Anyone else disappointed in new Photoshop CC features?

Watched the demos today. The Deblur filter is nice, but I bet does not work as well as we'd hope. The Camera Raw filter is definitely helpful. But I kind of do that already with a lightroom round trip. The image straightening as in LR is nice. But I'm disappointed the new feature set is kind of lackluster. Remember the first time you saw content aware, scaling, or fill? That was groundbreaking.

 

Just5 curious what others think of the new version?

    Adobe software hasn't been "groundbreaking" for the last 5 years.... 'nuff said....

    Well, they're gonna add features, that's for sure, they might just end up being equally flabbergasting as parametric rounded corners.... *lol* To be fair, though, if I was a photographer I might be somewhat interested in the deblur thing, but otherwise I'm once more left with this "So what...?" feeling.

    See this page:

    Personally I think some of those features are great.  Better sharpening, detail preserving upsampling, the ability to run Camera Raw as a filter on an open image...  All these things can lead to making noticeably higher quality images.

    Yeah, sure, if I was a photographer I might get that tingle in my left big toe, but since I'm not and mostly use it to edit textures for my 3D work or create graphical designs, it feels a bit hum-ho...

    Still hoping for the TV Forensic Investor version?  Me too.

    Understood. 

     

    Seems like there's some 3D texture stuff listed there, though to be fair I've not gotten so far into 3D as to paint on 3D objects yet.

    I don't know a single person who would even consider PS for a second for this work, to be honest. If I needed organic texture painting in 3D, Mari/ Mudbox/ ZBrush are absolute no-brainers. PS is okay for working on the unwrapped 2D textures and my technical stuff I can slap on with cylindrical/ flat/ spherical projections, but that 3D painting stuff seems like Adobe is trying all too eagerly to prove something to the world...

    What good are new features in Photoshop not a single word about any Photoshop Bug being fixed. CS6 has been crashing from day one.  Most of the bugs that crash Photoshop have been fixed. Still remains one remains. Photoshop may not crash everyday but not a week goes by without a Photoshop crash in ScriptUIFlex.dll offset 7DF5.

    You know by now not to expect announcements of bugfixes.
