Adobe Acquires Oculus Medium from Facebook

adobeAdobe, one of the world’s leading creation software companies, acquired Oculus Medium, Facebook’s virtual reality sculpting tool.

The amount of the deal was not disclosed.

Adobe is one of the world’s leading creation software companies, committed to providing 3D and immersive tools for artists, including Adobe Dimension and the Substance tools suite.

The acquisition will enable Adobe to accelerate 3D & immersive offerings.
