The creators of Photoshop, After Effects, and Flash speak
Did you know that Photoshop might have been marketed as a file-format conversion utility, or that Flash started life as a drawing tool for tablet computers of the early 90’s?
By coincidence, the following interviews with the creators of Photoshop, After Effects, and Flash have popped up in the last week:
- First, Robert Scoble traveled to Industrial Light and Magic to chat with visual effects supervisor John Knoll–who, with his brother Thomas, created Photoshop:
- At a meeting of SFMOGRAPH, two of the original CoSA After Effects team members, David Simons and Dan Wilk, sat down with current AE engineering manager Chris Prosser to chat about the past, present, and future:
- In How Flash Brought The Internet To Life, NPR interviewed Flash creator Jonathan Gay about that technology’s incredible metamorphoses.
