New icons for all of those different Adobe Creative Cloud Apps

after effects editing editing fcpx final cut pro x media composer premiere premiere pro software useful tools

Well for After Effects and Premiere Pro really but you can make more

By Scott Simmons | July 11, 2014

If you updated your Adobe Creative Cloud apps a few weeks ago then you might have noticed it didn’t really update the apps at all. Rather you got brand new 2014 versions of the CC apps like Premiere Pro in your applications folder. You may have noticed those app icons look the same. Never fear the Internet is here to help with that first world problem.

after effects editing editing fcpx final cut pro x media composer premiere premiere pro software useful tools

Canon's new DPP software, the first supporting video, is not for all Canon users, only for those using Full Frame.

By Jose Antunes | July 10, 2014

It may be a technical requirement, or it may be a marketing decision. For the first time the FREE Canon Digital Photo Professional is not available for all DSLR users (and other Canon users) but only for those that have a full frame DSLR and can show it. This means that the first Canon DPP with video playback support is not for all owners of Canon cameras.
