Major Video and Audio Updates to Adobe Creative Cloud Available Now

Just last month, Adobe revealed a number of updates to the Creative Cloud. Now at Adobe MAX, Adobe has released those updates and more with the next generation of Adobe Creative Cloud. Those updates aim add more features to the Creative Cloud to enhance video and audio function, speed up workflows and improve collaboration between editors.

Premiere Pro CC’s new Team Projects allows you to view your personal auto-save history and bring an asset from a previous auto-save into your current project version or create a new Team Project from a past auto-save. Also new with Premiere Pro CC is Multiple Open Projects, which Adobe says lets you work on multiple projects simultaneously without having to open and close them individually.

In addition, when working in Premiere Pro CC with other editors on a single project simultaneously, its new Shared Projects feature will lock a project while it’s being worked on. If you’re working on a project, the project will prevent any other editors from overriding your edits and will assign a read-only access.

Adobe says that they have now updated After Effect CC to be able to make 360 video footage into flat rectilinear images with its new VR Comp Editor. Other 360 features added to After Effect CC include Extract Cubemaps, which is supposed to simplify motion tracking and object removal in 360, and VR Converter, which Adobe says lets you “switch on-the-fly” between different immersive formats so you can ensure your final content will play well on any platform.” There’s also new effects that you can add to your 360 footage, including VR Blur, VR Glow, VR Sharpen, VR De-noise, VR Chromatic Aberration, VR Color Gradients, VR Digital Glitch and VR Fractal Noise.

Audition CC is also getting a few big updates that Adobe believes will make audio editing much easier. One of the key updates to Audition CC is auto-ducking. This feature is powered by Adobe’s AI Sensei, and what it essentially does is create volume keyframes for you by analyzing the surrounding clips for their loudness in relation to the clip you selected. However, if you don’t want the ducking tool doing all the work for you, Adobe says that you can set it to do 90 percent of the work for you and then manually adjust fades for adjustments to your liking. Also new, Adobe reports that clips in Auditions CC will now retain their position when you stack them on top of each other.

Now officially out of Beta, Adobe says that Character Animator CC now allows for custom-named triggers that can reference layers in different groups. You can see these triggers listed in the Triggers panel and you can assign a key frame to one of the triggers and see the list of the layers that are controlled by the trigger.

Character’s Animator’s new pose-to-pose seems to let you capture a more classic hand animated-look, where characters hold a pose for a few seconds before moving when use your live performances to animate your character.

Adobe reports that Character Animator now uses Adobe Sensei when lip syncing spoken audio to mouth shapes. Sensei is supposed to be able to accurately pick the right mouth shapes for your recorded audio for more convincing synced dialogue.

These RE just a few of the updates Adobe has added to the Creative Cloud. If you want to see more of what Adobe is adding, check out Adobe’s press release about the updates.
