Article Focus:
Steve Kilisky, Giles Baker, Hart Shafer and Mark Randall sat down with Tim Wilson and Ron Lindeboom to talk about the launch of CS3. They discuss what it means to them, and what it will mean to you. This is a brief overview of what you'll find in each of the 4 parts.



Just before the public launch of Adobe Creative Suite 3, Ron and I got to sit down for extended conversations with Steve Kilisky, Giles Baker, Hart Shafer and Mark Randall. They are, respectively, the product managers of After Effects, Premiere Pro, and Adobe Audio Products; Mark is the Chief Strategist for Adobe Dynamic Media.

Over the course of two hours, they each offered their unique perspective on CS3. These were wide-ranging conversations covering far more than the features in each application. Each of them touches on integration, long the most distinctive feature of Adobe's software suites, now taken even further with this release.

But of course each of them spoke about their products too.

It might look like these lists summarize the converations. They don't. Think of them each as a table of contents. You'll need to listen to the podcasts for the really good stuff.

Let's put it this way. You know you're going to buy Adobe CS3. This is a guided tour to a significant part of what you're going to get when you do.

An extended discussion of Photoshop Extended, and new integration between Photoshop and AE. "Could talk only about Photoshop the whole time."

How customer input also changes the direction of product growth

Professional-strength audio for non-audio professionals
Soundbooth public beta: 100,000 downloads and counting

The future of Adobe Dynamic Media
Shooting HD for the web



This is just the slightest overview of what you'll find in the 4 interviews at The Creative COW News podcast. All of these guys are articulate and energetic. They'll get you even more excited than we know you already are.

We have to send special thanks the Dynamic Media product and Strategy folks who were willing to give us so much of our time in the hectic days before the big announcement. It's a testament to their generosity of spirit. And their ability to go for days without sleep.

See you at The Creative COW News podcast!

Your pal,

Tim

Audio editing is full of peril if you don't take care. But Adobe has now given us the wonderful Snapshot function which can save copies of our files in various different states so that if we make a real mess of things we can always get back to a version before the errors - even if we have saved the file and exited Soundbooth! This tutorial shows how to use the snapshot and history panel to save losing something really important!
