Firstly it may not be necessary to uninstall Version Cue CS4 before installing CS5 but I like to keep things clean and being that there is no Version Cue CS5 I see no reason to keep it on my system. Might as well take care of it now and start doing things differently. Obviously if it’s critical to the way you have been doing things you may want to wait until CS5 has been around for a bit (tried and true) and you come up with another way to handle versioning.

Adobe has not included Version Cue with CS5 and will no longer be developing or including it in the future.

I’m showing you how to uninstall Version Cue CS4.

So now is the time to export those files.

Exporting Projects to Save

  1. Log into Version Cue CS4 in your web browser.
  2. Go to the Projects tab.
  3. Put a checkmark next to the project (one at a time) to Export it.
  4. Click the Export button in the bar just above the projects list.
  5. Select how you want to Export the project (Export Project to Folder for me).
  6. (Only going over the To Folder method but from here you should be able to figure out) Browse to the folder you want to Export to and *Select* it and then click the Select button. (DON’T double click the folder you want to Export to, you have to Select it and then hit Select button. on Mac not sure about Windows folder selecting method?)
  7. Now in the browser click the Export button just above the Browse to folder area. It will now export the project to the folder.
  8. Repeat as necessary

Now to Uninstall Version Cue

  1. First make sure you have quit all other applications. Go to your Applications folder > Utilities > Adobe Installers > Adobe Creative Suite 4 Design Premium (or whatever suite you have) and double click on it.
  2. When the admin authorization box pops up type your admin password to continue.

  3. It will take a couple of seconds and the Installer Uninstall dialog will pop up. Number (1) in the pic below shows that this does give you the Uninstall option. You will want to have it uninstall the Version Cue Application Preferences (2). And then scroll to select Version Cue (3).

  4. Now click the Uninstall button at the bottom and let it do it’s thing than you will be done. 🙂 Make sure if you have installed Flash Catalyst beta to uninstall it before installing CS5! The uninstaller is in the FC beta application folder.

Adobe Flash Catalyst is a new application that Adobe has been working on for some time. It allows designers to make interfaces in their graphics apps such as Photoshop or Illustrator and then take them into Catalyst to add motion animations and interactivity WITHOUT CODING!

Adobe Flex and AIR icons

I’m not the code writing developer type so this is my simple understanding which I’m hoping is what some of you might need?

RIA stands for Rich Internet Applications. They are basically web applications that have some of the functionality of regular desktop applications. They can be developed using Flash, Flex (a framework that developers can use to build user interfaces with MXML and XML which is then compiled and turned into SWF file to run in Adobe Flash Player).

ScreenFlow application icon screen capture

ScreenFlow is the best most Mac like screen capture application I have used! If you do video screen captures you HAVE to try it. It beats all others in my opinion and I have used most of them.

With ScreenFlow you can capture your desktop and your iSight camera at the same time! It also offers many really good features when editing such as the ability to have mouse clicks heard, a red growing ring from mouse clicks that they call radar effect, background windows and desktop blur automatically (it focuses on the window you are working in and blurs the rest) this can be set for whatever duration, and many others. It ROCKS! Also ScreenFlow captures don’t look washed out like some others.

For Export options it has:

  • Web-High
  • Web-High (Best Quality)
  • Web-Low
  • Web-Low (Best Quality)
  • PAL DV
  • NTSC DV
  • Lossless
  • iPhone
  • Apple TV
  • iPod

You can also scale the final output by % or to a custom pixel size.

You can also EASILY add chapter markers when editing and choose to include them when Exporting, this allows viewers to choose the chapter in a drop down menu in Quicktime.

You can name the chapters whatever you want I just typed Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 to test it.
(Not sure about chapter markers if converting to other formats because I haven’t done it?).
