: Adobe Story is Out of the Creative Suite
Adobe Story has been dropped from the standalone versions of Adobe Creative Suite 6. Here are some official details.
What change did you make?
We have decided to remove Adobe Story CS6 from the perpetual versions of Master Collection, Production Premium, Premiere Pro and After Effects.
Why did you pull story from Master Collection, Production Premium, Premiere Pro and After Effects?
We were bundling a static AIR version of Adobe Story with these products through the Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 cycle, while this gave users access to Adobe Story, we updated the core application four times throughout the year, leaving the perpetual users with technology that was not the latest version. Adobe Story was designed to be a collaborative cloud service from day one and with the big push toward services with the upcoming announcement of Creative Cloud, we've made the decision to move Adobe Story to a full services model.
What versions are still available?
Adobe Story is available now with Adobe Story Free, as an online scripting tool. Adobe Story Plus, a collaborative pre-production tool with integrated scheduling and scriptwriting capabilities is expected to be available as a stand-alone subscription, as well as a version with the upcoming Adobe Creative Cloud Subscription.
