Adobe Releases New Features in Premiere Pro
On September 15th, Adobe released two new features available in Premiere Pro, previewed features entering public Beta in After Effects and Premiere Pro, and performance improvements for Premiere Pro, After Effects and Audition.
Simplifying workflows in Premiere Pro
The Premiere Pro team has been analyzing workflows from start to finish to identify areas that can be streamlined, always with the goal of accelerating editorial and simplifying tasks while ensuring the user retains full control over their content. Users can now take advantage of the following features:
- Scene Edit Detection allows editors to quickly find cuts in previously edited video, faster and more accurately, thanks to Adobe Sensei. The feature adds cuts and markers so that users can apply effects to individual shots and re-edit previously rendered content quickly and efficiently.
- HDR for Broadcasters enables users to produce programming in Rec2100 HLG HDR for modern HDR broadcasting, including automatic color conversion, HDR scope support, color space overrides for incorrect metadata, and full color management for Apple ProRes and Sony XAVC Intra formats.
- Quick Export (in public Beta) offers easy access to the most popular and frequently used export settings, right from the header bar in Premiere Pro. Editors can use the default high-quality H.264 output with matched Source Settings or choose from a short list of H.264 presets that allow you reduce the size of your export files.
Modernizing motion design in After Effects
Graphics artists rely on After Effects for motion design and working in 3D has become essential in producing compelling content for broadcast and advertisers, especially for things like product commercials that use both 2D and 3D design elements. To modernize the 3D experience, we’re currently testing the following After Effects features in public Beta:
- 3D Transform Gizmos help users navigate a scene faster and more intuitively. Scale, position, and rotate layers with helpful guides that shows how far a layer or object has been moved and how many degrees it has been rotated. Users can switch between gizmo modes to focus on a single task and make precision adjustments efficiently.
- Camera navigation tools are reimagined, giving artists an intuitive and flexible approach to navigate 3D spaces. The new default scene camera streamlines scene setup. Adding multiple cameras to a scene showcases various viewpoints and intuitively orbit, pan, and dolly around objects using customizable keyboard shortcuts.
Improving performance across the applications
- ProRes multicam performance in Premiere Pro can support up to 2x more streams, accelerating editing workflows with this widely used format.
- OpenEXR Previews for multi-part and multi-channel files are now up to 3x faster in After Effects (this improvement was included in the August performance update for After Effects)
- Faster Effects scanning for VST3 and Audio Unit (AU) plugins in Audition and Premiere Pro means faster launch times for users with third-party audio plugins. Effects scanning is up to 15x faster on macOS and up to 10x faster on Windows.
