We were lucky enough to have Adobe pop over to our office yesterday and show off some of the aspects of Creative Suite 4 to us.
Photoshop has a tonne of new features, including a timeline and real 3D, hardware rendering and intelligent pixel scaling.
Flash has a totally re-built animation framework which makes it incredibly easy to manipulate animations on the timeline and stretch/lengthen them to slow them down or speed them up.
There’s also massive changes to the drawing API which means that realistic physics engines mapped to video, bitmaps and 3D models is now totally achievable.
Soundbooth is also a great addition to the club.
Very brief summary, but I also enjoyed chatting with the guys aftwards at the pub. Adobe really deserves for CS 4 to do well; they’ve packed alot into it.
