Why Adobe Fresco for Windows 10 is available only for Microsoft devices?

I have an Asus ZenBook and I can not dowload it. Is there some real tecnical reason behind this decision?

When would be possible to know if this app will be available also for other Windows Users?

I really hope you can work quickly with other hardware partners.  I have a Lenovo X1 Yoga with the same Intel GPU as a Surface, and it also has 10-point touch and full Wacom pen support.

I keep on getting notifications that this is the right answer to the question in my post, but it is NOT.

 

I asked WHY Fresco has been developed for iPad one year before any other platform, and on top of that why you claim that is now avalable for PC when in reality is only available for some Microsoft and Wacom devices, which are just a portion of yours PC subscribers... You keep on answering that is now available for Surface and Wacom MobileStudio...  which is not an answer, it is actually a way to avoid to answer the question.

 

A "good" answer for example could be: " Here in Adobe we have users Gold ( Apple ones ), users Silver ( Microsoft and Wacom users ) and all the others... well, we really don't care."

 

Being one of the "others" than I could say: " if that is the case, how come my subscription does not cost any less than the gold and silver people?"

We realize that the number of Windows devices is currently quite limited but the Fresco team is working on supporting additional Windows devices.

The same question for Lenovo Yoga C940. Other software like Clip Studio is working very well right out of the box.

I have a Lenovo C940 15" 2 in 1 laptop and I cannot install Fresco. We all know it has what it takes to run it. This is so unfair! We all pay the same subscription price in the end, anyone should be able to use the apps on any device with a Windows tablet mode available.

FYI I just checked on Google for an .exe installation file of Fresco to download (based on recommendations I could read here). From there the installation was complete and it logged me automatically in my Creative Cloud Subscription and Fresco is now available and works like a charm. This was just obvious my laptop could run it. So really Adobe, what kind of game are you playing here with your subscribers? Why not making it available from the creative cloud app?

Hi,


I have a HP Elitebook x360 which both have good resolution, pressure sensitivity etc.

Would really like this series aswell to be added to Frescos device list.


I enjoy working in Photoshop more than Illustrator when drawing on a large monitor but the UI resolution (even on 200 %) really makes drawing difficult on smaller screens. Fresco seems like the next way to go.

 

Thanks in advance.

Would also like to add the HP Elitebook x360 screen supports 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity and the HP Active Pen has support for tilt and is apparantly based on Wacom AES technology. 


Any timeline on when good products that easily could run this software (in this case the HP Elitebook 360) will be added would be much appreciated, thanks!

hi - nice to see : ) thanks

Feature request: PC/Surface Book:

Can you please add some PC keyboard shortcuts - priority : "R" for rotate the artboard  while in "desktop" mode  - like in Photoshop

 

reason: I use Fresco on my Surface Book (but often in "desktop" format - hooked up to external monitor/ Wacom Tablet - mainly to save neck strain)

Hey,

 

I understand the frustration that adobe cloud won't let you install fresco on your device if its not on the list of supported devices. If you look on the minimum specs however you see that a broad number of windows tablets or tablet-pcs should be able to run fresco. I was also extremely frustrated with this and cancelled by adobe subscription because of that. I searched for a workaround and I am using the free version at the moment with a yoga x1 subnotebook.

 

This is how to run it on a non supported device: Just install fresco by downloading the files required for the installation from another source than adobes download manager (which won't let you download it...). Then install it with setup normally and you will be asked for your account when running fresco to register your licence and access the cloud. The only issue I have is that the inverser button isn't working.

 

Good luck, frustrated fellow artists.

Hi,


Thank you for the tip. Even though I understand there's more complexity adding new devices I would argue that it would be better to just let Adobe subscribers download and install Fresco. Problems can then be dealt with afterwards. Followed your advice and now it's working with pressure sensitivity and everything. Good tip! 🙂
Update: Tilt works on my HP x360 aswell.

Hi,

 

You can do a google search for the .exe file

I found mine on this website: https://filecr.com/windows/adobe-fresco/

 

From there you can install it regardless the Creative Cloud app compatibility warnings.

 

Note that you may experience bad performances if your computer specs are not similar to the ones of the compatible devices listed by Adobe

Following the post by @MOX, I installed Adobe Fresco (from 1.5 to 1.8) on a Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga X1 and it works beautifully, including the impressive Live Brushes! It looks like Adobe Fresco already works great on many more devices than the very limited official list. Adobe, if you need help testing Fresco on more devices, why don't you involve the community in beta testing?

Finally, in Fresco 1.9 (August 2020) Adobe extended support to basically every device with a modern GPU (Intel or Nvidia GPU with DirectX Feature Level 12.1). I happily installed the official Fresco 1.9 on my Lenovo 2-in-1. See system requirements
