What’s coming next in Adobe Story CC Plus

In the next update to Adobe Story CC Plus, the team has focused on implementing key features for Live Entertainment productions. We have worked closely with key partners in the industry to reflect recognized script elements for key production roles, while extending the unique value of the Story platform through scheduling, reporting, and collaboration. In addition to these enhancements, the team has improved the ability to customize elements in scripts and templates.

Let’s take a look at the new features:

Vision beats and bars are a new element used when you want to cue camera shots or other vision items using a piece of music. This element allows you to enter the number of beats and/or bars until the next cut or effect. The Vision beats and bars element appears on the left side of the script.

Sound Elements are used when you want to cue music or sound based on a script notation. The Sound elements contain a description field for the notations, and appear on the right side of the script. A solid vertical line is automatically drawn from a sound In-Point to the sound Out-Point.

Moving on to formatting, Story now supports multiple lines in the document Header and Footer. You can choose what fields to display in the left, center and right side of each row for header/footer as well as how many rows of text you want. You can even choose to enter free-form prefix text for each value.

You can also decide to add or remove element types in your script and can give them customized names to match the correct terminology for your production and your crew.

Camera cards can now be generated from shooting order script and from source scripts.

For European distribution, users can now capture AS-11 compliant metadata and export to the DPT XML format, which can be imported into the Digital Production Partnership (DPP) application for a streamlined broadcast workflow.

Adobe Story continues to grow as powerful platform both for script writing, and planning and managing on set production workflows.  As a Creative Cloud subscriber, you gain access to Story’s pro level features and integration with Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Adobe Prelude CC.  Make your next shoot easier—check out Adobe Story today!
