Adobe announced major improvements to Premiere Pro CC. The upcoming release offers in app color grading as well as the ability to remove jump cuts. That’s right, no more jump cuts. At Adobe Max 2014, we saw this little gem first hand, and it’s truly amazing. Here are just some of the new features you can expect from the upcoming release of Adobe Premiere CC.
What’s coming to Adobe Premiere Pro CC
Adobe Premiere Pro CC gives editors all-new tools to creatively work with color within their NLE. The next version of Premiere Pro makes it easy to deliver more polished interview sequences by automatically smoothing jump cuts between talking-head shots. And Creative Cloud Libraries provide a fast new way of accessing assets within your Adobe applications and sharing them with your creative team.
Replace distracting talking-head jump cuts with smooth transitions. Morph Cut uses advanced face tracking and frame interpolation to build seamless interview sequences that you wouldn’t have thought possible before now. With Morph Cut, you cut away to b-roll only when it helps your story, not just to hide a head move.
New Color Workspace with Lumetri Color panel
Work with integrated creative tools to manipulate color and light in new and innovative ways, through every stage of the editing process, without leaving Premiere Pro. Combining the 32-bit floating-point color science of SpeedGrade CC with Adobe Lightroom functionality and ease-of-use, the Lumetri Color Panel provides a color toolset and workflow unavailable in any other editing application. Make simple color corrections or beautiful Looks using familiar sliders and controls. Color becomes an organic part of your editing. And if you want to collaborate with a colorist, or extend your own workflow, use Direct Link to move your Premiere Pro project into SpeedGrade.
Creative Cloud Libraries in Premiere Pro
Share assets between Adobe applications, projects, and team members for instant access and better collaboration. Keep graphic files, text styles, and Looks at your finger tips through Creative Cloud Libraries panel, now integrated into Premiere Pro and other Adobe applications. Capture a Look in Project Candy or develop a graphic in Photoshop and then access those files directly within Premiere Pro. Create and share Creative Cloud Libraries with your team for seamless collaboration and consistency in your productions.
Mobile-to-desktop workflow with Premiere Clip
Capture and assemble video on the go with Adobe Premiere Clip on your mobile phone or tablet. Open the project in Premiere Pro when you need the full feature set of the desktop editing environment. Now edits, music cues, and Looks set in Premiere Clip all open on your Premiere Pro timeline. The result is a seamless mobile-to-desktop video workflow.
Organize, access, and view the tools you want, how and when you want them. Toggle between preset and custom workspace layouts that configure interface panels and tools for the different parts of your workflow, including editing, color, audio, and effects. When working on touch-based Windows devices, switch workspaces with a finger tap and set panel tabs to larger size for easier touch. Keep your Premiere Pro interface clean while still having easy access to all of your tasks and tools.
Expanded format support
Edit even more video and digital cinema formats natively in Premiere Pro with new support for Apple ProRes 4444 XQ, Avid DNxHR with compressed alpha, Canon XF-AVC, MXF-wrapped JPEG 2000, and Panasonic 4K_HS. Premiere Pro leads the industry with native format workflows so you can work without time-consuming format conversion, preserving quality and avoiding added storage requirements.
Improved audio workflow
Leverage the full power of the Premiere Pro audio tools through faster configuration for voiceover recording, better audio channel routing, expanded multichannel audio export options, a more consistent hardware setup, and improved integration with Adobe Audition. Spend less time on settings and more time on your audio.
New editing refinements
Enhance editing efficiency through simpler approaches to common tasks. Fine-tune clips through a new composite trim preview. Use new keyboard shortcuts to adjust hot text values and create subsequences. View Source Settings as Master Clip effects; easily adjust settings and see the changes apply across all related clips. Improve workflows with digital audio workstations through AAF video mixdown and significantly improved AAF export. These and other refinements let you work with more fluidity and less friction so you can focus on crafting your story.
