It’s been a very busy few months for Adobe, which converted its entire Creative Suite software portfolio to the SaaS-modeled Creative Cloud in May and shipped the much-anticipated Adobe Anywhere collaboration platform in July. Both products are now in full swing, and Adobe took to the IBC floor to highlight enhancements to both Creative Cloud and Adobe Anywhere.
Enhancements to Creative Cloud (Premiere Pro, After Effects, SpeedGrade, Prelude, Media Encoder, and Story Plus) unveiled at IBC include a new Direct Link Color Pipeline between Adobe Premiere Pro CC and SpeedGrade CC; expanded native support for 4K and higher resolutions, high frame rates, and RAW formats; and a streamlined editing workflow in Premier Pro.
On the Adobe Anywhere side, the company announced support for Adobe After Effects (previously the platform centered solely on Premier Pro and Prelude integration), expanded file support, and complimentary new iPad app that allows uses to view productions and play back sequences on the Anywhere server from a remote location.
SVG sat down with Adobe Anywhere Senior Product Manager Michael Coleman and Premier Pro Product Manager Al Mooney to discuss Adobe’s ascent into the world of the cloud and what that strategy means for the sports-production world.
How do the latest updates to Adobe Anywhere benefit users?
Coleman: In July, we shipped version one of Adobe Anywhere. At that time, we were just showing how easy it was to collaborate between an editor and a logger — Premier Pro and Prelude — but we were talking about a bigger vision overall. Now, here at IBC, we are proving that it is more of a full platform. There are more people involved in the workflow than just editors and loggers. You can’t make great video without everyone involved; you have graphics people and producers. So, with After Effects now being supported in Anywhere, you have more of the picture filled out. And with the iPad app, you can access the same video and sequences that your editor is working on instantly. read more...
