[ #adobe #CreativeCloud #NAB2016 ] Ahead of the NAB Show 2016 next week, Adobe has revealed new features across its Creative Cloud tools for...
Adobe Creative Cloud video tools are becoming the go-to source for film editors of both award-winning Hollywood and indie films. The most recent example is Deadpool, the 20th Century FOX blockbuster which shattered box office records. The post-production team from Deadpool will discuss their state-of-the-art workflows and why they chose Adobe Premiere Pro CC in a Creative Master Series panel at NAB on April 19 from 4:15–5 p.m. PT.
Upcoming productions using Premiere Pro CC include Mindhunter, David Fincher’s new series for Netflix, and 6 Below directed by Scott Waugh and starring Josh Hartnett, which is currently shooting in 6K RED and will be edited natively in Premiere Pro.
Creative Cloud video tools are also powering a new generation of content delivered via social channels like YouTube, Facebook and Instagram.
“The videos we make at RocketJump are pure entertainment,” said Freddie Wong, Founder of RocketJump, the hybrid studio/production company behind the popular RocketJump YouTube channel with nearly eight million subscribers and 1.3 billion views. “We’ve been users of Adobe’s Creative Cloud for years and love the new features coming soon. In addition to editing native footage in Premiere Pro and creating awesome visual effects in After Effects, we use Photoshop for graphics, Audition to sweeten audio, Media Encoder to export content, and now Creative Cloud Libraries to share assets.”
Character Animator’s new Motion Trigger behavior: Characters can switch between several states when moving in different directions. Track puppets to your face while you use your mouse and keyboard to select alternative states, such as a right or left profile.
Easier Puppet Tagging: Animate characters with the new puppet tag panel. Apply alternative facial, views, mouth and trigger behaviors directly within Character Animator.
Immerse Yourself in Creativity
Adobe continues to deliver technology that opens unimagined creative opportunities for video and film production, and now, immersive experiences. In the next release of Creative Cloud -- available in early summer -- Premiere Pro CC will add new virtual reality capabilities, including “field of view” mode for spherical stitched media. In addition, thanks to Adobe Stock integration into CC apps, customers are already experiencing productivity increases of 10 times, when adding stock content into creative projects, including video. In the upcoming release, Adobe Stock will have enhanced connections with CC apps and new workflows will enable Adobe Bridge and Lightroom users to contribute to the Adobe Stock marketplace directly from within the application.
Other coming Features for Adobe Creative Cloud 2016 include:
-Edit immediately during ingest allows Premiere Pro CC users to get straight to work, while importing their video and audio files in the background.
-Powerful proxy workflows in Premiere Pro CC and Adobe Media Encoder CC enable users to easily work with heavy 8K, HDR and HFR media, so editors can switch between native and proxy formats freely – even on lightweight machines.
-Enhanced Lumetri Color tools within Premiere Pro CC adds HSL Secondaries to expand the editor’s toolkit for making color correction and adjustment easier for all filmmakers.
-New video and audio preview engine in After Effects CC delivers superior playback of cached frames for a smooth experience.
-Easier and more efficient Character Animator includes a simplified puppet creation process that enables users to easily tag puppet layers easily and record multiple takes of a character’s movement. Users can animate puppets to respond to motion and trigger animation accordingly.
-New Essential Sound panel in Audition CC enables anyone to mix audio content with professional results.
-Quickly find Adobe Stock assets with new filtered search in Creative Cloud Libraries. Licensed assets in your library are now badged for easy identification, videos are displayed with duration and format information, and saved videos are linked to video previews on the Adobe Stock site.
Work faster with new performance improvements throughout the application: A new preview engine delivers superior playback of cached frames.
At NAB, Adobe is previewing the next major updates to Creative Cloud. These updates are expected to ship in the coming months. The company is offering Adobe Creative Cloud for US $49.99 a month.
