A couple of days ago Adobe unveiled the latest advances in the Creative Cloud’s professional video and audio applications that soon will let creative professionals work with higher resolutions, higher dynamic range, and enhanced touch capabilities. In these upcoming releases of Creative Cloud video apps, for instance, users will get comprehensive native format support for footage up to 8K in Premiere Pro CC, with support for UltraHD and H.265, High Dynamic Range (HDR) workflows, improved colour fidelity, better colour management and integration between Premiere Pro CC and After Effects CC, touch screen features with Premiere Pro CC, After Effects CC and more.
Here is a sneak peek of the new functionalities you should expect.
Adobe Premiere Pro CC
Premiere Pro expands support for UltraHD and HDR formats with the inclusion of DNxHR, HEVC (H.265), and OpenEXR. Soon users will be able to edit and deliver video with resolutions up to and beyond 8K, with high dynamic ranges. Lumetri Color Panel will provide support for High Dynamic Range (HDR) for even more precise and enhanced colour management and control.
On top of that, GPU-accelerated Optical Flow interpolation for smoother slow motion and speed ramps, and frame-rate conversion will be also available along with basic touch support for Windows hybrid touch devices like Microsoft Surface Pro, and improved gestural support using Apple Force Touch trackpad.
Adobe After Effects CC
Adobe expands After Effects CC support for touch-enabled computers and smaller screens. Users will be able to pan compositions while adjusting composition properties and without halting playback through Uninterrupted Preview, now with more playback control for material with long per-frame render times.
The Lumetri Color settings will be easily transferred between Premiere Pro and After Effects. The platform will also provide support for ARRI RAW, Rec. 2020, and other UltraHD and HDR formats. Furthermore, multi-touch capabilities of Character Animator can be utilised to simultaneously animate movements of different parts of a character and more.
Adobe Media Encoder CC
Destination Publishing in Adobe Media Encoder CC will include support for Facebook to easily showcase and promote social media projects and campaigns. More 4K formats including HEVC (H.265), DNxHR, and XAVC Long GOP will also be added to the software along with the ability to render image sequences, including OpenEXR sequences, through automated workflows that launch when you drop sequences into Watch Folders.
Another useful feature is the implementation of the Automatic Loudness Correction tool that let users regulate the perceived loudness of audio to meet ITU and other broadcast standards. The same functionality can be also found in Premiere Pro and Audition.
There’s a planned webcast of an IBC Online event on September 15th, 9:00 am – 10:00 am PDT (UTC-07:00) where all these new features will be showcased. For more updates related to the other Creative Cloud, apps take a look at the Adobe’s Blog.
