Adobe promised that with the change to a subscription model we would see bigger, better, and more frequent updates to their software. If this page is any indication they are living up to their word. Tons of new features are coming to their entire video line of products. The biggest to me are the Matte Tracker inside of After Effects CC, which seems to work similarly to how Autodesk Flame’s does. New GPU support for more video cards and faster processing in After Effects. And full GPU support inside of Adobe Media Encoder which will allow for faster exports and a slew of new post processing options. Check out their page for all the details and some nice videos showing off what is coming out next month.
CLARIFICATION: I should clarify that I assume this is coming out in October. If you remember our DMALA coverage from a little while back Mr Forde, the After Effects guy from Adobe, said they were readying major updates to the software coming in Sept/Oct and then another at the beginning of 2014 and that each of these would have big advancements since they don’t have to worry about Sarbanes–Oxley anymore. Sarbanes–Oxley has something to do with releasing new software and your fiscal calendar about reporting profits and I don’t fully understand it but what I get the impression of is that they can’t just release major new functionality without restarting their sales calendar and that was a problem before being a monthly subscription service.
