What Can We Expect For CS4/Win7?

When CS4 has its Real Time Engine, what exactly gets "fixed", and what doesn't?

The most troubling limitation is the inability of CS4 to recognize, collect, trim, and compile CFHD files under its Project Manager for archiving. Is this going to be solved with the Real Time Engine? Does anyone know for sure?

Is there any hope for decreasing the glacial rendering times of CS4... is this impacted by the Real Time Engine?

So far as I can see, there has been nothing but upside for the move to Win7. All the limitations I am experiencing seem to be present in XP Pro as well. Even though Cineform does not support Win7 yet, this hasn't been a factor with my areas of concern.

It's tempting to ditch CS4 altogether, but we all know that even when we skip a version update out of frustration, things always keep rolling in the same direction... so it's a "deal with it now, or deal with it later" scenario.

Does anyone really believe CS5 will be any different?

"CS" stands for things other than "Creative Suite", that's for sure.

My fear is that CS5 will be released (or at least announced) by the time the RT engine and feature set of Prospect 4 is 100% completed. At that point, I really hope Cineform doesn't charge users to upgrade for CS5 compatibility.
