My prayers have been answered: Lightroom 3 and Adobe Camera RAW will feature lens correction (perspective and distortions). Check out the video!
Adobe Creative Suite 5 will be officially announced on April 12 and will ship probably a month later. The crown jewel is, of course, Photoshop and it’s always fun to speculate on what it will bring.
What follows is the official announcement for the availability of Lightroom 3 beta 2. I’ll start playing with it right away and report my findings. I am a bit disappointed that there’s no word on any optical corrections, but I won’t judge anything for now.
Aperture 3 brings a number of improvements across the board, most notably better library organization, with easy catalog switching, searching and filtering; GPS integration; face detection; support for video; non-destructive brushes.
In my previous article, I listed the companies involved in the making of Avatar, as well as the tools used. Now I intend to bring more detail and show some of the technical challenges and innovations that helped shape the world of Pandora and its inhabitants.

Creating a completely new world from scratch, one with hundreds of species of flora and fauna and breathtaking landscapes is a daunting task that Cameron completed with flying colors. Let’s see what companies and software were involved.
