Adobe Creative Cloud New Stuff..
show user profile  ScotlandDave
Just watching through some of the keynote vids from the Adobe MAX thing regards some of the new features coming soon - everything will be called CC rather than CS.

Some nice ones i`ve seen so far:

Photoshop CC -
Camera Raw is now integrated as a filter ( ie don`t have to step out of image editing to use it )
New Camera Shake sharpen filter - analyses camera shake/movement direction and corrects image

Illustrator CC -
Create brushes from bitmap images ( without having to trace etc)

AfterEffects CC -
Comes with Cinema4D Lite which has integration enhancements with AE

These are just the ones i`ve seen so far.. Looking good!

They are all about the cloud integration / sharing / connectivity etc with Creative Cloud although i`m still a bit unsure what all of that means in practical terms..

It means that Adobe no longer sell software.

You can only lease it from now on. You can no longer get a disk, install it and still be using it two years from now.

Autodesk are looking at the same model.

It's the beginning of the end.

We're all doomed.

Having said that, I've subscribed and think it's great. If I was paying myself, I would be less keen though.

Hehe yeah point taken :) One part of me is always looking for the dark lining on the silver cloud.. Surely they`ll still sell offline copies though?

Apparently not.

It will be great for people who only need the tools now and then and have a good internet connection.

Autodesk are looking at the same model.

I wish, they're still selling yearly subscription not monthly. I honestly haven't really encountered an issue with my Adobe subscription. It sometimes makes me want to reauth and that doesn't require a fast connection just something to validate my auth token.

I really wish Autodesk would move to that model, i want a copy of softimage that i pay for on a monthly basis.

Autodesk only have the Fusion 360 right now in a cloud model and i've been beta testing it for a couple of weeks now. It's neat that I can have the same kind of "available from any where" license, but the thing is, that the Fusion 360 is a cad tool. It's not robust like Max or Softimage.

(\/) (°,,,°) (\/) Woop woop woop!

So is the new model just that you pay per month instead of a one off?

That's pretty good because if you need extra licences for one job, you don't have to fork out £1000's that you might not use again (now I'm thinking about 3D soft)

But only having the latest one available would be bad, but, unlikely I imagine. (AD)

They are enabling previous version install as of now ( so basically you can still install CS6 as well as CC and so on for newer versions but not older than CS6 afaik )..

Also you`re allowed to use the licence on two machines which is nice..

Personally i think the monthly model is restrictive i`d rather pay in one go ie per year to avoid having to make sure it`s covered every month, but haven`t actually looked into whether this is possible.

For me it's great (freelancing, working from home). I can just include a small £ for each specific job that involves extensive photoshop use. And larger projects already more than pay for my software needs.

I am absolutely against the cloud being the sole way to get/manage software. Pretty soon data transfer speeds are going to be so high that all you will have at your office/home is a computer screen with a LAN connection that pulls a screen view off of a server somewhere...

I’m afraid that we are slowly going to be moving out of the realm of local computing .. I personally would rather have more control, have my data, software and hardware all local.

I don’t trust it.... That's probably why they named it the "cloud" to make it seem all soft and fluffy but in reality it's evil and contriving.

That or I just am stalling and don't want to write my final media law paper... ugh.

show user profile  Dr. Jim be fair....teh Adobe Cloud thing is still local software......all the apps are still installed locally.
And in do not have to be online all the time when using them either.....just occasionally or some such way they have it sorted.

So while I could imaging at some point server side cloud apps might be prevelant......right now at least...its still software installed on your machine.

Is there really a monthly option, or is it like a phone contract where you have to sign up for a full year? I heard that you have to pay upfront for the entire year.

I would like to see both a "cloud" monthly version, and a physical disk I can own. Not just for Adobe's products, but also for Autodesk's stuff. If AD had a monthly deal where for $50 or so, I could get access to ALL of their software, I would consider it.
I might actually then be able to dabble in mudbox, maya, autocad, inventor, etc. Who knows, maybe I would get good with one of them and buy a standalone copy.

It`s a yearly contract as far as i`m aware yeah.. Although i think there may be `options` for paying for shorter usage ( slightly more expensive )..

Some of the new features look pretty nice, and the fact that it comes with C4D Lite is also cool. I imagine C4D Lite with something like Videocopilot`s Elements renderer would be a really powerful toolset for many mo/graphic designers..
