The Adobe Video World Virtual Conference is currently happening and Adobe has announced new features for Premiere Pro as well as performance improvements for After Effects & Audition.
New features in Premiere Pro include HDR for Broadcasters and Scene Edit Detection.
Scene Edit Detection
Using Scene Edit Detection allows editors to quickly find cuts in previously edited video, faster and more accurately. The feature adds cuts and markers so that users can apply effects to individual shots and re-edit previously rendered content quickly and efficiently.
HDR for Broadcasters
This new feature enables users to produce programming in Rec2100 HLG HDR for modern HDR broadcasting, including automatic color conversion, HDR scope support, color space overrides for incorrect metadata, and full color management for Apple ProRes and Sony XAVC Intra formats.
Quick Export (in public Beta)
Quick Export offers easy access to the most popular and frequently used export settings, right from the header bar in Premiere Pro. Editors can use the default, high-quality H.264 output with matched Source Settings or choose from a short list of H.264 presets that allow you reduce the size of your export files.
- ProRes multicam performance in Premiere Pro can support up to 2x more streams, accelerating editing workflows with this widely used format.
- Coming shortly to After Effects, Channel effects are now GPU-accelerated, providing up to 1.65x faster performance. These include Minimax, Shift Channels, Set Channels, and Channel Combine.
- OpenEXR Previews for multipart and multichannel files are now up to 3x faster in After Effects. (This improvement was included in the August performance update for After Effects.)
- Faster Effects scanning for VST3 and Audio Unit (AU) plugins in Audition and Premiere Pro means faster launch times for users with third-party audio plugins. Effects scanning is up to 15x faster on macOS and up to 10x faster on Windows.
After Effects Updates
After Effects will also be receiving new features including 3D Transform Gizmods & updated Camera Navigation Tools which are available to try in the public Beta versions.
3D Transform Gizmos
helps users navigate a scene faster and more intuitively. Users can scale, position, and rotate layers with helpful guides that show how far a layer or object has been moved and how many degrees it has been rotated. Users also can switch between gizmo modes to focus on a single task and make precision adjustments efficiently.
Camera Navigation Tools
Reimagined to give artists an intuitive and flexible approach to navigate 3D spaces. The new default scene camera streamlines scene setup. Adding multiple cameras to a scene showcases various viewpoints: intuitively orbit, pan, and dolly around objects using customizable keyboard shortcuts.
