Adobe Aero desktop | Common questions

Read about common questions about Adobe Aero desktop.

What is the difference between Aero mobile (iOS) and Aero desktop?

Aero mobile (iOS) and Aero desktop have similar capabilities in terms of feature functionality. Aero mobile (iOS) makes it possible to create AR in AR with the added contextual view of the front-facing camera. 

Aero desktop does not enable a real-time view of AR in AR because there is no front-facing camera on most desktop hardware. Aero desktop provides greater control for placing content and adding complex interactivity. The desktop environment also provides direct access to content created in other applications.  

Where can I source assets to use in Aero desktop?

Aero desktop comes loaded with a collection of starter assets. The starter assets found in desktop are the same as the collection found in the starter assets on Aero mobile (iOS). You can source content through Adobe Dimension and Adobe Stock or any online marketplace that provides supported file types

What is the best way to edit the same Aero experience on both Aero desktop and Aero mobile (iOS)?

All documents created in Aero are saved in the Cloud as a Cloud Document.

The best way to work between two devices is to close out of the application on the primary device before trying to preview or edit the project on the secondary device.

Alternatively, you can export a .REAL file and open on the other device to continue editing.  

Is Aero desktop free?

Yes, the Aero desktop is free to download from or the Creative Cloud apps.
