I’ve been using Adobe products for many years and I always get around to upgrading sooner or later when a new version comes out. But when CS5 came out, I got it right away. New features like 64bit processing and CUDA graphic support turned my okay laptop into an editing machine.
In this video, HDSLR Coalition demonstrates editing footage in Premiere CS5 right off of a memory card. This of course isn’t the ideal way of editing, but it just goes to show how fast and smooth CS5 handles HDSLR footage.
