Adobe Showcases Expanded Camera to Cloud Features at IBC 2022

From viewing real-time speech to text, automatic color correction, and adding timed music, to even first-pass visual effects Adobe is showcasing a massive expansion of the capabilities of Camera to Cloud, which is rapidly cutting short the time needed for post-production.

“When work happens in parallel, the whole creative process is elevated,” writes the Adobe Blog. “Instead of sequential, compartmentalized steps, production becomes fluid, efficient, and inherently collaborative.”

C2C through Frame.io enables Adobe customers to upload camera files into the post-production pipeline while the production is still taking place, allowing artists to begin the post process concurrently, and making real-time viewing of scenes as they will end up so they can be approved and locked in.

The August 2022 release to Adobe After Effects includes the Keyframe Color Label, Properties Panel (Beta), Selectable Track Matte Layers (Beta), Native H.264 Encoding (Beta), and refreshed Animation and Compositions presets (Beta). It also offers several stability and performance fixes in After Effects.

Through this new update, video professionals can now use motion graphics templates in Premiere Pro to create dailies with more elements that would normally use “place holder” clips while the visual effects were being done later in the post.

And with Team Projects, editors in Premiere Pro, and After Effects, artists can now work together on the same project files to produce them.

Adobe has also improved the performance of rendering in AE, with 4x faster rendering using multi-frame architecture and native support through Apple Silicon.

Adobe has also listened to users and added a 3D Extended Viewer and keyframe color labels to more easily identify key parts of a 3D animation.

Adding the first steps of the visual effects pipeline to Camera to Cloud means that film productions can reshoot or even reimagine shots while all elements are initially in place, trying new things, and seeing a more polished project in real-time.

Adobe is also improving Premiere Pro’s audio ducking feature, making it easier to reduce sounds to make it much easier for the audience to hear dialogue within a scene’s natural, ambient circumstances.

By further integrating Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects, Frame.io is on equal footing in the Creative Cloud ecosystem, providing super-fast file sharing and real-time review of project files.

“Media is now available in the place each user needs it to be, whether that’s on a smartphone or a high-end workstation, regardless of their physical location,” the Adobe Blog declares.

Adobe is also expanding its video ecosystem with over 100 video partners exhibiting deep integration through Drame.io, providing what the company says are “the tools you need for a cloud-savvy workflow.”

Users can see presentations on the expanded workflows from VFX supervisor and creative director Peter Eszenyi (Blade Runner 2049, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Martian, and The Avengers) and Tom Frenette, lead videographer and editor for the Golden State Warriors, and others.

In addition, Adobe has forged new partnerships with companies including Mo-Sys, providing expansion of virtual production and camera robotics workflows. Camera to Cloud working as a pipeline for virtual workflows and production is bound to provide project files to collaborative artists in every segment of production, anywhere in the world.

And Camera to Cloud is bound to get even more powerful as it expands. Soon, it won’t be production and post-production. It’ll just be production. Adobe and Frame.io will be showcasing these new partnerships, plus expansion with partners Teradek and Atomos, in Hall 7, Stand 7.B35 at the RAI Amsterdam from September 9-12, 2022.
