Adobe Integrates Creative Suite Apps for Video

Slew of new features--and cross-platform functionality--added for post and rich media pros

It was an exciting afternoon on March 27 when Adobe announced updates to virtually its entire product line-tying together seven applications into a new version of its Creative Suite software for streamlined, video-intensive workflow. Adobe's Creative Suite 3 Production Premium bundle will be cross-platform when it debuts in the third quarter of 2007 (that is, between July 1 and Sept. 30).

Targeting both postproduction and rich media (aka multimedia) professionals, the bundle includes After Effects CS3 Professional, Premiere Pro CS3, Encore CS3, Photoshop CS3 Extended, Illustrator CS3, Flash CS3 Professional, and Soundbooth CS3. For Windows users, the bundle also includes OnLocation CS3, formerly Serious Magic DV Rack, and Ultra CS3 software for chroma keying, also a former Serious Magic app. (Mac users can run these two apps under Boot Camp.)
