Why is premiere cs6 and AE cs6 going to remove the great feature of allowing video to be worked on in Photoshop and then bringing in the psd as footage into premiere or AE to continue your edit.
Perhaps because it wasn't so great and prone to a million workflow issues? I've never used it, but off hand I could think of at least 2 very rational reasons: framerate mismatches (including field issues) and even more critically colros getting screwed up due to different color profile settings. And then of course there's that ugly part about Quicktime doing all this video decoding/ encoding in PS. Also using content aware on moving footage doesn't strike me as a typical use case due to the absence of the temporal component and the resulting possible flicker issues. Dunno, but these things alone explain it well enough. That aside probably some of that stuff is already in the works natively for AE, so this may be a temporary issue.
Photoshop changed a lot about how it works in CS6. We didn't have time to adapt all of our integration features to catch up to the changes, so we had to remove the feature for now rather than have it be broken.
We are working on getting the integration between Photoshop and the video applications to a better place as soon as we can.
Todd thank you for your answer and acknowledgement that the loss of Photoshop integration is something that will be remedied in the future. Limitations on connectivity stifle creativity, strong fast links between all of Adobe’s products will allow creatives the freedom to push the boundaries on what’s deliverable in ways that we still have not thought of.
Thanks for your reply and thank you for contributing towards a great product.
