WWK NEWS - 09-10-12
There were two big news items that passed though our email inbox this past week that we wanted to share with everyone.
Adobe Teases us with Adobe Anywhere
Adobe Anywhere is guaranteed to be a major game changer for video produciton companies of every size. The service is claiming to allow location independent collaborative editing in Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Prelude. There are a ton of enticing features that they cover on the Adobe microsite. Check it out, you'll be impressed. In the meantime, here is an overview video from AdobeTV.
Adobe is being coy about the release date and pricing for now. Based on their previous behavior patterns we're willing to bet this will be a CS 6.5 product. We are also betting that it will be included in CreativeCloud memberships.
