Today was the first day of AdobeMAX, and if you saw the live stream from the event or followed our live updates, you may know most of these things.

Here are the stuff you really need to know about Adobe CC in general. 

  • Creative Cloud is rebranded Adobe CC. After Effects will be called After Effects CC. 
  • Perpetual licensing (the system you're used to with buying a single license or a bundle and then upgrading it) is a thing of the past. Everything will be cloud based from now on. 
  • CS6 will still be available.
  • Adobe CC is going to include all of the Adobe software and a bunch of new tools too.
