Adobe Camera Raw 6.7 Release Candidate Available, Latest Nikon & Canon Models Supported

Nikon D800 Support in Camera Raw 6.7

Adobe Camera Raw 6.7 release candidate is available for download via Adobe Labs. Camera Raw 6.7 adds support for the following cameras:

You’ll also need Camera Raw 6.7 for full support between Lightroom 4 and Photoshop CS5. Several lens profiles have been added/updated as well.

Remember, this is a release candidate, which means it has been pretty well tested and Adobe thinks it is ready for full release; however, it’s recommended that you keep production work to prior versions until the official releases drop.  Expect those to come soon though.  Release candidates mean that the final versions are just around the corner.

Adobe Lightroom 4 Launches at $149, Upgrades Only $79

Adobe Lightroom 4

Adobe Lightroom 4 is officially out of the gate after a brief leak last week.  The price for the full version at launch is $149 (half off the $299 list).  Upgrades drop $20 less, down to $79.

If you’ve been following along with the beta release, then you have a pretty good idea what Lightroom 4 is like; however, we’ll hit the highlights below for those wondering what all the fuss is about. [Read more...]

Photoshop CS6 Sneak Peek

Here’s another Photoshop CS6 Sneak Peek.  This one shows off a selective focus tool that can be quickly applied.

Note the available options include field blur and tilt shift in addition to the iris blur demonstrated in the video.  It will be interesting to see how this works when you want to show some shallow depth of field behind a subject while the subject remains in place.  I would imagine that that you’ll be able to mask your subject out and then apply the blur to the background layer similar to how we already do in Alien Skin’s Bokeh 2.

Hopefully, the wait won’t be much longer…

 

‘Act of Valor’ Made with Premiere Pro, After Effects and Other Adobe Tools

Here’s a short video that takes you behind the scenes of ‘Act of Valor‘, which was shot on the 5D Mark II, and shows how Adobe products were used to help make the film.  I knew that Adobe products were used quite a bit on the film; however, I was still surprised to hear that most of the visual effects in the film were done in After Effects.

It looks like most/all of the Adobe products that Bandito Bros used can be found in Adobe Production Premium.
