Adobe LiveMotion was a product created by Adobe Systems first released in 2000 and as a direct competitor to Macromedia Flash. It replaced Adobe ImageStyler, which Adobe had previously sold from 1998 to 2000.
LiveMotion was used to create interactive animated graphics. It was able to export to a variety of formats, including QuickTime and Macromedia Flash. LiveMotion has an interface and motion timeline similar to After Effects and had the ability to share files across using the Adobe exchange file format.
Adobe released its final major version, LiveMotion 2.0, before discontinuing development on November 15, 2003 because of poor sales due to competition from its rival. Technical support ended on March 31, 2004. In early 2005, Adobe and Macromedia announced that they would merge, which would likely have resulted in the LiveMotion project being scrapped anyway.
