Adobe & Mettle SkyBox products: 360 degrees better.

We are very proud to announce that Adobe has acquired SkyBox Suite*. We believe this is a winning scenario for our customers, Adobe, and Mettle, in a move that will advance and further democratize the 360/VR medium. Our plugins have been recognized as best-in-class by Adobe and 360/VR content creators worldwide, making the SkyBox Suite a logical addition to the Adobe Creative Cloud offering. This means that complete 360/VR production workflows will be available to all Adobe customers who hold subscriptions for After Effects, Premiere Pro or the full Creative Cloud, by the end of the year.  A huge thank-you to everyone who has bought our plugins. Kudos to all the 360° pioneers.
