NAB 2013 Sneak Peeks
Wow. Where to begin? NAB this year was one of the best shows I’ve attended in a long time. Attendance was up, great crowds at the Adobe booth, and the reactions to the sneak peeks were very very positive.
There are a lot of different videos showcasing what we showed at NAB here: http://tv.adobe.com/show/adobe-at-nab-2013/
Premiere Pro is adding so many new features, that some of my favorites have been overlooked:
1. It will now be possible for 3rd-party effects to be GPU-accelerated. Yep, for the first time, 3rd party effects can take full advantage of the Mercury Engine’s real-time performance. The engineering group is working with plug-in makers now to show them how it’s done. Can’t wait to see what comes from that.
2. Smart Rendering is now possible for many new formats. ProRes? Yup! DNxHD? Yup! Plus many more – including some added flavors of QuickTime. As soon as I have a full list of formats, I’ll post it. This is going to speed up a lot of renders by as much as 10 times, and will make the “Use Previews” function in final output render quicker too.
Those are just 2 examples of the multitude of new features coming soon – keep your eyes open for more examples coming soon.
