Adobe CS 5.5 inches closer to build once, output many

11 Apr

Let’s generate this out of the way foremost: if you’re looking for updates to Photoshop, irritate along, there’s nothing to take heed here. Ditto for Illustrator and Fireworks. While in that place’s a lot going on in Adobe’s knock to Creative Suite 5.5, those products exercise volition retain the CS5 moniker. As ~ the sake of the rest of the crew, the updates to the applications be prostrated into 4 categories: single source, multiple mark workflow enhancements; improved interapplication integration; performance boosts and interface tweaks; and broader prop for a variety of formats. I’m not going to wish all the various new features and tools–that’s a sumptuous way to lose the forest on account of the trees–and instead hit some of the highlights. If you’re looking instead of detailed information on any particular outcome, you can find it on Adobe’s seat.

So what’s recent? InDesign makes the ePub format distort in ways it was never intended to; that is, tolerably than output basic text documents, you have power to now do fancy-schmancy multimedia cloth like embed video and audio, induce article flow and dynamically resize images. If you’re a huge publisher and use the Digital Publishing Suite, you can create .folio files with interactive figure overlays that support audio, video, slideshows and hyperlinks. To me, granting, the most noteworthy addition is mapping styles to HTML, ePub, and PDF tags, in the manner that well as the ability to count up CSS class names and custom tags.

Flash Pro and Catalyst be seized of improved roundtripping with each other. Catalyst has more interface tweaks, including a new habitual Library panel. (I’m not a Flash user, however I have to say–Adobe’s proper adding an Align panel now?) You have power to also define projects as resizable through parametric scaling. Flash Pro has been updated to maintain the latest versions of the Player and AIR, by source-level debugging on AIR devices. There’s enhanced bed. handling (including copy/paste and copy), parametric object scaling relative to halting-place size, and symbol rasterizing to improve playback playing.

On the video side, Premiere Pro, After Effects and Audition tot~y seem to play better with harvested land other, and incorporate interface tweaks and feat boosts. Adobe boosted the selection of GPUs supported by Premiere Pro‘s Mercury Playback Engine, in the same proportion that well as upped the variety of operations what one. take advantage of it. There strike one as being to be improvements in handling RED workflows and Canon XF video, considered in the state of well as a new Merge Clips lineament for syncing that pesky timecode-disengage audio that comes from dSLR shooting. Media Encoder has unused presets for rendering to a multifariousness of screen sizes. After Effects incorporates the Warp Stabilizer object of worship-stabilization feature about which Adobe released video previews not long ago. There’s also a set of stillness-of-field tools to make your video manner like it was shot with a dSLR, together with its artistic anti-particle, 3D stereoscopic editing. Audition since runs natively on the Mac OS, and supports vernacular 5.1 surround editing.

Finally, at the same time that you’d expect, Dreamweaver beefs up its HTML5 and CSS3 implementations by an enhanced CSS panel and CSS3 code hinting, and updated Live View to back up CSS3 attributes. For multiplatform coders, Adobe improved the Multiscreen Preview body of jurors. Now you can see how your handsome designs will render on all sorts of small device screens simultaneously!
