3D DESIGN
👀 Adobe’s secret ‘Project Neo’ project, Create & Design 3D Objects

Project Neo

Adobe’s ‘Project Neo,’ a powerful tool that helps you create illustrations faster and supercharges your 2D designs with 3D magic, is now available in beta.

With its easy-to-use interface and familiar Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator controls, you can produce stellar icons, lively drawings, and unique dimensional shapes in minutes.

You'll have more control over color, mid-tones, and shadows and can add depth and geometry to your designs with simple twists, turns, and tweaks.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
🪄 Adobe’s new research project, ‘VideoGigaGAN,’ allows you to upscale your videos with AI

Adobe’s latest research project, ‘VideoGigaGAN,’ went viral this week. Researchers developed a new generative AI model that can upscale blurry videos up to 8X their original resolution!

According to Adobe, VideoGigaGAN outperforms other Video Super Resolution (VSR) methods by providing more fine-grained details without introducing "AI weirdness" to the footage.

This model is a research preview, and there's no guarantee that Adobe will make VideoGigaGAN available to consumers via Creative Cloud software like Premiere Pro.
