    • Adobe chose not to include the SkyBox VR Player, as they are developing their own immersive viewing system. If you want to continue using SkyBox VR Player, you can still access it through the Mettle plugins with Adobe CC 2017. When you update to CC 2018, there is an option to keep CC 2017 as well.

      Please contact Adobe support directly if you have any concerns/questions about this.
