In addition to opening pre-orders for Illustrator for iPad, Adobe is available today with new features for Premiere Pro as well as After Effects and Audition. New to Premiere Pro are scene editing detectors, HDR for broadcasters and the new option for fast export. In the public beta, After Effects gets updated camera navigation tools and more.
Adobe announced the updates to its Creative Cloud apps in a press release today. First, Adobe explained its goal of streamlining the workflows for video editing in Premiere Pro:
The Premiere Pro team has analyzed workflows from start to finish to identify areas that can be tweaked, always with the aim of speeding up editorial tasks and simplifying tasks while ensuring that the user is in full control of their content retains.
Here are the three major changes with the latest version of Premiere Pro:
Scene editing detection Thanks to Adobe Sensei, editors can find cuts in previously edited videos faster and more accurately. The feature adds cuts and markups so users can apply effects to individual recordings and quickly and efficiently re-edit previously rendered content.
HDR for broadcasters Allows users to create programs in Rec2100 HLG HDR for modern HDR broadcasts, including automatic color conversion, HDR range support, color space overrides for incorrect metadata, and full color management for Apple ProRes and Sony XAVC Intra formats.
Fast export (in public beta) provides easy access to the most popular and frequently used export settings right from the header in Premiere Pro. Editors can use the standard high quality H.264 output with matching source settings, or they can choose from a short list of H.264 presets that can help you reduce the size of your export files.
With regards to After Effects, new changes are being made to the public beta:
3D transformation gizmos Help users navigate a scene faster and more intuitively. Scale, position, and rotate layers with helpful guides that show how far a layer or object has moved and how many degrees has been rotated. Users can switch between gizmo modes to focus on a single task and make precision adjustments efficiently.
Camera navigation tools are reinterpreted and offer artists an intuitive and flexible approach to navigating 3D spaces. The new Standard scene camera Optimizes the scene setup. By adding multiple cameras to a scene, different angles are displayed and objects are intuitively wrapped, panned and moved around objects using customizable keyboard shortcuts.
Another feature is planned for the future:
Sequence takes Allows users to arrange selected settings on the Character Animator’s timeline (similar to the Sequence Layers feature in After Effects). Arranging and playing takes place in turn to streamline your workflow on the timeline. Learn more about Character Animator or download the Character Animator Beta today.
In addition to these changes, the latest releases include the following performance improvements (with the exception of the channel effects, which will be available “soon”):
ProRes multicam performance Premiere Pro can support up to 2x more streams, which speeds up the editing workflow with this widely used format.
Channel effects are now GPU-accelerated and perform up to 1.65 times faster in After Effects. These include minimax, shift channels, set channels and channel combine
OpenEXR preview multi-part and multi-channel files are now up to three times faster in After Effects (this improvement was incorporated in the August After Effects performance update).
Faster scanning of effects for VST3 and Audio Unit (AU) plugins In Audition and Premiere Pro, this means faster startup times for users with third-party audio plugins. Scanning effects is up to 15x faster on macOS and up to 10x faster on Windows.
The new versions of Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Audition are available now through the Creative Cloud Mac app.
