I just received news that the Adobe CS 5.5 Production Premium suite is 53% off (link). It loos like the end of the CS5.5 life-cycle is near, despite the fact that previous rumors and the NAB show in April would make a May 2012 release more credible. Adobe hasn’t said much about After Effects or Premiere CS6 yet, but they have released a blog post about the top feature requests for CS6 in the field of interest online section. As Jeff Riegel put it: “I don’t think anyone can make any future buying decision on a blog post (and an upgrade that addressed all 16 of these requests would be beyond huge) but it seems likely that this is more than a subtle hint at what we might expect out of AE CS6.” Top 16 After Effects feature requests: • import of AAF files • keyboard shortcut editor [hopefully better than the one in Premiere Pro] • Vector Paint effect • grouping layers in the Timeline panel [Yes please!] • variable-width mask feather • saving projects backward so that they can be opened by a previous version of After Effects • scopes (waveform and vector) [should be there already] • better handling of image sequences • extrusion of vector graphics • GPU/CUDA acceleration [double Yes please! Mercury engine in AE] • scaling: better algorithms and ability to choose • nodal compositing [To really play with the big boys] • custom zoom values • import of 3D objects • After Effects for Linux • bones and inverse kinematics within Puppet effect Adobe has recently also shown off some new features for Photoshop CS6 including “Content Aware Move”: Video: Content Aware Move in Photoshop (2:28) Now the final question that remains to be asked is: Will CS6 be cheaper if you buy the discounted CS5.5 with a later upgrade to CS6?
