Adobe is getting the jump on NAB with the announcement of a ton of new and exciting features coming in the next release of Adobe Premiere Pro and Media Encoder. With the move to the subscription model Adobe no longer releases new versions or sells upgrades to their software. If you are a Creative Cloud subscriber you get full access to any and all new updates, versions and/or releases as they become available. That's why many of us will refer to these pre-release announcements as CSNext. I'm really looking forward to learning more about these new features and seeing them demonstrated at NAB. The new Virtual Reality VR Video workflows are very exciting and I can't wait to check them out. In the meanwhile don’t forget to check out ourVideoguys Top 10 Products for Adobe Editors!
What’s Coming Next in Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Media Encoder CC
Today we’re thrilled to be revealing what’s coming next to our professional video and audio desktop applications, with new features coming to Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Media Encoder,Adobe AuditionandAdobe After Effects. All of these new releases will be available to Creative Cloud members later this year, and will be demonstrated at the forthcoming NAB Show in Las Vegas.
NewMedia Managementfeatures in both Premiere Pro and Media Encoder give you much greater control over the handling of your files during the ingest process, and allow for more flexibility when working with very large media. You can set Premiere Pro to copy media to a specific location on your machine as it imports, and even begin editing immediately while your media copies in the background. If your workflow requires a transcode, you can easily set Premiere Pro or Media Encoder to handle that step for you too.
This release of Premiere Pro also brings support for more native formats than ever including 6K and 8K files from the RED Weapon camera. For times when the media you need to work with is heavier than your system can manage – for example, when you want to work on a lightweight portable device – you can nowgenerateproxies on ingest, automatically associating them with the native full-resolution media. A single click lets you toggle between full-res and proxy.
