Omg, is this a joke ?

If I understand this correctly, it’s a not an update but a separate software….

Always nice to have an upgrade. The first paid X.5 since 6.5, isn’t it?

Some of the improvements look good. Finally a 3D point expression control and I’m interested to see if the new DOF stuff works like I’d like it to.

But I can’t help but feel that around 20% of the original purchase cost is quite a lot for a relatively small interim upgrade. At least the (part) backwards compatibility with CS5 means it’s not compulsory. I wouldn’t mind so much if some of the fundamental stuff were to be fixed, such as having a point-tracker that works, or proper edit-this-look-at-that with effect/mask/paint controls shown in context and a split screen A/B buffer, like Shake, Nuke or Fusion.

If it works as advertised, then it should be great.

Actually, the multi-track point is something that could easily be carried over to a match mover too and also to a 3D match moving system, with a bit of triangulation.

I wonder if this is the future? Programs like Nuke now have a 3D match-mover built in.

Ugh, to be honest, I really am not liking this constant updating schedule Adobe has adopted. This forces professionals to constantly spend money on upgrading because contracted work or working with various companies who have adopted it makes it impossible to avoid. Not only that, Adobe refuses to add backward compatibility (CS4, CS3 , CS2, CS etc) in their software, even when new “features” or “effects” weren’t used, to try and strong-arm everyone into upgrading. Guarantee CS6 won’t work with CS5 .

I would understand if someone saw the value of upgrading for 3 or 4 new effects if they were in need of those for their daily jobs; but in general, 4 “big” new features isn’t worth it, especially when it takes adobe 3 months to fix the bugs it usually ships with in each new release.

Pointless (it being paid) and should be a free upgrade.

Seems like they are money hungry…

Regardless of whether or not it should be a free upgrade, I think the main question here is will VH embrace the CS5 .5 version, or will they wait until the full CS6 is released?
