At first, this year’s South by Southwest seemed like a bust, it is one of the biggest design, new media, social media, technology, and film and media conferences in the world. Gray skies, relentless rain, a labyrinthine of taxis and registration lines and traffic jams put a damper on the start of the show. But a few days in, after the sun came out in a blaze of glory, people pulled off their rain suits and started to mingle. After that, the conference was in full swing — dozens of panels, hundreds of sessions, some awesome barbecue and many cameos and keynotes by some of interactive’ s famous, the whirlwind week ended just as quickly as it began.

Adobe India arranged a movie show for its employees on August 8 & 9. What was special about this movie, “Krishna aur Kans”, is that it was an animated feature film powered by Adobe technologies including Adobe Flash Professional, Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects and Photoshop. While most of the global releases (in Hindi, English, Tamil and Telugu) were in stereoscopic format, the film will also be released in 2D. The film is presented by Reliance Animation.
Adobe Flash technology was at the core of the movie’s production pipeline and utilized two amazing features: ‘Shape Tweens’ and ‘Motion Tweens’, enabling the creative team to create magical effects in the movie.
The animation in the film has been done primarily using Adobe Flash software, crafting a magnum opus canvas to help viewers relive the time of Krishna. The team also used Adobe Premiere Pro as one of the key software in their workflow for offline editing.
Krishna aur Kans a film presented by Reliance Animation, is undisputedly a visual delight (especially in 3D) with psychedelic and vibrant colours.
