Will BFD3 Work as a 32-bit RTAS Plug-in in Pro Tools 10.0 (32-bit) on a Mac?

Hi, everyone (SORRY if I might have posted this on a "discussion" thread type earlier)

I've been searching the web and here in Gearzlutz but cannot find a direct answer, so I hope you can help me out. I'm not a techie and am slow in getting clues to possible answers in the FXpansion forum and other fora. My DAW is Pro Tools 10.0.0 (running 32-bit) on an iMac OS 10.7.3 (Lion). The given is that I cannot run 64-bit on my system as of yet; only 32-bit.

So, here is my concern: I have BFD2 and am thinking of upgrading to BFD3. FXpansion states this: "It comes with VST2.4, AU, RTAS and AAX64 plugin versions and also as a standalone application. The VST2.4, AU and standalone app work in both 32-bit and 64-bit environments." Does this mean that the RTAS plugin version would not work, therefore, in a 32-bit environment or would it? That only VST2.3, AU, and standalone app would work in 32-bit (and 64-bit) but not RTAS plugin version? I can only run RTAS on my 32-bit Pro Tools, as far as I know.

Hope someone can enlighten me. Please do bear with my non-techie-filled queries.

Thanks a lot for your reply, Rail. I guess I was overreading/over-analyzing FXPansion's statement when the short of it all is that BFD 3 will, in fact, work with my current set-up (PT 10 32-bit, RTAS, and all). Thanks for snapping me out of it
