[UPDATE (Oct. 2022) – Check out the incredible new Sneaks from MAX 2022!]
SAN JOSE, Calif.—October 13, 2015—At the record-breaking MAX conference last week, Adobe revealed 11 sneak peeks of technologies they are working on but haven’t released yet. Some of these new features are absolutely mind-blowing and defy belief, yet the company did not webcast the sneak peeks. But good news, you will find complete videos of each of them captured below!
Naturally, the Adobe says there aren’t any guarantees for what will appear in a production release, or when: “See the coolest demos of what we’re cooking up in the Adobe development labs, and be the first to get a peek at technologies that may (or may not) make it into future products and services.” But nevertheless, major new product features very often appear in these previews before they make it into the real tools (cases in point: Content-Aware Fill, Perspective Warp, Image Deblurring, and Defog/Dehaze).
The curtain raised on this year’s MAX Sneaks with host Nick Offerman, award-winning actor, writer and woodworker, and Kim Chambers, community manager with Adobe’s Experience Design team, sharing almost a dozen projects crossing the creative spectrum of photography, design, 3D, audio/video, fonts, animation, and more.
