Adobe adds livestreaming into Creative Cloud apps so designers can share their skills
Adobe Live-streaming features
Adobe is giving final touch to live-streaming features that are built directly into its Creative Cloud apps, the company announced at its annual Adobe Max creativity conference.
A beta version of the feature is currently available to a whitelisted group of users on Adobe Fresco. The feature allows users to go live and share a link for anyone online to watch and comment on their streams.
As The Verge reports, “When you see a live stream of someone in our products, you want to know what tool they’re using — when they use the tool and when they stop using it — almost like a form of the waveform of video,” Belsky told The Verge.
“But imagine a waveform related to what tools people are using, and imagine being able to source all live streams that have ever been done in a particular product, by a particular tool, to be able to learn how people are doing something.”
Available current live streaming
Live streams can often run as long as three hours, and the company says the average watch time on any video on Adobe Live is over 66 minutes. Some streams also show a tool timeline, seen above, that tracks which tools were used throughout an artist’s workflow.
Adobe’s live-streaming feature aims to be more useful than just watching a video on YouTube. “Designers say they learned by sitting next to designers, not by going to design school as much. We just need to enable that on a massive scale,” Belsky says. “It also makes our products viral.”
