Illustrator, Flash updates

Adobe today updated Illustrator CS3 and Flash CS3 in conjunction with updates to Dreamweaver CS3, Fireworks CS3, and Contribute CS3 as well as Photoshop CS3, InDesign CS3, and the entire Adobe CS3 family. The company today announced that its Photoshop CS3 software is due in April, which is expected to boost Intel-based Mac sales due to pent up demand from professional users. Adobe Illustrator CS3 allows users to create sophisticated artwork for virtually any medium with industry-standard drawing tools, flexible color controls, and professional type controls. The latest release of Adobe Illustrator CS3, now a Universal Binary, offers Live Color, integration with Adobe Flash, improved operating performance, a control panel, and an eraser tool. The update also features new document profiles, a crop area tool, an isolation mode, and Symbols for Flash. Adobe Illustrator CS3 is available for pre-order for $600, with upgrades priced from $200.

Adobe Flash CS3 Professional

Adobe Flash CS3 Professional, also a Universal Binary for native Intel-performance, is an advanced authoring environment enabling developers to create rich media content for the Web and mobile platforms. Flash CS3 Professional helps users create interactive websites, rich media advertisements, instructional media, presentations, games, and more.

Flash CS3 Professional supports Photoshop and Illustrator import capability, animation conversion to ActionScript, Adobe interface, ActionScript 3.0 development, and an advanced debugger. The update also features rich drawing capabilities, user interface components, advanced QuickTime export functionality, sophisticated video tools, and coding tools.

Adobe Flash CS3 Professional is available for pre-order for $700, with upgrades priced from $200.

    Anyone know if these both are Universal. Lots of talk about Photoshop being Uni, but no mention of Illustrator, InDesign, or Flash

    Yes they are!

    All the CS3 apps are UB acording to Adobe.

    I am glad Adobe bought Macromedia, as Flash always functioned and ran like a beta. Adobe knows how to make rock-solid applications.

    Any idea if we'll be seeing an Intel-native Shockwave any time this decade?

    re: shockwave ?

    You're retarded !

    Adobe just Updated almost their entire line of Products in less than 18 months [a rare and very hard thing to do for 2 platforms - Intle Macs and Vista] and all you're worried about is Shockwave_

    Dude - get over yourself_
