Adobe announced the release of CS 4 today. I had a chance to get a sneak preview a few months back and I can tell you it is worth the upgrade price. Just the inclusion of the Mocha Planar Tracker is worth the upgrade price alone. (Unless you already own it)
There are too many cool new features to list here. For a full look at the new feature set, check out the Adobe page.
I find this of great interest to Avid users, you can Interchange project file information with other applications in the production workflow. AAF import and export is available on both Mac OS and Windows. How well this ties to Avid’s AAF is yet to be seen.
Inevitably, many will be disappointed as their particular feature requests aren’t in there, but that shouldn’t take away from the overall package. For example, my graphics guys are unhappy about the memory limitations of 32 bit code.
We’ll be getting a closer look at the Editor’s Lounge this Friday, I’ll have more feedback then.
