- Adobe CC 2014 was released on 18 June 2014.
- When I updated the Creative Cloud desktop app, a new version of each Adobe app was installed (Premiere Pro, Photoshop, Audition, After Effects, Illustrator and even Media Encoder)
- The previous CC version was not be replaced, but kept alongside the new CC 2014 version. (Note that Premiere Pro CC could not open on my computer while the other apps could)
- Having two versions of everything takes up precious hard disk space.
- Can we delete the previous CC version? Not "delete", but they can be uninstalled.
- WARNING fellow users: Do not uninstall the previous version until you have synced you customized setting and presets.
- I noticed from online discussions the problems that other users faced.
- Photoshop presets have to be transferred from the previous CC to the new Photoshop CC 2014. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/preset-migration-photoshop-cc.html
- The fast way to migrate customized presets is to go to the previous PS CC user menu > Sync Settings Now (mac: Application menu > username, pc: Edit > username). Then go to the new PS CC 2014, go to Sync Settings Preferences and choose Download the Settings.
- To uninstall the previous version of Media Encoder CC, you have to uninstall Premiere Pro CC and/or After Effects CC.
- Note to Adobe: This installing process is a lot of extra work and time wasted. Not good.
- New features in Adobe video apps include Live Text Templates, Masking and Tracking plus new integration that leverage the power of Adobe After Effects CC inside Adobe Premiere Pro CC.
I own Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro and Sony Vegas Pro (all original and paid software). So I get the best of every world.
