Cs 4

Recommended Posts

Guest TitanDesign

Hey guys,

 

I am now using CS4 and i like it. I was wondering what you guys think about the new version.

 

For me a nice feature is the tool that can rotate the canvas! But i Experience a problem.. When i draw my computer can't follow.. In painter for example i draw and see my lines and it goes all smoothhhhh! .. But in CS4 it's not like that.. It's not going smooth enough for nice drawing like in Painter..

 

Do you guys experience the same ?

 

Thanx

Hi!

 

It's a known problem that CS4 is slower than CS3. Adobe has received complaints about that. A lot of improvements has been made from CS3 especially for wacom users, just need some optimization.

 

Best regards,

lebic

I've spent more than a month working with Adobe Creative Suite 4 Master Collection. I'm impressed. It pushes the envelope again with new tools and enhancements that will save a lot of time.

Ok Thanks for the feedback.

 

Still wondering..

 

If u compare Painter/Sketchbook Versus Adobe CS4 , For sketching purposes.. What is the benefit of CS4 ?

Wow, seems I missed something big! Lucky I never felt the need to upgrade.

 

The biggest new feature in CS4 is the offloading of drawing intense stuff onto the graphics card, instead of running everything in the main processor. They showed how fast it was on large pictures in video previews and everything!

 

Does this not work at all on small pictures, then? Or with fast brush strokes?

 

Could you please let me know your sources for this "known" problem?

 

I would like to read more about this.

yea

 

i noticed that problem too :)

 

when making fast movements with the mouse or Tablet. if i tried to sketch a Large Curve, its as if the computer slows down. and it creats more of an L shape !! how do you fix that.

 

i dont think my computer is that slow its a fairly desent rig to be honest

 

Intel Core2 Duo - E8400 3.0Ghz

Nvidia 8800GTS 512mb

CorshairXMS2 4 x 1gb ram

Asus Stiker exteme Mobo

1TB samsung F1 Spinpoint Harddrive

 

what you think the problem is ??

seems to be more Software bassed problem than hardware.

The GPU would be my hunch.

 

Not yet moved up to CS4, panned for after April, still using PS7

A dual core would solve your problems. and it has 4 gb of ram right, or is that 1gb?

Do you not mean quad core?

 

And hasn't Adobe shifted more toward GPU?

Intel Core 2 Duo is a dual core !! - Hense its name :clapping:

and yes i mean 4gb of ram - "CorshairXMS2, 4 x 1Gb sticks = 4GB

umm... ya... :) being dumb...

 

but 4 gb is way more than you need, the only thing is your cpu i think. could be your gpu too as buff said, but a 8800 is pretty good, and 512 mb...

 

a quad core is good, but they are VERY expensive, you could try a faster core 2 duo... if you go somewhere like frys where they have a good return policy you can try diffrent ones i guess...

4GB is more than you can use on a single app on a 32bit OS, but I dont think ther is such a thing as too much RAM, is there?

 

8800 may well be pretty good.... for crusing up the highstreet in a aston DB9 on GT4, but for DCC, you need a Quadro FX (or ATI equiv, but I get allong better with Nvidia), even a 256MB FX card will out perform the 8800 (usually)

 

I dont think quad core is expensive when you consider the advantages. at least this machine Im typing on now wasnt much. about £1K for a 2.66 and 6gb RAM

 

If your running Vista, you need 1gb just to run the OS

ok well i know a brave bit about computers, not saying im an expert and there may be some holes in my information but i know a hell of alot more that the average cup of Joe.

 

ok so this is what i think.

 

i Dont think its my CPU, as my CPU scores very high up compared to latest CPU's that are out there.

this takes into account CPUS above mine including the new Intel I7's

as for Quads in my opinion there over rated and extremely over Heated.

at the time of buying my Core2 Duo E8400, it was the best on the market bare none and was blowing all other Quads out of the water. i think the only compeition to it now would be the Intel I7 range and cause there so expensive im not ready to upgrade to one.

 

again as for GPU, the 8800GTS OC 512mb with its G92 core blew all other 8800's including the Ultra and even some of the 9000 range from nvidia compared to Statistics and numbers, this was becuase it was the first (i think) to use the G92 core where as the others used an older .. if i remember G94 core the card is still very reliable and a good card at that. but what it lacks is that it needs another 512mb onboard ram to bring it up to 1GB onboard. like i siad most of nvidia's latest GPU range are still quite expensive and personaly im waiting to see what they bring out to benifit the Intel I7 range. ( Nvidia 10,000 range perhaps, and id reckon they will have 2gb onboard )

 

as for my 4gb ram, i use the following operating systems :

 

Windows XP Pro 32bit - Old main (transphering files to the 64bit edition)

Windows XP Pro 64bit - main

Windows Seven 64bit - Testing

 

 

ok so thats what i think, it may be right it may be wrong :sorry:

but the fact is wer kinda geting off topic here.

wasnt this topic about the problem of CS4. :oops:

true, u can't have too much ram, but after a certain point it's not necessary. like the mac pro say expandable to 16 gb or something, but you're never going to need 16 gb of ram.

 

true, but a 8800 is still decent. do you know how the 9 series is? if they are worth a upgrade from a 8 or 7?

 

what brand and where did u get your computer? 1k for all that is a good deal.
