Adobe Creative CloudDespite the controversy surrounding Adobe’s switch to a subscription-based model, its Creative Cloud line of products has seen several useful updates for users. For instance, Adobe has added native RED DRAGON & CinemaDNG RAW support via GPU acceleration, plus improved round-tripping with its color correction software SpeedGrade. This year at NAB, Adobe pushed forward with the addition of some newly native abilities, in addition to the dynamic linking its suite is already known for (i.e., no switch from PP to AE needed for certain effects, and vice-versa). Check below for our NAB 2014 interview with Adobe and a video recap of the newest iteration of CC features. More »
