Avatar & Adobe

I hope by now you’ve all had a chance to go see Avatar in 3D in the theater. It certainly ranks among the most visually striking films I’ve ever seen.

It’s probably not a surprise to you that Adobe products were used extensively in the making of Avatar. In fact, they were used from the pitch to post-production. The Avatar team turned to the the usual suspects for content creation — After Effects, Photoshop, and Premiere Pro and Illustrator. But they also tapped a number of other Adobe technologies to help with workflows beyond the pixels. Adobe InDesign was employed to produce documents & legible forms and Acrobat Connect Pro web conferencing allowed Lightstorm Entertainment to coordinate efforts between locations.
