About

An interview from the 2017 International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam with Patrick Palmer of Adobe. Adobe Systems is a computer software company which has historically focused upon the creation of multimedia and creativity software products, such as Creative Cloud which gives you all of the Adobe video tools, along with industry-leading design, web, and photography apps. In this interview Patrick talks with us about advancements to its industry-leading Adobe Creative Cloud video tools and services to help filmmakers and video professionals create standout content.

In April 2017, Motion Graphics templates were introduced, bringing the power of After Effects to Premiere Pro through easy-to-use templates. Editors wanting to work with dynamic, professional graphics or graphics packages created in After Effects, such as titles, lower thirds, bumpers and closing credits, will soon be able to access Motion Graphics templates right in Adobe Stock and through Creative Cloud Libraries. In addition, Adobe has made usability improvements to the Essential Graphics panel in Premiere Pro, including Responsive Design options for preserving spatial and temporal relationships.

With the release of Project Locking in Premiere Pro, Adobe has improved collaborative workflows on the Local Area Network with managed access features that allow users to lock projects and provide read-only access to others. Formerly in beta, the Team Projects service will offer smoother collaboration workflows hosted in Creative Cloud and the ability to more easily manage versions and auto-saves.

Virtual reality video creation will be possible with a dedicated viewing environment in Premiere Pro. Editors can experience the deeply engaging qualities of content, review their timeline and use keyboard-driven editing for trimming and markers, while wearing the same VR head-mounts as their audience. In addition, audio can be determined by orientation or position and exported as ambisonics audio for VR-enabled platforms such as YouTube and Facebook. VR effects and transitions are now native and accelerated via the Mercury playback engine.

Character Animator 1.0 is unveiled with changes to core and custom animation functions, such as pose-to-pose blending, new physics behaviors and visual puppet controls. Adobe Sensei helps improve lip-sync capability by accurately matching mouth shape with spoken sounds.

Adobe Audition adds flexible session organization to multi-take workflows and continuous playback while editing. Powered by Adobe Sensei, auto-ducking is added to the Essential Sound panel that automatically adjusts levels by type: dialogue, background sound or music.
