CS4: getting closer
To get the basics out of the way, Adobe has announced that we’re announcing CS4 on September 23rd. It’s right there on the Adobe home page. If you click on the link, you can register to see a live web seminar of the announcement.
As for me, I’ll let one thing out of the bag right now that shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone: AVC HD support. Huzzah! As we demonstrated at a local NY event on May 29th, we had AVC HD playing natively in the timeline. This will be a boon to those who are embracing this new type of format.
Beyond this, I must say that I’m getting pretty excited about the apps. I’ve played with them or tracked their progress for many months now and the culminating crescendo will be the release of CS4 to the public. While Adobe field people may occasionally come off as secretive or uncommunicative, nothing is further from the truth! We are aching, literally aching to talk and show you all of the Adobe goodness we’ve got packed in, so stay tuned, hang in there a little while longer and before you know it, you’ll get an early holiday present on September 23rd.
