Storytelling with Smarter Tools

First off, we have “Storytelling with Smarter Tools”. This is Adobe’s high-level blog post on the major features and trends coming in the next major release of Creative Cloud. As you can probably imagine, Adobe’s tools are becoming smarter more integrated throughout their professional video and audio applications. The end-game is all about streamlining workflows so video creators can focus more on storytelling.

With smarter tools and flexible, connected workflows, Adobe gives you everything you need to turn your ideas into stories and bring them to the screen. —Adobe

This post also features Adobe’s newest addition to the family: Project Rush, an all-in-one cross-device editing app, specifically intended for online video creators. Rush shares the same core technology as Premiere Pro, After Effects and Audition, giving users the power to create professional video content on the go. The Rush beta program is by invitation only. You can apply here. Read our blog post to learn more about Project Rush.

Accompanying the blog post is a video that visualizes all the upcoming innovations in the next Creative Cloud release. The video features Adobe master trainer, Christine Steele of Steele Pictures, who is no stranger to the Adobe Stage at NAB Show and IBC.

This release - coming soon - introduces new tools that accelerate motion graphics workflows, audio cleanup, color grading, character animation, 180 VR, and overall performance across applications. —Adobe

 

Creative Editorial with Faster Workflows

Not the most specific title for a major Premiere Pro release announcement. But it’s accurate!

In this blog post, Sr. Product Manager, Patrick Palmer introduces the headlining new features coming soon to Premiere Pro CC. Including:

  • Selective color grading with brand new Hue Saturation curves in the Lumetri Color panel.

  • Intelligent audio cleanup effects like the upgraded DeNoise and all-new DeReverb effects, both integrated in the Essential Sound panel.

  • Data-drive infographics using spreadsheets in Motion Graphics templates created in After Effects.

  • End-to-end workflows for VR180. Edit, add effects, and publish VR180 content natively in Premiere Pro.

All of the features listed have their own short preview video to give your eyeballs a taste of what’s coming. Adobe always combines their preview videos from all the apps into one bloated playlist. But we only want to see the Premiere Pro previews, amirite?! We’ve reduced the official IBC 2018 Adobe playlist to just the Premiere Pro videos in our own custom playlist.

Alongside the new selective color grading and intelligent audio cleanup tools, stability and performance is a major focus in the next release of Premiere Pro CC. This focus is a continuation of the last patch update v12.1.2.

Building on new hardware acceleration from the Premiere Pro 12.1.2 update, the next release will offer new performance improvements… —Adobe

It’s encouraging to see Adobe treating performance and stability as equals to the new color, audio, and motion graphics tools.

REMINDER: Changes in OS Support for Mac and Windows

Now is a good time to remind Premiere Pro users that future versions of Premiere Pro CC, beginning with CC 2019, will require Windows 10 (version 1703, or higher) or macOS 10.12 (or higher) to run. So, if you want the new color curves and audio repair tools, you will need to make sure your OS is compatible. Don’t wait till release day, start planning now!
