    I don't know, I feel drawing pictures of a moving object is so constrained. I have a bit more of a filmy background, you story board a film which seems to be like wire framing your app. Then you go out and make your film, adjust shots when you need to on the fly. The storyboard may have SOME lighting information, but it mostly just has blocking and framing. Wireframes do that well. Why then do we need to spend so much time creating assets that are in the wrong format for a finished project, and then have all of this technical overhead to make it work in our app (aka using rastorized images in apps instead of figuring out what the devices actually can render for us dynamically).

    shrug cool that adobe is trying, but I feel they really just need to go back to basics on this one and build a new tool without all of the overhead and cruft. It isn't like starting over is so brutal for their CC business model. They are not losing photoshop customers, they are keeping CC customers and maybe adding new ones. I am not in their board meetings and i don't know their needs or motivations, but thats my outside perspective.

      All wise words. I can only say there are different initiatives at Adobe right now. Look for short- and long-term responses to UI design workflows.
