In a recent blog post authored by Pete Tomkies for Videomaker, they delve into the latest exciting updates from Adobe's Creative Cloud Suite. These updates are centered on two of Adobe's flagship programs: Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects. So, let's break down the highlights.
Adobe Premiere Pro has seen a remarkable boost in performance, with the beta version 24.0 delivering five times faster timeline performance compared to the previous iteration. This not only makes your work faster but also more reliable. Notably, the Effects Manager can now help troubleshoot incompatible plug-ins and restore your work automatically. Adobe has also sprinkled some modernizations into the code for a smoother user experience.
One of the standout features is the AI-powered Text-Based editing, introduced earlier this year. It simplifies the rough cut creation process by allowing you to paste interview transcripts as a foundation. Even more impressively, it can now detect and remove those pesky filler words like "ums" and "uhs" with a single click.
The "Enhance Speech" feature in Premiere Pro is another game-changer. It's a direct response to user requests from Adobe Podcast, enabling you to eliminate noise from voice recordings and polish audio to sound as if it were professionally recorded.
On the color front, Adobe Premiere Pro now boasts enhanced Automatic Tone Mapping, consolidated settings in the Lumetri Color panels, and better LUT management. There's also a fix for a QuickTime issue that affected project exports.
Beyond these features, Adobe has been listening to its community, introducing new additions like metadata and timecode burn-in effects, project templates for efficient setup, custom exports across projects, Blackmagic RAW installer guidance, and batch selection of markers.
Meanwhile, Adobe After Effects takes a huge leap forward, offering a genuine 3D workspace for motion graphics. You can import, animate, light, shade, and render 3D models, combining them seamlessly with 2D elements. Plus, there's a high-performance GPU-accelerated engine for achieving photorealistic results. Adobe is even throwing in curated Substance 3D assets for free via Creative Cloud libraries.
The AI-powered rotoscoping feature in After Effects speeds up object isolation, especially for tricky elements like overlapping limbs, hair, and transparent objects.
Shifting focus to Frame.io, an online collaboration platform that Adobe acquired in 2021, the latest updates offer more ways to compare, review, and approve project elements. You can compare different media types side by side and leave comments and annotations as you go.
Adobe has also extended its Camera to Cloud (C2C) connections within Frame.io, catering to various professionals, including filmmakers, photographers, and news and sports media teams. They've even added support for the Fujifilm GFX-100ii's 102-megapixel photography and 8K video.
In a significant move, Adobe has introduced Frame.io Storage Connect, allowing direct linking of Amazon AWS S3 buckets to Frame.io. This provides data control, compliance management, and a reduction in storage costs of up to 60%. Plus, it offers lightning-fast onboarding.
The subscription model for Adobe's Creative Cloud may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it's undeniably efficient in delivering new features and updates as soon as they're available. The democratization of advanced video-making technology, including entry-level products like Accsoon, is another noteworthy aspect, making these tools accessible to a broader audience.
