It’s that time of year again and we know you’re wondering what we have up our sleeves for all you video pros. Well, as of today, we can start telling you.
The next version of Adobe video tools has been developed with features created in direct response to the needs of filmmakers, broadcasters and video professionals. In fact, the multiple Academy Award® winning Coen brothers have been working directly with the Adobe Premiere Pro product team and are switching to Premiere Pro in preparation for their next feature film slated for late 2013.
But it’s not just high-profile users, like the Coens, Philip Bloom, Bill Yukich, or the Saturday Night Live film unit. We’ve been working with all of you and we love getting your feedback! From countless conversations with our users, we know you want:
- new features that give you more creative scope
- expanded integration, so you can move between applications more easily
- workflow refinements within your favorite applications, so that you can deliver great work, faster than ever before
We heard you loud and clear, and that’s exactly what we’ll be delivering, with innovations like the new Refine Edge tool in Adobe After Effects, the incredible Sound Remover in Adobe Audition, super-easy metadata templates in Adobe Prelude, Shot Matcher in Adobe SpeedGrade, and, of course, Adobe Premiere Pro with Editing Finesse, Link & Locate, Audio Clip Mixer, closed captioning support, and so much more. Those are just a few of the hundreds of new features we’ll be introducing.
While we can’t announce the release date just yet, there is a great way to get to the front of the line. If you join Adobe Creative Cloud now, you will immediately receive the entire stable of currently shipping Adobe CS6 applications (that’s a whole lot of creative horsepower) and you will automatically receive the new versions of all your favorite Adobe software as soon as they are available.

There was no better place for the Adobe video team to be in late January than Park City, Utah – home to the Sundance Film Festival. Sundance is the largest and, arguably, the most important annual event for independent film in the United States. Over the last few years numerous films, including Precious, Winter’s Bone, and Beasts of the Southern Wild, which premiered at Sundance, have gone on to receive nominations for Best Picture at the Academy Awards. In addition to film, technology is a large topic of conversation at Sundance – filmmakers, aspiring hopefuls and enthusiasts alike share their opinions and preferences regarding the tools they’re using to produce their creative work.
Sundance 2013 was, once again, a huge success for the Adobe video team. There was strong Adobe presence all over the festival and numerous films in the festival were cut exclusively with Adobe video tools (through Creative Cloud!). Creative and technology panels boasted the strengths of Adobe video products and partnerships and festival attendees and filmmakers were proud to make known their plans to switch to Adobe Premiere Pro, if they haven’t done so already.
To learn more about everything Adobe at the Sundance Film Festival check out the videos created on the ground in Park City during the festival – they’ve already garnered over 8,500 views on Adobe TV!

The video team is proud to partner with the Sundance Film Festival again in 2013. Many films across the festival incorporated Adobe tools into their workflows but the most exciting news from the festival this year was the four films in the festival that were cut exclusively using Premiere Pro [C.O.G, We Are What We Are, Feral and When Zombies Come]. Two of those production teams couldn’t say enough about the benefits of Adobe Creative Cloud membership to their independent filmmaking process. Through their Creative Cloud memberships they used Adobe creative tools for everything from sharing creative inspiration with Adobe Ideas, to cutting, scoring and creating motion graphics for their films with Premiere Pro, After Effects and Audition, to creating and sharing promotional materials like posters and flyers using Photoshop, InDesign and Acrobat.
In addition to the exciting news from the filmmaking side of Sundance, Adobe also has great presence around Park City as part of the festival. The Adobe panel, “From Script to Screen, the Fusion of Technology and Storytelling in Film” features three luminary Adobe video customers- Tyler Nelson [Assistant Editor – House of Cards, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Social Network], Bill Yukich [Commercial/music video editor - Coca–Cola, Volvo, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Adam Lambert] and Bayan Joonam [Head of Production at SoulPancake, actor Rainn Wilson's production company]. Adobe is also hosting a space in the Filmmakers Co-op where festival attendees are able to sign up for Free Creative Cloud memberships and learn all the great features of Adobe Creative Cloud, Premiere Pro and all the Adobe video tools.
Adobe continues to strengthen our partnerships with HP and RED. Premiere Pro Product Manager, Al Mooney, joined representatives from HP and RED as part of the HP Panel, “4K and Beyond: The evolving role of technology in digital filmmaking”. And HP will host the Main St. Sundance House where numerous HP systems were loaded with Adobe Creative Cloud and filmmakers could come, learn more about Adobe software and print out high quality copies of their marketing materials to aid them in building buzz around their films throughout bustling Park City.
2013 is going to be a huge year for the Adobe video team and Sundance is the perfect place to kick off all the great things to come! Stay tuned to Premiere Pro’s Facebook and Twitter accounts for interviews and updates from the festival.
