Adobe recently announced major updates for most of their Creative Cloud apps, including a number of new updates for Premiere Pro. As part of a preview Adobe revealed performance enhancements such as faster load times and improved support, as well as new features coming to their video and audio apps, such as “Roto Brush 2 in After Effects, Scene Edit Detection in Premiere Pro, and an Effects panel in Premiere Rush with new Auto Reframe and Pan and Zoom.”
Adobe Stock audio in Premiere Pro
Search — With thousands of high-quality royalty-free music tracks available, you never have to leave your editing space to find the right soundtrack for your stories. Search for suitable music based on mood, genre, tempo, and duration.
Preview — Use Timeline Sync to try different music tracks together with your edit. Built into the Essential Sound Panel, Timeline Sync allows you to test multiple music selections back-to-back, in sync with your edit in the timeline.
Edit — Build your story with the music, without distracting audio watermarks. You can complete an entire edit and mix with unwatermarked preview audio files. Only license the music you want to use, after you are completely satisfied with the result.
License — License music tracks directly inside the Essential Sound panel or from the Project panel. It’s as easy as a few clicks and you’re back to your edit. Licensed audio automatically replaces preview files with the high-quality version throughout your edit.
New features powered by Adobe Sensei coming soon
Scene Edit Detection in Premiere Pro will leverage Adobe Sensei to analyze exported or archived video files and identify edits with pinpoint accuracy. Unlike existing histogram-based solutions, the new technology in Premiere Pro was built with machine learning, helping users to save time by delivering consistently reliable results. Scene Edit Detection will automatically add cuts or markers at each edit point, turning rendered files into editable timelines and enabling per-clip adjustments, such as color correction or reframing.
Roto Brush 2 in After Effects will make rotoscoping a practical option for more users. Originally introduced as Project Fast Mask, Roto Brush 2 uses Adobe Sensei machine learning algorithms to generate more accurate mattes when separating foreground and background elements in video sequences. Paint over the object you want to isolate in a reference frame, including edge refinements for hair or other textures. Powered by Adobe Sensei, Roto Brush 2 will track the object automatically, following its motion so you can avoid time-consuming manual frame-by-frame rotoscoping.
Auto Reframe in Premiere Rush will intelligently identify the actions in your video and keep the most important part of your shot in the frame when switching between different aspect ratios. Powered by Adobe Sensei and first introduced in Premiere Pro, Auto Reframe will enable you to reformat content for social media channels no matter what device you are working on, including your phone.
Future releases of Premiere Rush will offer a new Effects panel, including Auto Reframe, transitions, and Pan and Zoom, another motion effect currently in development. Pan and Zoom will allow the user to pan across still images and zoom in or out, adding new options for visual storytelling.
