Adobe Unveils the Next Generation Video Tools and Offers 40% Off for a Limited Time


While visiting the National Association of Broadcasters Conference in Vegas, Adobe had a huge booth.  At it, they showed the next generation of their video products (such as Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, and SpeedGrade).  While they didn't promise a release date, the likelihood was definitely stated as "soon." which should mean major updates to all their tools can't be far behind.
If you want to see a detailed overview of Adobe Premiere Pro — check out my class on Lynda.
Adobe offered a special deal that is only good for a few days.  Save 40% off a year of Creative Cloud (which drops it to $29 a month). This offer can be used by anyone (even if you don't own a qualifying upgrade product).  I strongly suspect this will be the best deal offered this year.
Remember, a few key facts about Creative Cloud.

  • You get every Adobe Creative software tool.  Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, Photoshop, Prelude, SpeedGrade, Encore, Story and more.
  • You get tools like Digital Publishing Studio, Acrobat, and Muse for creating apps, PDFs, and websites.
  • You always have the latest version installed on your drive.  These do not run in the cloud, the apps are local just like before.
  • You get  20GB of Cloud storage and other cloud benefits that keep rolling out.
  • You get a professional Behance account to build portfolios and search for jobs.
  • You get updates sooner with no need to wait.

So if you're sitting on the fence, consider the offer.  It expires April 19.
