Statement From Adobe About Acrobat And 3D

I asked Adobe a couple of questions regarding their recent release of Acrobat and their move away from 3D. Brian Domingo from Edelman, their external PR agency, came back to me with this statement:

“Adobe will continue to provide core support on Acrobat 9 Pro Extended until 6/26/2013. Other key software components of Acrobat Pro Extended, including Adobe Presenter and video transcoding are now included in Adobe Acrobat X Suite. The reason being is that after a detailed assessment of the 3D business, Adobe determined that the best way to support the interests of our manufacturing customers and partners is to migrate the ongoing development, delivery and support of the 3D translator technologies to a company with focus, expertise, and well-developed sales channels within the PLM market.
