Group objects

Group objects so that you can move, place or assign behaviors to many assets at the same time, dramatically speeding your editing workflow.  

For more details, see Place and Edit Scene Content.

Updated Cloud Document interface and performance 

Improved navigation of the Home tab across iOS and desktop – easily find past documents and check out new artist work on the Discover tab. Includes back-end updates to speed syncing of your documents in the cloud. Conflict avoidance upgrades make working on the same document on multiple devices smoother. 

Pins for Move to, Aim, Orbit and follow actions

Pins enable authors to direct the movement of objects in a scene. Drop a pin in the location where you want an object to end up. Pins are visible only at authoring time and can be used in behavior sequences containing the Move to, Aim, Orbit and Follow actions.  

For more details, see Add interactivity to digital assets.

Cut, copy, paste support

Aero desktop authors can now use keyboard shortcuts or toolbar controls to cut, copy and paste scene assets within the same project file.   

Enhanced shadow visibility  

Shadows are now cast on a wider surface area so they do not appear clipped.

New features in Aero desktop (0.1)

The October 2020 release has Adobe Aero for desktop. Aero desktop gives you the precision and control for placement of scene objects and adding complex sequences of interactivity to objects in your scene. The desktop environment also provides direct access to content being prepped on other desktop applications. Aero desktop comes with the same collection of starter assets that can be found in Aero mobile.


The best way to work on projects between Aero desktop and Aero mobile (iOS) is to do your heavy scene placement, alignment, and complex behavior sequences on desktop and then let your project sync to your Cloud Documents before closing Aero desktop. To view your project on Aero mobile (iOS), find your same project in the Home tab and open it up to scan and place in the real world. 

With this first public beta release of Aero desktop, the feature set is similar to what can be done on Aero mobile (iOS), the main difference being that there is no world-facing camera on most desktop hardware. So, editing on Aero desktop is done without viewing content directly in AR. The ability to publish an Aero project to a QR code or Behance and custom animate the path of an object are features currently available only on Aero mobile (iOS).
