    Excellent comparison. Well done as usual. Let’s hope Apple will improve that effect in the near future. If Adobe can do it, so should Apple.

    Thanks for that comparison Larry.
    Here’s hoping Apple gets onto fixing these issues as soon as possible. It really seems like they let it out into the wild before making sure it was ready!

  3. Great review Larry…Is it me or does it feel like Adobe is always 1 step ahead of F/C these days? Welcome to MA BTW
