Day One of Adobe Creative Cloud Review–Still Feeling Like Christmas Morning!

May 12, 2012 by

We’ve had a great 24 hours of creative development using the newly released Adobe Creative Cloud CS6 tools uploaded for public use and consumption on May 11, 2012.  At the end of Day One, it still feels like Christmas Morning.

Last week we began a major HTML 5 overhaul of our site and refocused our company’s mission on the niche industry of interactive books for the iPad.  We still do PR and we still do web design, startups and photography and video work.  But going forward, our primary focus is on “making things glow.”

And so today we’ve posted a new video bumper you will begin seeing in all Claxton Creative, LLC produced videos.  This 12-second video is the result of multiple hours of testing, designing, editing, experimenting, reformatting and at times, near frustration.  But alas.  We have something designed we are quite proud to show.

The tools used to make this piece included Photoshop Extended CS6, Illustrator CS6, Premier Pro CS6 and Media Encoder CS6 from Adobe.  The audio tracks were built using Garage Band and they were all put together using a 17″ 2.4 Ghz Intel  Core i7 with 8 GB 1333 MHz RAM.

Yesterday we upgraded the RAM from the standard 4 GB that the machine came with to 8 GB through a purchase from Crucial.

The only issue we have had yet was when we tried to do a lot of sound editing in Premier Pro yesterday and it kept crashing.  But it appears that we should really have been using Audition CS6 instead, so maybe that’s the rub. We’ll see.

But all in all, we could not be happier with the release of all of these incredible tools, and for us, because we already owned Photoshop CS4, are only costing us $29.99 per month for one year.  Hopefully, we’ll be selling interactive books for the iPad at the rate of a bazillion a day by next May and we won’t really worry about it going to $49.99 a month…
