ProRes RAW was lauded as a high-end raw video codec for high-end video shooters and editors. But it had one fatal flaw; You could only edit it with a Mac. Well, now that appears to be changing as Apple has released a beta of Apple ProRes RAW for Windows which adds ProRes RAW support to some of the applications in the Adobe CC suite including Premiere Pro, After Effects, Rush and Media Encoder.
Two days ago, Adobe announced free CC apps for students and teachers. But it appears that the rest of us can now get two months of Adobe Creative Cloud for free. The latest offer on the company’s website enables you to get a free subscription for two months, and it’s pretty simple to get it if you’d like to try.
The coronavirus outbreak has had schools all over the world closed down, moving classes to online platforms whenever possible. Adobe has decided to offer free at-home access to its Creative Cloud programs to all students and educators who are now forced to teach and learn from home.
Adobe’s Creative Cloud is a wonderful tool for many photographers and filmmakers out there who want to get some remote backup of their work and easily transfer it between their devices. It’s also big on the collaboration features, with Adobe reporting over a million such users taking advantage of it.
Now, Adobe is making it even easier to collaborate and share files from your Creative Cloud storage with collaborators and clients. They’ve been working together with Google Cloud to integrate Adobe CC into the G Suite (including Gmail) to let you quickly send and receive assets between Creative Cloud accounts over email.
Earlier this month, Adobe deactivated all Venezuelan Creative Cloud accounts due to the US sanctions. But here’s some good news for all creatives in Venezuela: your Adobe subscription is active again. After discussions with the US government, Adobe has been granted a license to provide all of its Digital Media products and services in Venezuela despite the sanctions.
Adobe was recently hit with a massive data breach, exposing nearly 7.5 million Creative Clouds accounts to the public. Reportedly, a database containing sensitive user info was easily accessible to anyone through a web browser.
Earlier in the week, Apple released macOS Catalina. But if you’re using Photoshop or Lightroom CC on your Mac, you may want to put the upgrade on hold. Adobe users have reported numerous problems with Photoshop and Lightroom after upgrading the system. And Adobe itself has confirmed that these two programs still aren’t compatible with the latest macOS.
The U.S. Government has blocked almost all transactions and services between U.S. companies, entities, and individuals in Venezuela. As a result, all Adobe Creative Clouds accounts in this country have been deactivated. What’s more – it seems that the affected users won’t get a refund, either.
