    Accelerating Flash Catalyst adoption

    Stan20xx
      I know our team will want to adopt FC as quickly as possible.
      If FC is an upgrade to Flash, as opposed to a new product, our enterprise (30k people) will be able to acquire and integrate it more easily.

      If it's a new product, well, it becomes an exception to the current toolset and we might not get it for years, if at all.
      No joke!

          Flash Catalyst is not an "upgrade" from Flash, nor will it replace Flash Professional at all. Flash Catalyst is a new product. No word from Adobe yet on when it will become available, for how much, and if it will be a part of any of their Suite packages.

            Personally i feel that FC should be included in the Creative Suite ... especially the Premium Design suite. Most designers I know use Indesign, Photoshop and Illustrator religiously but barely use Flash and Dreamweaver (except for very basic web projects.) For me personally this is due to coding and scripting. I cannot express my ideas properly due to my lack of web language capabilities! FC will really help (not entirely solve) that problem.

             

            I don't see this tool being as beneficial to the already accomplished web designer however. If they already have a great understand of actionscript, I don't see why they would feel the need to purchase and learn a new software. Kinda the way html coders view Dreamweaver. They may however use it for quick prototypes and obviously when collaborating on Flex projects.

             

            Just my 2 cents.
