Across industries, 3D as a design medium is becoming an essential part of prototyping, branding, merchandising, manufacturing, and experiences. 3D has taken on its own life that can be seen in graphic art and design around the world. It is also redefining digital experiences and connecting us to augmented and virtual reality workflows.
Focusing on these initiatives requires the full commitment of resources. And as a result, we’ve stopped future development of Adobe Fuse (Beta), a 3D character creation software acquired in 2015.
We have tried to keep Fuse available as long as possible, but, unfortunately, it will soon stop working on the newest Mac OS (10.15), once it releases later this year, due to incompatible technology components. You will continue to be able to use Fuse on older Mac operating systems or on Windows for the next year. Fuse will be removed from Creative Cloud and will no longer be available for download starting on September 13, 2020.
3D characters remain an important aspect of many projects, and we plan to still have robust character workflows in the future. In conjunction, we’re pleased to announce a refresh of Mixamo.com, our 3D character rigging and animation web service. You’ll be able to find dozens of new ready-to-use 3D characters and a refreshed UI.
Our resources remain committed to 3D & AR initiatives, and we’re excited to continue this journey into the new generation of design.
