Adobe release updates today for its pro video applications including Adobe Premiere Pro CC, After Effects CC, Adobe Media Encoder CC, SpeedGrade CC, Adobe Audition CC, Adobe Story CC Plus, and Adobe Prelude CC. The 2014.2 release offers feature enhancements and updates, including YouTube and Vimeo uploading via Destination Publishing in Media Encoder CC for an easier, more integrated workflow when sending video content to these destinations.
Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2014.2 update includes a number of feature enhancements for editors, including support for Arri Open Gate media, the ability to set transitions and still image default durations in either seconds or frames, and improved GoPro Cineform export. In addition, QuickTime and GoPro Cineform codecs can now be used as sequence preview file formats on Windows
The 2014.2 update of After Effects CC provides more control over text through scripts and expressions. Additionally, based on customer feedback, the team made visual tweaks to the UI such as making the keyframe icons a bit brighter to standout better against the UI background.
Along with Destination Publishing to YouTube and Vimeo, the Media Encoder CC update includes updated Vimeo and GoPro CineForm presets, the option to automatically append preset names to output file names, the ability to export audio channels as separate WAV files, and more. Adobe Audition, Adobe Prelude and SpeedGrade offer a number improvements as well.
Adobe Premiere Pro CC was used to edit David Fincher’s thriller Gone Girl, which has been enjoying considerable success at the box office this fall. “When it came down to it, Adobe Premiere Pro CC was faster than anything else in the market,” said Jeff Brue of Open Drives who served as postproduction engineer on the film. “That speed meant more iterations, more time to work on a shot, and more time to perfect an edit.” Many of the features introduced in Premiere Pro and After Effects were born of the collaboration with David Fincher’s postproduction team on Gone Girl, including new project management capabilities and usability enhancements.”
“2014, has been exciting for us,” said Bill Roberts, senior director of product management. “We kicked things off with Sundance last January and ended strong with Gone Girl. Along the way we’ve been able to add great new features, like tighter workflows between Premiere Pro and After Effects, an integrated editing and grading pipeline, and our all-new Premiere Clip app for making great videos quickly and easily on your iOS device. We’re happy to round off the year with these new updates adding more functionality, refinements, and an improved overall user experience.”
