New Delhi, Delhi, July 31, 2012 — Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) today announced that Krishna aur Kans, an animated feature film presented by Reliance Animation, has been powered by Adobe technologies including AdobeÂ® FlashÂ® Professional, Adobe PremiereÂ® Pro, After EffectsÂ® and PhotoshopÂ®. Set for release on 3 August 2012, Krishna aur Kans will be India’s first stereoscopic 3D animated feature film marking a milestone in the Indian animation industry. A team of over 1,200 exceptional artists have worked over the last five and a half years on this movie using a host of Adobe technologies to bring to life the narrative of Krishna, who is set to mesmerize the audience with his charm and valor. While most of the global releases (in Hindi, English, Tamil and Telugu) are in stereoscopic format, the film will also be released in 2D.
For this project, the team at Reliance Animation used Adobe Flash Professional and After Effects extensively, giving the age-old heritage of Indian story telling a digital avatar. In fact, the animation in the film has been done primarily using Adobe Flash software, crafting a magnum opus canvas to help viewers relive the time of Krishna. Additionally, the film has been specially made to support multiple contemporary platforms such as theatres, televisions, computers, tablet devices and mobile screens. The team also used Adobe Premiere Pro as one of the key software in their workflow for offline editing.
