An interview from the 2015 International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam with Al Mooney of Adobe Systems. Adobe Systems is a computer software company which has historically focused upon the creation of multimedia and creativity software products, with a more-recent foray towards rich Internet application software development. In this interview Al talks with us about Adobe's next wave of innovation coming soon to Creative Cloud, which among many updates includes expanded support for UltraHD (UHD), brilliant color technology improvements, and new touch workflows.

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.

After Effects, 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.

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.
