Important note

Flame Painter Connect is not compatible with Photoshop CC 2014 at this moment.*

* UPDATE (March 05, 2015): We have released the new plugin for Photoshop CC 2014, which you can download from our Download page.

Unfortunately, Adobe decided to remove all Flash integration (plugin panels were written in ActionScript, including Mini Bridge and Kuler) in exchange for the new HTML/CSS/Javascript made ones in new Photoshop CC 2014. This means that vendors like us will be required to write different versions of their products. This is not a simple task, especially if you add to the equation the fact that the documentation on how to do that is not ready yet by Adobe. We would of course like to make a plug-in version for CC 2014, but have to wait until Adobe will provide the final development kit and documentation on how to do the migration the proper way. 

The good news is, if you are a Creative Cloud customer, you will be able to install the new version and keep a previous one (CS6 or CC) installed together. This way, you will be able to create nice things with CC 2014 and use CC/CS6 to work with Flame Painter.

Have a great Tuesday!
