Adobe really has gone all out with the June 2016 updates of their flagship Creative Cloud bringing users brilliant updates that improve workflows across the board.
In Premiere Pro and Media Encoder Adobe has made media ingest and editing workflows faster than ever, these powerful new Media Management features allow users to copy media and edit it during ingest , transcode media on ingest, and generate lightweight proxy versions of RAW/Native files which can be switched to and from with a single click.
Additional new features in Premiere Pro include great new VR capabilities such as field of view mode for spherical stitched media. Users will also get a more responsive After Effects, as well as performance and stability enhancements across Adobes video applications.
The Essential Sound panel enables users to easily mix and fix their audio, and is now available in Audition CC.
Further improvements and additions to Adobe Stock and Creative Cloud Libraries mean that users will be able to find and license 4K video content you need seamlessly.
Adobe has gone another step further and integrated Dropbox support into the latest update of Premiere Clip given users the ability to publish directly to Twitter, as well as giving users a simple and easy way to watermark their content.
Feature highlights of the latest update to Creative Cloud video and audio tools include:
- Edit immediately during ingest allows Premiere Pro CC users to get straight to work, while importing their video and audio files in the background, and switch between native and proxy formats freely when using multiple devices via CreativeSync.
- Powerful proxy workflows in Premiere Pro CC and Adobe Media Encoder CC help editors work with heavy 8K, HDR and HFR media even on lightweight machines like laptops. Editors can natively with high-resolution formats up to 8K or with a new workflow that creates lightweight proxies at ingest.
- Enhanced Lumetri™ Colour tools within Premiere Pro CC adds HSL Secondary’s to expand the editor’s toolkit for making colour correction and adjustment easier for all filmmakers.
- Performance improvements like a new video and audio preview engine in After Effects CC delivers superior playback of cached frames for a smooth experience. You see overall efficiency improvements when interacting with the application while GPU-accelerated effects deliver faster rendering results.
- Cinema 4D Exporter Improvements. Transition a project from After Effects CC to Maxon Cinema 4D with new export options. Animated text and shape layers can now be saved directly into the Cinema 4D file format. Add depth and customizations to your text and shapes in Cinema 4D and changes are automatically updated in After Effects for a roundtrip 3D motion graphics workflow.
- Easier and more efficient Character Animator includes a simplified puppet creation process that enables users to easily tag puppet layers easily and record multiple takes of a character’s movement. Users can animate puppets to respond to motion and trigger animation accordingly.
- New Essential Sound panel in Audition CC enables novices to mix audio content with professional results in a single panel. Modelled after the Lumetri Colour panel in Premiere Pro, the Essential Sound panel provides simple controls to unify volume levels, repair sound, improve clarity, and help your video projects sound like they were mixed by an audio engineer.
- Also new in Audition, Direct Export with Adobe Media Encoder enables you to export video projects with finished audio directly with Adobe Media Encoder, saving the trip back to Premiere Pro. All formats and pre-sets are available, including formats which support re-wrap to minimize re-encoding video. Get full control over audio channel streams for multichannel audio formats, such as MXF, ensuring compatibility with your workflows and standards.
- Quickly find Adobe Stock assets with new filtered search in Creative Cloud Libraries. Licensed assets in your library are now badged for easy identification, videos are displayed with duration and format information, and saved videos are linked to video previews on the Adobe Stock site.
