NAB 2016: Adobe's Updated Premiere Pro, After Effects & More

With Adobe’s continuing rise in the post production world, it’s hard to ignore their prevalance and power. So we stopped to speak with Adobe’s Steve Forde on their sweeping updates, their continued success in Hollywood (Deadpool anyone?) and more.

Premiere Pro

Make visually stunning videos virtually anywhere – With the industry-leading video production toolset, you can work across desktop and devices to edit virtually any type of media in its native format and create professional productions with brilliant color for film, TV and web.
Premiere Pro, now with CreativeSync – Premiere Pro is part of Creative Cloud and comes with Adobe CreativeSync, so your assets are always at your fingertips right when you need them. CreativeSync powers your Creative Cloud Libraries and Adobe Stock, and it connects your mobile and desktop apps.
Other features include:

  • Apply everything from quick color corrections to complex Lumetri Looks using an intuitive color workspace.
  • Skip transcoding and edit virtually any type of media, from smartphone video to 8K footage, thanks to broad native format support.
