Last week, Adobe revealed their forthcoming updates for their Creative Cloud video applications. Not only did Premiere Pro get some massive updates to its color correction abilities, but Adobe also unveiled an entirely new piece of software called Character Animator that brings rudimentary motion capture tools to everybody.
Our very own David Plummer caught up with Patrick Palmer of Adobe to chat about these updates.
The major theme of this round of updates is color correction. After two years of flirting with bringing SpeedGrade features directly into Premiere Pro (with Lumetri Looks and things like that), Adobe has finally brought some of the core abilities of their grading software directly into Premiere. The brand new Color workspace not only contains an redesigned color tools, upgraded version of the SpeedGrade scopes, and some nice LUT features, but it also contains a host of simple adjustments borrowed directly from Adobe's photo editing software Lightroom.
This round of updates to the Creative Cloud video apps has not been released yet, but likely will be within the next few months. Character Animator, on the other hand, is just showing as an early preview at NAB, and the timeframe for its release is less clear.
