What Adobe’s 2016 Update Means for Video EditorsRocketstock.com by Caleb Ward Adobe’s new updates have huge implications for video editors. Here’s what you need to know. Every year at NAB, Adobe releases a few really big updates for their lines of video editing software. Last year’s big update was the Lumetri color panel in Premiere. This year, however, Adobe has diversified their video offering with a lot of interesting video updates that will likely get a lot of video professionals excited. Here’s a few updates that you should know about:
1. You Don’t Have to Make Proxies By HandIf you’re not already familiar with the term, a proxy is a low-resolution copy of your source footage that can easily be edited on your machine. After you’ve edited your sequence with the low-res proxy, you can replace it with the original file once you’re done. Up until this point, creating low-res proxies in Premiere Pro was kind of a pain. Essentially the workflow went something like this:
- Import your original footage.
- Export copies of each clip in media encoder.
- Edit your proxy clips.
- Offline your proxy clips.
- Replace the proxy clips with the originals.
- Export your footage.
