Adobe is hosting its max conference this week — and as usual, it’s using the event to show off some of its latest experiments. Indeed, Adobe even has a special keynote just to show off its craziest demos, but the company apparently has so much to show, that it decided to demo one prototype early: Project SonicScape.
The idea here is simple: how will VR/AR editors best edit their sound during this 3D environment. the solution is as easy because it is ingenious: you just visualize the sound correct within the 3D space. “Project SonicScape takes the guesswork out of the immersive content editing expertise by visualizing where the audio is, it’s frequency and intensity, and thus creating it that much easier to bring immersive content to life,” an Adobe spokesperson told us.
Given that this is very much a visual project, your time is probably best spent just looking at Adobe’s video explainer below. It’s worth noting, though, that the company has made some heavy investments in 360 video editing. Among other things, it acquired mettle’s skybox tools earlier this year and made Mettle co-founder Chris Bobotis its “Director of Immersive.”
