With Adobe Creative Cloud®, the world’s best creative tools constantly evolve to meet the changing needs of video creators and artists. Today, we are excited to announce our next wave of innovation coming soon to Creative Cloud, which includes expanded support for UltraHD (UHD), brilliant color technology improvements, and new touch workflows.

These advances will be showcased Sept. 11-15 at IBC 2015, Europe’s largest professional broadcast show, in Amsterdam. At IBC, Adobe will also demonstrate growing industry momentum, as customers continue to make the switch to Creative Cloud and Premiere Pro CC workflows. These include film Deadpool from 20th Century Fox, coming Februray 12, 2016; Staten Island Summer from Paramount Pictures, edited by Adam Epstein; and award-winning motion picture colorist Dado Valentic who has worked on 60 feature films, hundreds of commercials, and actively engages with fashion industry clients to develop everything from online brand videos to billboards.

Join our IBC 2015 online event on Sept 15th, shot live on the IBC show floor to see demos of these top features coming soon to the Adobe video tools, along with Siân Fever, freelance editor for MTV and BBC, as she walks us through her workflow with Creative Cloud tools like Premiere Pro.  Watch the presentations and chat live with members of the Adobe Team – register today.

In these upcoming releases of Creative Cloud video apps, you’ll get:

Exceptional UltraHD, HDR, and touch integration—Work with UltraHD (UHD) 4K and 8K media and beyond, and high dynamic range (HDR) files across Creative Cloud applications and throughout your creative pipeline. Maintain color fidelity between Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Adobe After Effects CC with the Lumetri effect now also in After Effects. Plus, navigate panels and workspaces with touch and speed your work with gestures on your Microsoft Surface Pro, Windows 8 tablet or Apple track pad.

Creative assets everywhere you work—Access your project or personal assets wherever you are through Adobe CreativeSync technology. Share images, color Looks, and more between Creative Cloud desktop tools including Photoshop and Illustrator, and with mobile apps such as Adobe Hue CC and Shape CC. Drag assets straight from the Creative Cloud Libraries panel inside After Effects and drop them into the Composition panel. Creative Cloud lets you access and apply assets to your projects without interrupting your creative process.

Vibrant world-class marketplace—Search, try out, and license any of the 45-million high-quality royalty-free images through the Adobe Stock service built into the Libraries panels in Premiere Pro and After Effects.

“Color is now everyone’s responsibility in production. Feature updates in Adobe Premiere Pro CC, such as Lumetri Looks, enable filmmakers and editors to control the look of a project throughout the production process, from the initial script to the end, ultimately giving them more creative control. I look forward to what’s coming next in Creative Cloud,” said Dado Valentic, Founder and Chief Colorist at Mytherapy.

“Adobe is refining our workflows to more easily use fantastic image quality and high dynamic range as creative tools. The ability to move the viewer with HDR imagery will be at our users’ fingertips,” said Bill Roberts, Senior Director of professional video product management, Adobe. “We are in a truly exciting age where the consumption experience is changing – we need to deliver tools that empower creative to take advantage of what is coming.”

Adobe Premiere Pro CC
Having set the standard for the best native file format support in the industry, Premiere Pro expands support for UltraHD and HDR formats with the inclusion of DNxHR, HEVC (H.265), and OpenEXR. Edit and deliver video with resolutions up to and beyond 8K, with high dynamic ranges that capture and preserve details like shadows and highlights. Plus, apply color corrections and create sophisticated Looks with the powerful and accessible Lumetri Color panel in Premiere Pro. This makes working with color and light an integral part of your creative process.
Use multi-touch devices to augment a powerful keyboard-driven workflow. Tasks like building a cut, scrubbing media, marking in and out points, dragging and dropping clips onto a timeline, and making edits can all be done with simple gestures. Pinch to zoom in and out of the Timeline and Monitor panels, and drag to scroll through all workspace panels. Control Premiere Pro through touch with Microsoft Surface Pro and Windows, and with Apple trackpads.

Generate exceptionally smooth slow-motion and speed-ramp effects, as well as high-quality frame rate conversions through GPU-accelerated Optical Flow frame interpolation technology.

After Effects CC
The industry-standard for motion graphics and visual effects has expanded its support for touch-enabled computers and smaller screens. Use your fingers to control After Effects workspaces. Pan compositions while adjusting composition properties and without halting playback through Uninterrupted Preview, now with more playback control for material with long per-frame render times.

Maintain color fidelity between After Effects and Premiere Pro; the Lumetri Color settings you make in Premiere Pro carry over to After Effects. Keep pace with rapidly developing color workflows through deeper support for ARRI RAW, Rec. 2020, and other UltraHD and HDR formats.

In Character Animator, when working on touchscreen displays, use multi-touch to simultaneously animate movements of different parts of a character, such as left and right arms. Character Animator will also soon be available in French, German and Japanese.
