seems like a bit of old news for most of us, since the ability to do this has been around for a few years now. but i guess its good that they're making a point to showcase it for those that aren't familiar with the process already.

I'm guessing they'd like to talk up the parts that haven't been around, like the ability to place 3D models into Photoshop CS3EX, etc.

I was about to complain that there are no Canadian dates, but then I noticed they're not even going to LA?

Did anyone else make it out? I was there; some good info presented and I ended up winning a little something so it made it all worth while. Anyone else see presentation in other cities?

It's REALLY old news...and it's a really tiny tour...not coming to my town (4 hours away is the closest date). I would DEFINITELY attend.

I went to this in San Diego and it was completely weak. There were no real tricks or tips here, or maybe I just walked out too early. It seemed more like a pitch selling Adobe products to 3d artists. "Render, then edit in premiere, and oh look - you can edit the audio and do after effects work in one render!" Oh boy, oh boy - big news to us all. I asked about the translation of camera data between AE and C4d, and how they plan to improve the process and was told to go to www.aessentials.com for "advanced information". Seeing as how this tour was the only reason I even went to SIGGRAPH, I was extremely upset. Did anyone get the same type of experience?

My take on it is.... If you want to save the trip and still see the presentation, just go to adobe.com and read the description of the programs. I just want Adobe to hurry up and buy Cinema 4d so they can integrate the programs properly. If you look at Maxon's line-up of software, C4d seems out of place and out of their own league. Even the Maxon booth at SIGGRAPH seemed more dedicated to Magna-art creation than anything else.

The phrase "Power integration tour" was concocted by some marketing genius who never used an Adobe app other than Acrobat and has no idea what Cinema 4D even is. That title sets expectations so high (even though the reality of the integration is pretty low, and mostly the result of Maxon's work, not Adobes) that you're bound to disappoint 80+% of the audience. It's unfortunate, but I can't say I'm surprised. There's no real incentive for companies to do technical in-depth demos.
