AT IBC 2017 this week, Adobe announced forthcoming updates to the Adobe Creative Cloud. At the event, Adobe will showcase the updates that they have made in VR/360, animation, motion graphics, editing and collaboration.
Most of these features are powered by Adobe’s artificial intelligence and machine learning framework, Adobe Sensei, which was launched about a year ago.
Let's get into some of the updates that Adobe is adding to the Creative Cloud.
First, Adobe says that motion graphic templates in After Effects will be easier to access because now editors can pull templates right from Adobe Stock and through Creative Cloud Libraries.
Adobe’s Character Animator 1.0 is also getting an update. Adobe reports that there will be changes to its core animation functions, which include pose-to-pose blending, new physics behaviors and visual puppet controls. And Adobe’s AI, Sensei, is suppose to help improve lip-syncing by matching you character model’s mouth shapes with your spoken audio.
Premiere Pro is getting updates to its VR video creation capabilities. Users with be able to edit VR video with the new VR Comp Editor in After Effects, which makes 360 footage into flat rectilinear images. Adobe’s Immersive Environment in Premiere Pro lets you go through its timeline in a headmount display while still allowing you to perform editing operations like dynamic trimming or adding markers via the keyboard.
Team Projects, which was previously released in beta, will new be getting a full release in Creative Cloud. Team Projects is a program that looks to improve collaborative workflows on the Local Area Network. With the full version, Adobe says that it will offer even smoother workflows and allow for easier managed version that include auto-save history.
Adobe’s also adding flexible session organization and continuous playback during editing for Audition. Sensei will also automatically adjust levels with Auto-Ducking in the Essential Sound panel by type, which include dialogue, background sound or music.
Lastly, Adobe says it’s releasing hundreds of “professionally-created” motion graphic templates for Adobe Stock, which will be available later this year.
