CS Next Sneak Peeks
NAB Reveal previews from Adobe and others [updated]
By Rich Young | April 03, 2013
Adobe has started to reveal the features of the next versions of their video post production software, which will be demoed at NAB 2013.
There's no shipping date or official name, or information about the rest of the Creative Suite, though ProDesignTools says "Adobe CS7? Next Release of Creative Suite to Be Revealed May 6th", the date the Adobe Max conference opens.
Adobe is offering an NAB Show special of 40% off Creative Cloud ($30/month) from April 4-19, 2013, only through the Adobe.com store.
The announcement has been well-received, and there's plenty to still chew on. After the release, we can expect more critical eyes on feature gaps, and more details on the entire suite (like getting in & out of Speedgrade).
