Learn about new features and enhancements in June 2020 and other 2020 releases of Aero.

New Features in Adobe Aero 1.5

The June 2020 release of Aero has the following enhancements:

Scene graph

Scene graph

You can view all the contents in the 3D scene in Aero’s scene graph interface. You can also easily rename, delete, and lock assets, make targeted selections, and toggle visibility. To open the scene graph in Edit mode, tap the icon on the lower right corner of the screen. 

For more information on scene graph, see Place digital assets and edit the scene.

Spatial audio

Spatial audio

You can now add spatial audio to assets and create richer, expressive, and more immersive AR experiences.

To activate the spatial audio in Aero, see Add spatial audio.

Photoshop document lighting

PSD lighting

Aero casts light on objects primarily from the top down and uses an indoor image for lighting. So, depending on the way you rotate, your object gets brighter or darker depending on the light and space around. Hence, your object and the layered Photoshop document (PSD) file can look darker in AR than it does in the thumbnail of your CC Library.

For more information on PSD lighting, see Prepare Photoshop assets for Aero.

3D gizmo

3D gizmo

Use 3D gizmo to select and interact with objects in the scene. You can select an object and tap on the individual tool icons to move, scale, or rotate the object with precision. The gizmo handle represents the axis X, Y, and Z, and are color coded for better user interaction.

For more information on 3D gizmo, see Move,scale, and rotate.

 

New features in Adobe Aero 1.4

The March 2020 release of Aero has the following enhancements:

Manage conflicting edits in cloud documents

Interlop

You can seamlessly co-edit your cloud documents on multiple devices. When you open a cloud document on a second device after editing it on a primary device, a dialog box appears on the second device that prompts you to accept the changes. When you choose to accept the changes that have been made on the primary device, the experience reloads with the newer version on the second device.

For more information on cloud documents, see Work with cloud documents.

Move, scale, and rotate options

move-rotate

In the Edit mode, when you select one or more objects, the toolbar shows new options to move, scale, and rotate. The improved toolbar with sliders and text input helps you control the position, size, and orientation of assets with ease.

Use the new Autoscale feature to import an asset into the screen and watch Aero automatically adjust the size of the assets to fit into the screen view. You can also change the asset size to its original dimension, or lock the aspect ratio of the asset.
