QuickTime & AE CS5: The 64 bit Question

After Effects CS5 will to be a 64 bit application only. At the moment QuickTime is only a 32 bit application and users of other 64 bit applications like (3D max 64 bit, Nuke 64 bit, etc.) do not have the ability to import or export any QuickTime files.  So seeing how QuickTime is one of most popular formats that has been supported by After Effects since the beginning, what will happen with AE CS5?

I received direct word from the Adobe After Effects product manager himself: Michael Coleman

He said this:

“QuickTime is very important and we will continue to have QuickTime support in the next After Effects. It involved extra effort on our part to work around the QuickTime issues, but it’s looking good now.”

It seems you can count on QuickTime support in After Effects CS5. And in a few years, a robot in every home.
