Adobe announced updates to Creative Cloud's video apps, adding new productivity enhancers like advanced timeline searching, multi-project workflows, and the much requested Consolidate and Transcode to its pro video apps.

With over 2.3 million new Creative Cloud members as of Q2 2014, these updates mark over 600 since Creative Cloud began. Premiere Pro CC has notably been used for post-production on David Fincher's latest film, edited by Kirk Baxter ACE who added "I'm happy to see so many of the new features we asked Adobe for during 'Gone Girl' in the upcoming release." Yeah, me too.

Premiere Pro CC sees the majority of the updates in this release, with the addition of new searching and management features. Search Bins dynamically create bins, updating automatically as you add new content or taking advantage of Advanced Timeline Search capabilities.

Consolidate and Transcode will allow for more control over media in projects and sequences, with more flexibility for gathering, working with, or archiving media. Users can move all relevant files in projects to reduce the project size – all content is rendered into a single selected codec and a newer more compact project is created.

With new multi-project workflows, users can open media and sequences from other projects and bring clips, edits, transitions, or graphics into the current projects. Users can open multiple Media Browser panels for easy access to all the projects needed.

Enhanced masking and tracking makes for quicker, more accurate tracks that can be moved to After Effects for refinement. Feathering masks can be done directly in the Program window, or use the free-draw polygon tool to create complex mask shapes. Render and replace will speed up performance of sequences with heavy use of After Effects compositions, flattening the comps into video clips – though with Dynamic Link, those original comps remain available.

And support for GoPro Cineform and AJA RAW was added, with GPU enhanced debayering support for Canon RAW and Phantom Cine, allowing for native support for up to 6K media and beyond.

Among the other Creative Cloud apps, After Effects has an enhanced Live 3D Pipeline for working faster with 3D elements; Speedgrade, which will now support Blackmagic video cards, features a new hover-to-preview-looks for saving time time, and adding curve adjustments is now as easy as adding and dragging points; Media Encoder's new Destination Publishing allows a user to set up rendering and delivering work with one preset; Audition has added new video codec support; and both Story and Prelude have usability enhancement updates. All the apps will now feature a cleaner user interface with support for HiDPI Windows 8.1 and Mac Retina displays.

"As the video and broadcast industries continue to rapidly evolve, so too does Adobe's video technology. With Creative Cloud, we have accelerated the rate at which we deliver the features our customers need to create compelling new experiences and transform the video industry with high-quality productions," said Bill Roberts, senior director of professional video product management for Adobe.

While they're not exactly the sexiest set of new features ever to read about in an article, these are long-standing feature requests that editors have been pining for, especially in Premiere CC. They're the kind of updates that get your work done quicker so you hit your deadlines – or more importantly, get you home at a reasonable hour

These Creative Cloud updates will be available for download soon. Adobe will be showcasing these new features at IBC in Amsterdam September 12-16.

Reimagining Terminator 2's HUDs and Graphics with Adobe XD

Reimagining Terminator 2's HUDs and Graphics with Adobe XD

What looked futuristic for heads-up displays and graphic overlays just a few years ago looks primitive today, which inspired the designers at Territory Studio (responsible for HUD and screen design in Avengers: Infinity War, Blade Runner 2049, The Martian, Guardians of the Galaxy and many more) to ask themselves about new approaches to the future of interface design. The decision to try Adobe XD surprised them, and surprised Adobe too! These kinds of intensely futuristic designs are far from the web and mobile app prototyping that XD was first intended for, but the challenge was too intriguing to pass up. Creative COW Contributing Editor Hillary Lewis takes a look at Territory's creative process, and what it might mean for both moviegoers and software developers in the future.
