Developing an AR Experience Has Never Been Easier Than with Aero
For a long time, Adobe has been a leader in the development of creative design software. With products like Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Muse and Illustrator, it’s not a surprise that a product like Aero has been released. Adobe Aero is an app for IOS and Android systems that allows you to easily create an AR experience for free. By simply importing files from programs like Photoshop, which Aero calls assets, you can create an AR experience for yourself, for an app or for you to share with others.
What’s it all about?
Adobe have designed Aero as a coding free AR design program. At Adobe Max last year, Adobe demoed their new software and this year have released the software. Aero is available on IOS and Android for free and beta trials are taking place for desktop.
Aero offers a friendly interface that allows the user to place interactive assets in the room around them. There are very few menus in the app and developing your scene is easy to do using your creative cloud. Aero allows you to create 2D and 3D environments are displayed at Adobe Max.
In the demo at Adobe Max, Chantel Benson created a 3D jungle behind a Scarlet Macaw which she then animated. The Aero app let Chantel add depth to her layered background to create a 3D illusion, alter the scale of the environment and animated the Macaw into an infinite flight loop. The demo showed what the Aero app can do on the go and opens the door for what the Desktop version will be capable of.
For fast and easy design, the IOS and Android apps provide a range of tools for creating an AR experience. For hardcore creators however, the app might not give them what they need. To get the full range of design tools, creators will need to wait another year for the desktop version. According to Adobe, the desktop app will let you build more interactive and custom models.
The future of augmented reality is only growing stronger with time. With the release and development of applications like Aero, AR is only going to become easier to develop. This is going to give us a lot of opportunities for integrating AR with our lives and will make the future a very advanced place.
