Frequently asked questions.

What is Adobe Aero?

Adobe Aero is the only all-in-one augmented reality (AR) authoring and viewing platform that makes it easier for designers and developers to design, collaborate, and publish interactive immersive experiences in the real world.

To learn more about Aero, see What is Adobe Aero.

How much does Aero cost?

Adobe Aero is free, though you will need to create a login ID.

Can I use Aero to create augmented reality?

Yes, you can make AR experiences that are viewable through mobile devices.

Is Aero available without a subscription?

Yes, Adobe Aero is free, though you will need to create a login.

Are there desktop and mobile versions?

Yes, the Aero mobile app (iOS) and the desktop beta app (macOS and Windows) have similar capabilities in terms of feature functionality. The mobile app makes it possible to create AR in AR with the added contextural view of the front-facing camera.

Aero for desktop does not enable a real-time view of AR in AR because there is no front-facing camera on most desktop hardware. The desktop app does give you greater control for placement and adding complex sequences of interactivity to objects in your scene. The desktop environment also provides direct access to content being prepped on other desktop applications.

Can I use Aero on an iPad?

Yes. Systems requirements.

Can I view augmented reality without downloading an app?

Viewers do not need to install an app. Viewers on recent iOS devices can view content in the Aero app clip without needing to install an app first.

Viewers who launch (or “invoke”) the app clip using one of the supported invocations are presented with an app clip card on their screen and can proceed to open the experience in the Aero app clip.

What types of assets can I import into Aero?

You can bring in your own photos, layered files, audio, or other 2D and 3D content. Aero optimizes imported PSD, JPEG, OBJ, GLB, FBX (on desktop), GIF, PNG Sequence, WAV, and MP3 assets for AR. You can also bring in assets from Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Substance 3D Stager.

How can I share the experiences I create with Aero?

You can share AR experiences you create using Aero with stakeholders and reviewers using one or more of the following options:

  • Quick link (including QR code)
  • REAL
  • Image or video
