Adobe President and Chief Executive Officer Shantanu Narayen welcomes attendees to Adobe MAX on Monday, Oct. 6, 2014 in Los Angeles.

Adobe this week released updates for their suite of video applications. The 2014.2 update includes Premiere Pro CC, Media Encoder CC, After Effects CC, SpeedGrade CC, Prelude CC, Audition CC, and Story CC. Each update includes enhancements and even tighter integration between complementary applications.

Of the updates, perhaps the most impressive of the lot is the Adobe Media Encoder CC update, which now features something called Destination Publishing, a simple integrated tool for sharing video to YouTube and Vimeo. Additionally, Media Encoder features updates to Vimeo and GoPro CineForm presets, the ability to export audio channels as separate WAV files, an option to append preset names to output file names automatically, among other features.

Premiere Pro CC 2014.2 has been updated to include features such as support for ARRI Open Gate media, improved GoPro CineForm export, and the ability to set transitions and default still image durations in either seconds or frames. For Windows machines, GoPro CineForm and Quicktime codecs can be used as sequence preview file formats.

Motion graphic designers will be pleased to hear that After Effects CC has been improved based on the cries of the users. The UI has been tweaked for easier use, including making keyframe icons brighter. Text control through scripts and expressions has also been improved.

With every major update we have come to expect fun new ways to use Adobe’s key applications.
