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 Audition and Adobe 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.
New Media Management features 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 now generate proxies on ingest, automatically associating them with the native full-resolution media. A single click lets you toggle between full-res and proxy.
New features in the Lumetri color panel and Lumetri scopes allow you to be more creative with color than ever. New HSL Secondaries allow for quick, intuitive selection of color ranges within a shot, getting the perfect nuance with a few clicks. And the entire collection of beautiful SpeedLooks linear looks help give your media instant personality. Support for color control surfaces like the Tangent Elements, Wave and Ripple enable even advanced colorists to feel right at home, and enhanced Lumetri scopes give instant feedback, with new control over brightness, improved resolution, and support for monitoring Rec2020 colorspace.
Responding to the enormous excitement around immersive video experiences, Premiere Pro offers powerful support for VR Video workflows. You can import equi-rectangular stitched video media and – with a click of a button in the monitors – enter VR Video mode, which allows you to use pan and tilt controls to preview the experience inside the sphere. You can even click-drag directly on the video clip and freely pan around so you know what your viewer would be seeing when looking in a given direction. When you’re ready to share, you can easily add a metadata flag to ensure you’ll get the full panoramic experience on supported sites like YouTube and Facebook.
Alongside the new media management, transcode and proxy generation capabilities listed above, Adobe Media Encoder contains multiple new features, including the addition of the familiar Media Browser, and a new Publish to Twitter feature for easy sharing with your followers.
There’s plenty more to come in the next release of Premiere Pro CC and Adobe Media Encoder CC and we’re eager to get them in your hands soon.
