As video production workflows and requirements are constantly changing and evolving, so is Creative Cloud, with regular feature-rich releases which allow creative people to stay at the very cutting edge. Today, we are extremely excited to be able to reveal the next major update of Premiere Pro CC, which accompanies reveals of all other Adobe video and audio products, including Prelude, After Effects, Speedgrade, Media Encoder, and Audition. The update will be available to Creative Cloud subscribers in the coming months.
The next release of Premiere Pro CC brings multiple features and performance enhancements designed to allow editors to work fluidly with the highest resolution media, achieving brilliant results faster than ever before, without leaving their editing environment.
Live Text Templates allow Premiere editors to work with After Effects comps containing text (such as lower thirds) making changes to the text without ever having to leave Premiere Pro. All animation and effects from After Effects remain in place, with only unlocked text fields being edited.
Also, editors increasingly need to be able to create masks and track them, often so that they can easily blur out a moving portion of a frame, like a face or license plate. This release brings full feathered Masking and Tracking capabilities to all effects in Premiere Pro, allowing editors to quickly place an effect mask over a portion of a frame, track it, and feather it. When more finesse is required, simply jump into After Effects for greater control.
Premiere Pro’s rich support for workflows in 5K and beyond is further enhanced, with new native support for CanonRAW and Sony SStP media. Enhanced CinemaDNG support (including Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, Convergent Design Odyssey7Q, and CinemaDNG source settings), and a powerful new workflow for the ARRI AMIRA camera, where appropriate LUTs are applied on ingest at the master clip level are also available. Editors working with RED media will benefit greatly from the ability to debayer on a supported GPU, providing amazing playback performance up to full-resolution real-time playback on a workstation-class system.
The all-new Master Clip Effects feature provides a brand new, extremely powerful effects workflow. Any effect can now be added to a Master Clip, and any adjustments made at the Master Clip level will ripple down through to all clip instances used within sequences, allowing rapid changes to entire scenes.
The Premiere Pro team continues to pride itself on engaging with the editing community and solving modern workflow problems in powerful new ways. We’re thrilled to be able bring you these amazing new features soon.
