Adobe drops animation software
Software publisher Adobe Systems has announced that it will halt sales of LiveMotion, the company's application for creating animation content in formats such as Macromedia's Flash and Apple's QuickTime. According to a notice posted on Adobe's LiveMotion site, the company stopped selling the product last week and will halt technical support after March 31, 2004.
Adobe launched the current version of LiveMotion last year, positioning the product as an adjunct to rather than a replacement for Macromedia's vastly more popular Flash development application.
