I’ve upgraded my copy of Flash Professional 8 this morning. I now have Flash CS3 Professional running on my iMac.
It runs so much faster than the previous version. Flash Professional 8 was made when Macs were still running on Power PC processors. It runs on Rosetta on an Intel Mac, so it was pretty slow. The current version now runs natively on Intel Macs, so they are more optimized to the new processor.
I am test driving it right now by doing some posing work on the iMac instead of on my regular PC. As I have mentioned in earlier posts, I intend to move my workstations to an all-Apple set up. Test driving it now will give me a clear idea if that plan would be a good one.
