Cool things I saw at Adobe yesterday


Here are some cool things to check out for folks interested in the worlds of animation and electronic publishing:
  • Adobe Edge
    No, this animation was NOT done in Flash. This is Adobe Edge. Edge works on a timeline interface you may recognize from Flash Pro, After Effects and Premiere. It uses HTML5 + CSS + Javascript to produce animations without Flash, animations that will run on iOS devices like iPads and all other devices that use modern browsers. Adobe Edge is currently in development and can be downloaded for free.
  • Liquid Layout
    Scroll down to the post Dynamic Liquid Layout in InDesign (MAX Sneak Peek) to see one of the most exciting developments for electronic magazines I have ever seen! Watch Kiyomasa Toma, giving you a sneek peak on Liquid Layouts in InDesign. Sorry, the permalink to the specific post did not show the same video.
  • iBooks Author
    We also saw a presentation of Apple's iBooks Author. The presenter said, this will give you an idea of some of the functions we can expect to see in CS6.
This is turning out to be one of the most exciting and game changing periods in electronic publishing since electronic publishing rendered the world of hot wax and rubber cement obsolete. Maybe, even more so!
