Links: Adobe Creative Cloud Links from around the Web

Here’s a smattering of the news on the interwebs surrounding yesterday’s announcement at AdobeMAX.

It seems like the concensus is that people are excited about the new features that will be in the new version of the software, specifically MAXON CINEMA 4D Lite/Cineware, which will be included with After Effects. People are not nearly as excited about going to a subscription-only business model. If you haven't heard, Adobe will no longer have perpetual licensing available for new versions, but will continue to sell CS6. You'll need to subscribe to the Adobe Creative Cloud (Adobe CC) to have the latest versions of the software.

You can subscribe for a single application. Right now, there's a promotional deal that makes the price for that $9.99/month. You can see the various plans here. Click the “Pick a Plan” button on the far right to see the promotional deals for existing customers.
