NEW! Adobe Creative Cloud in the Digital Studios

adobe-creative-cloud-large

So, what’s the latest with the Digital Studios?

Well let’s see, last week we did upgrade our Adobe software to the Adobe Creative Cloud suite, so I guess that’s pretty cool!

Adobe’s collection of professional image, audio, and video applications would normally run you $50 a month, but now you have free access with your library card when you book time in the Digital Studios at Cook Park or Aspen Drive!

What’s included in the Adobe Creative Cloud?

Funny you should ask. Coincidentally, I put together this nifty list that I pulled from the Adobe website:

Photoshop – image editing and compositing

Lightroom – Digital photo processing and editing

Ilustrator – Vector graphics and illustration

InDesign – Page design and layout for print and digital publishing

Acrobat Pro DC – Create, edit and sign PDF documents and forms

Experience Design (Preview) – Design and prototype user experiences. Formerly Project Comet.

Premiere Pro – Video production and editing

After Effects – Cinematic visual effects and motion graphics

Animate – Flash Professional is now Adobe Animate CC. Interactive animations for multiple platforms.

Dreamweaver – Web and mobile design

Adobe Muse – Website design without coding

Fuse (Preview) – Create custom 3D characters for Photoshop projects

Adobe Audition – Audio recording, mixing, and restoration

Bridge – Centralize your creative assets

Flash Builder – IDE for coding Flash apps and mobile device packaging

InCopy – Collaborate with copywriters and editors

Prelude – Metadata ingest, logging, and rough cuts

Adobe Media Encoder – Quickly output video files for virtually any screen

Adobe Spark – Easily create and share impactful visual stories – in minutes

Scout – Profile flash games on web and devices

SpeedGrade – Film finishing and color grading

Story Plus – Collaborative screenwriting, reporting, and scheduling tool

 

And if you’re wondering how you could possibly learn to use all of these tools, don’t forget you can get a lot of help through your free library access to Lynda.com.

See you in the studio!
