In the past few months, the engineers working on Adobe Story CC have been pretty busy. In our June release, we added features like Vision beats and bars, Sound elements, Script On-Air Time, and the Ability to rename/add/delete element types from a template. The Fall release of Story is another update to bring just a little more customization to the script format, and better efficiency when adding Shots for camera direction.
The first thing is what we’re calling Text Box Customization. When users have sticky notes or additional info they want to add into a script, you can change the font size and style to enhance the visibility of the notes. Users also have the ability to add borders around the boxes as well as the ability to change font attributes. These new features ensure that the production crew sees your notes and never misses critical information.
Using Custom Shot Number, you can now add one or multiple shots to a script using a custom number, like 200, and have subsequent shots auto-increment from that anchor point. This allows shots to be assigned to scenes as the notes come in from the director without worrying about the order that the notes arrive in.
The beauty about Creative Cloud is it gives Adobe the ability to constantly update our applications—fix what doesn’t work and make what works even better. You can see this happening in Adobe Premiere Pro with its project and media management enhancements and in Adobe Prelude where logging metadata is now even easier. Plus your content is easier to focus on with a refreshed user-interface across all our video applications which includes support for HiDPI displays for both Mac and Window.
