the CPU which used to be 3-4 GB with 32-bit addressing. Now we can (in theory) address up to 2^64 bytes = 17,179,869,184 GB. 



Status, 64bit, some history and Vegas

This new site is shaping up fine. Love the comments I'm getting, keep em coming! Feedback was the #1 reason for the site platform switch.

Trapcode 64 bit plugs are coming! Read more on this.

I've posted some Trapcode history regarding the birth of Form. I posted in the ShareLog since it contains AEP's. And I've posted tons of other stuff to the ShareLog. (btw - if you are a new visitor to this site you should know that it has two blogs - Blog and ShareLog. The Blog is for news and status reports from Trapcode (like this) and gallery items, the ShareLog is for AEP's and training/tutorials.)

I'm off to Las Vegas on Sunday for NAB. I won't be demoing but you should be able to find me at these events: Monday - Red Giant / fxphd event and Adobe party later. On Tuesday evening I plan to attend the Pinball thing (I hope they have Twilight Zone). Daytime I'll be at the show (around Plug-in Pavillion and Red Giant's booth SL4127) or by the pool :-) See you there!
