I called Adobe earlier today about CS4 bundle upgrade pricing. The guy on the phone said that After Effects CS4 *would* run on a G5. I was very specific in mentioning that Adobe had announced that CS4 would drop PPC support. He then said that it was G4s or earlier that it would not run on. This kind of goes against Adobe’s “System Requirements” page and every other bit of news.
Now I’ve got to call Adobe back and find a different person to ask. This can’t be right, can it?
I’ve not called Adobe back, but I’ve decided that the guy must have been talking about Photoshop instead of After Effects. The Adobe website seems to indicate that Photoshop CS4 will not work on a G4 or earlier.
