Adobe Creative Cloud 2015 is Here!

The Adobe Creative Cloud 2015 What's New website. Click to go!

The day we have all been waiting for has arrived!

 

Yesterday, Adobe started rolling out their updated version of Creative Cloud, Adobe CC 2015. This update brings with it many enhancements for the core Adobe applications. If you’re already using Creative Cloud, simply launch the Creative Cloud application (from the system tray on Windows or the notifications area on Mac) and you should be able to update any or all of the applications.

Some of my favorite updates include:

  • Artboards in Photoshop
  • Auto-save in Illustrator
  • Bootstrap and Emmet integration in Dreamweaver
  • Faster zooming and scrolling in InDesign

You can read more about the update by visiting the following resources on Adobe’s website:

If you’d rather watch a video, you can watch Lynda.com videos from the following playlist:

Over the next several months, IT Training staff will be busy updating our in person and online workshop materials to teach the Adobe CC 2015 applications. Check back in the fall semester to sign up for our course offerings!

Introducing Adobe Audition CS5.5

Adobe Audition is an audio editing program that has been around for a long time, but it was not part of Creative Suite 4 or 5. SoundBooth was included instead, which was designed for video editors to be able to quickly open a video file, edit the sound, and go back to Premiere or After Effects.

However, with CS5.5 Adobe is replacing it’s light-weight audio editor SoundBooth with this high-end program in Production Premium.

Audition is a professional quality audio editing and processing program, however, as you can see in this introductory video, Audition is still accessible to basic users, but has the features and capabilities that professionals require:

Introducing Adobe Audition CS5.5

Also, Audition CS5.5 is the first version of the program available on the Mac. And it still has all the connections to Premiere and After Effects that made SoundBooth such a useful program. Keep an eye on IT Training’s offerings and Lynda.com to get training on this program.

Alas poor Soundbooth, I knew him Horatio…

Hamlet holding his dear departed SoundBooth.Creative Suite 5.5 is coming, and with it we have lost one of my favorite little programs: Soundbooth. Soundbooth is an audio recording and editing software package, optimized for use with video, and Adobe is not including it in CS5.5, and seems to be ending development on the program.

But it’s not all bad news, Adobe has replaced it with their high-end audio editing program: Audition. This hasn’t been part of the Production Premium Suite in the past, and it now includes the video adjustment features that Soundbooth did so well.

Keep an eye on this blog to see when CS5.5 becomes available to the IU community along with articles on the programs, and check out these videos from AdobeTV to see some of the new features in CS5.5.
