Adobe to Preview Creative Suite 6 at NAB

| News

AdobeAdobe will offer the public its first deep look into the upcoming Creative Suite 6 package during the National Association of Broadcasters convention in Las Vegas. The CS6 suite isn’t shipping yet, although a public beta of Photoshop CS6 is available now.

Since NAB is a video-heavy event, Adobe will focus on the Production Premium Creative Suite apps geared towards video and audio editing such as Premiere Pro, After Effects, Encore, Audition, Story, and Media Encoder. Adobe will also show off its new SpeedGrade CS6 and Prelude CS6 apps.

SpeedGrade CS6 manages professional level color grading, and Prelude CS6 handles what Adobe said is the “process of ingest, logging and transcoding, essential tasks in a modern file-based workflow.”

Premiere Pro CS6, Adobe’s professional video editor, includes an updated user interface, new multi-cam editing and image stabilization features, an improved playback engine, a new audio mixer, and more. Adobe says After Effects CS6 marks the single largest upgrade for the visual effects application in a decade.

The Production Premium version of Creative Suite 6 includes Premiere Pro, After Effects, Encore, Audition, Story, Media Encoder, SpeedGrade CS6, Prelude CS6, and Photoshop. The official release date for CS6 hasn’t been announced yet.

The NAB conference and trade show runs from April 14 through April 20 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Adobe will be previewing CS6 at booth SL2624 April 16 through April 19.

Le sigh…

I probably need to upgrade from CS3 someday. I’m scared to death of what they’ll do to Flash Pro this time around. Better drawing tools in line with it’s new destiny as a gaming tool? Or just more glitchy, unfixed, mess with no clear vision of their market?

I went from CS2 to CS4 because 2 was having problems in whatever OSX cat I installed. Now under Lion I am having some crashes in PhotoShop when I move layers around. If Adobe cleans out the old code so that the apps work with Snow Leopard I may upgrade to CS6. Otherwise I will look for alternatives to PhotoShop and Illustrator.

Not sure if either of you (or anyone else here that uses Creative Suite) is aware, but Adobe is going to offer a subscription service called Creative Cloud. It starts at $50/month, and subscribers can download, install, and use any and every creative Suite 6 app available. I’m still on CS 3, but am looking forward to the upgrade. At $600/year, subscribers will always have access to the latest releases of CS, at a price no upgrade (even to just the Production Suite) can match:

Yeah, I am aware of it. I am still comteplating a divorce.

But don’t forget, with the subscription route once you no longer want to keep paying, you have no version of the product to be content with and work with. At least if you buy it and next year to choose not to upgrade again at whatever price, you still have use of the version you bought.
