IMO this is getting out of hand Adobe hovering up all products that offer any sort of alternative to its own is not good any one rember Canoma Bought then gone forever.

if you like your software packages working together well, this could be a good move. Perhaps some features might make their way into the adobe products.

Well it depends on which way Adobe jumps it either keeps the products and gains in the lower end of the video editing / applications market OR takes what it wants out of the products then kills them off.

Case in point was Canoma new product no one really doing this type of product cheap and did the job, Adobe buys it kills it off then uses (from what I heard/read ) the tech to take After Effects into 2 1/2 D & 3D.

Do there really want Prem Elements AND another editor at the lower end of the market????

From a business point of view of course it's great move and I'd do the same, but I worry when all the big guns are the ones we can ONLY buy our software from what will happen to innovation I mean how much has Photoshop updated in the past few releases? Worth the upgrade?

I'm just getting ready for Adobeish keyboard shortcuts like Ctrl-Alt-Shift-I-Q for greenscreening, when Ctrl-G is free.

Anyhow, I'm sure you'll see After Effects with some really nice greenscreening tech.
