The Expression Suite

Posted on 9/29/2008 @ 1:37 AM in #Vanilla .NET by | Feedback | 3690 views

So I'm curious, how many of us can articulate clearly what the pieces of expression suite of products are, and what are they used for.

Here goes my try -

  1. Expression Web: Used for editing HTML etc.
  2. Expression Media: Media management tool - think video etc.
  3. Expression Encoder: Encoding/Decoding media, or to bundle media with a silverlight player.
  4. Expression Design: Graphic Design Tool. It can support many input formats, including PSD, and can export to XAML among many other formats.
  5. Expression Blend: What you'd use to edit XAML UIs. Can open VSStudio projects directly.

Sound off but keep it civil:

Expression Web: The program I used for editing ASPX UIs pages until it got integrated into Visual Studio.
