Adobe Creative Cloud is just not updating software present in the Creative Suite. No. Adobe has a whole philosophy around communication and community.  Adobe’s concern is to meet the needs of an environment with a strong appetite for communication. The desire to show, share, watch, exchange around his creations and those of others, is particularly appropriate in the middle of the image.

Easily accessible

Now, no more serial number, no more “versioning” either. Photoshop CC, for example, will always remain CC Photoshop.  Just connect with your personal Creative Cloud ID to see instantly on the “wall” of your portal, the latest updates to download. It will no longer be necessary to wait for 12 to 18 months to access the new tools of the next versions.

Over the last five years, communication media and mobile devices have grown considerably, pushing designers to become more and more multi-tasking. Now you have to be able to process the content and its destination. The software will, therefore, be more and more “equipped” to promote the online publication and adapt to websites, tablets, smartphones, PC, Mac, and so on!

One set of parameters per ID. A license for 2 stations. If you want to connect to a third station, instead of refusing the authorization, you will be offered to automatically disconnect one of the 2 other accounts instead. Accounts and licenses can be used separately since one can use the license of someone else and be on his own account in parallel.

Adobe Premiere Pro CC

Adobe Premiere Pro CC has especially been optimized for your comfort.

  • Build content for all platforms with Apple ProRes codecs. Encoding would be faster, many new keyboard shortcuts, possibility to copy and paste attributes and choose BEFORE pasting the affects you want to apply.
  • Powerful color workflows were introduced and the motor Lumetri Deep Color for easy application of color looks.
  • Ability to work on Multicam projects with files with different codecs and dimensions.
  • Smaller videos are automatically enlarged.
  • All the latest versions Adobe SpeedGrade CC, Prelude CC, Adobe Story CC are attached.
  • Some of you will recognize tabs similar to those introduced in Lightroom.
  • You can align multiple play heads to fine-tune the settings.
  • As in aftereffects, we find layers systems.
  • The settings can be saved in LUT.
  • Another interesting feature is the ability to save a snapshot, retrieve this snapshot on Photoshop to work on it, and re-inject the result, saved in 32-bit targa, into SpeedGrade.
  • The software will analyze the image and identify the retouches performed, which it will apply to the entire sequence.
  • You can now greatly deepen your 3D work with the new partnership between aftereffects CC and the software Cinema 4D from Maxon.

 

Attention, Cinema 4D version is a “Light” version, the software is not entirely proposed. It is mainly a package oriented Design-Video Games since you can touch modeling, textures, lights, cameras and animation. Particle and reverse kinematic tools are reserved for the full version of the software. Adobe and Maxon have not yet agreed to any tariffs for a possible update of the “Light” version to a “Full” version. The two stars of Photoshop CC tools are reducing camera shake and nondestructive editing through the filter of Camera Raw.

  • The Refine Edge tool has been added to the tools “rotoscoping”. It allows redrawing on the parts which require a finer treatment and thus to improve the treatment of the more precise contours such as the hair, the hairs of animals, etc.
  • The Warp Stabilizer tool allows localized stabilization or stabilizes only part of the picture.
  • A real 3D environment has been set up. If you want to import a 3D object into your scene, you need to activate the “Set ground, plane & Origin” and select the 3D track points. When you select points in space, when your object is created, it will automatically be placed according to the space of your scene.
  • The “Export Cinema 4D” command automatically launches Cinema 4D. Here you can find the parameters of the 3D Track of your After Effects scene. Once the settings made and saved, no need to render, just a “Save” to import under AE. We are almost in the dynamic link.
  • A new sharpness filter analyzes the movement through adaptive sharpening algorithms to reduce camera shake, noise, and other unwanted halo effects.
  • Intelligent oversampling tools can increase the image size up to 300% without suffering too destructive pixelation.
  • The Adobe Camera Raw feature 8 offers new commands to recover and refine images using a brush instead of a circular shape. This function consists of retouch by brush strokes, not destructive, and always allows to go back.
  • The tool Upright automatically straightens the horizon and corrects perspective without distortion.
  • A radial filter adjusts more detail the gradient feather. Several Radial can be worked on the same image.

What’s with the Photoshop and Photoshop Extended?

adobe-creative-cloud-04

Photoshop and Photoshop Extended are pooled to facilitate access to 3D tools and improved image analysis. You can create a Cube object, duplicate the object, and delete it. Use the “Object” function to bind an object and its replica.  Thanks to the juxtaposed views of the design capsule and the UV inlay, the painting becomes really dynamic.

Save time stream: drag a layer to a tabbed document, create paths more easily with new edit keys, move a path with the space bar and understand the ICC profiles. You can now import color samples directly from HTML, CSS or SVG files.

 

  • Illustrator CC

adobe-creative-cloud-05

It has a new tool to retouch text “Type Touch” which allows the designer to select one character and manage the move, change sizes, the pivot point while keeping the appearance of the non-destructive vector. As for brushes and patterns, Art, Pattern, and Scatter brushes may contain raster images, to paint with a brush made from a photo It is always possible to return to this form to break it, to rework it.

  • Edge Animate CC

adobe-creative-cloud-06

Edge Animate Cc allows the creation of animated and interactive content as CSS, JavaScript, and HTML. The most significant novelty is its Motion Path and the ability to draw the trajectory of the animated object in the Viewer. We draw the line, we edit it, and we play with the curves. The option of self-orientation proposes to apply a rotation to the object according to its trajectory. The files are in the form of Templates, which allows loading the animations more quickly – the Runtime being hosted by the Cloud.
