Yesterday we announced the launch of the next generation of our creative tools coming this June. Adobe SpeedGrade CC, along with all of the other new desktop applications will be available exclusively in Adobe Creative Cloud.
SpeedGrade CC brings some really cool new features, including a redesigned user interface, which puts all the tools you need right at your fingertips; Shot Matcher, for matching different clips automatically; Mercury Transmit, for external monitoring via AJA and Matrox cards; a Luma Waveform display for accurate color balancing, a Snapshot Browser for saving and loading reference images (including images imported from Photoshop CC), film stock emulations, Look Manager, and more. For an overview of the new features, check out our SpeedGrade CC preview post from last month, or the Reveal videos we did for NAB.

It’s been a little less than a year since SpeedGrade joined the family of Adobe pro video applications with the launch of CS6 in May 2012. We are so gratified with the positive response and thrilled that so many of you have been making the move into the exciting world of color grading.
So what’s next? While we can’t yet tell you when the next launch will be, we do want to share some of the exciting things coming in the next version of Adobe SpeedGrade.

Director Richard Jobson gave a lively presentation on the project, and described in detail how the Adobe tools enable him to deliver high production value on modest budgets. He does it with vigorous storytelling, well-crafted scenes, and immersive soundtracks. Those who know their music history will recognize the name: Richard was lead singer for The Skids, a popular punk rock band in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Continue reading…
Adobe is making it simpler to keep your software up-to-date. And a lot cheaper.
Adobe CS6 has been so well received by reviewers and production professionals around the world, and you now have several options for buying it.

I encourage you to take a good look at Adobe’s Creative Cloud Membership.
