Adobe caught my eye with its marketing for Spark. I’ve liked what I’ve seen other people create with it, but I couldn’t figure out when people would use it instead of choosing a blog (for photo posts) or Premiere Pro (for video creation). I decided to grab some video footage and take it for a test drive.

I spent a few hours wandering around Pike Place Market and then assembled a video using Spark. It’s pretty fast and easy, but it’s definitely bare bones in terms of capabilities. I could see using it again to quickly assemble and distribute simple videos that don’t require much editing.
