BEST PRACTICES SERIES

At Adobe MAX, the Creativity Conference, Adobe unveiled the next generation of Creative Cloud, including four brand new applications, Adobe XD CC for experience design, Adobe Dimension CC for 2D to 3D compositing, Character Animator CC for 2D animation, and an all-new cloud-based photography service, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC. In addition, Adobe announced feature updates to its flagship applications including Photoshop CC, InDesign CC, Illustrator CC, and Premiere Pro CC, and ongoing expansion of its Adobe Stock service.

All of these updates include capabilities powered by Adobe Sensei, Adobe’s artificial intelligence and machine learning platform, and are the latest in a series of innovations from Adobe that serve modern creative professionals and enthusiasts wherever and however they work.

Next Generation Creative Applications

  • Adobe XD CC: Developed in open partnership with the design community through a public beta, Adobe XD is the all-in-one cross-platform solution for designing and prototyping mobile apps and websites.
  • Adobe Dimension CC: Previously Project Felix, Adobe says Dimension gives graphic designers the power and flexibility of 3D with the ease and simplicity of working with 2D.
  • Adobe Character Animator CC : This 2D animation tool helps bring still image artwork from Photoshop or Illustrator to life. New features include pose-to-pose blending, new physics behaviors, and visual puppet controls. Adobe Sensei also helps improve lip-sync capability by accurately matching mouth shapes with spoken sounds.

All-New Lightroom CC Photography Service

Lightroom CC is Adobe’s all-new cloud-centric photo service for editing, organizing, storing and sharing photos – from anywhere.

Adobe also announced performance and editing updates to Photoshop Lightroom Classic CC, previously known as Photoshop Lightroom CC, which continues to focus on a more traditional desktop-first workflow.
