The Adobe sneak looks intriguing. Makes me excited for CS6.

From the looks of Twitter last night there were a couple of surprises at the Friday evening’s San Francisco Supermeet. First bit of news I saw was that Final Cut Pro User Group (FCPUG) has decided to drop the Final Cut Pro designation from their name to become the Creative Pro User Group. Second was a sneak peek from Adobe about a new application called Prelude.

A new name for the FCPUGs

Now the gut reaction to the Creative Pro User Group name would be that this is a result of Final Cut Pro X and its rather chilly reception from the creative pro community. That’s probably overstating it a bit as it’s more of a focus on the direction the group has taken over the years by focusing on tools other than just Final Cut Pro. We’ve seen everyone on a SuperMeet stage from Avid to Adobe to Autodesk for the last few years. In fact there’s been more As on-stage other than Apple for quite a while. The LAFCPUG website hasn’t updated to reflect the name change as of this writing but the BOSCPUG has.

Adobe Prelude

The other big surprise was a new application that was teased by Adobe called Prelude. I don’t know much about it other than what I saw via Twitter but it looks to be logging, annotating, transcoding and exporting tool. read more...
