News: Adobe Announces New Tools & Features for Video at Adobe MAX
Highlights include much-anticipated Auto Reframe, Character Animator 3, multilayer EXR support, and performance and stability improvements
(San Jose, CA--November 4, 2019) Today at Adobe MAX, Adobe announced the latest release for Creative Cloud, empowering video professionals to work smarter, deliver faster, and do more creatively, including Auto Reframe in Premiere Pro, which previewed at IBC earlier this year. Available today, the new versions of Premiere Pro, After Effects, Character Animator, Audition, and Premiere Rush offer performance improvements and workflow refinements that empower you to work smarter, deliver faster, and do more creatively.
Do more creatively
The Adobe applications provide creative environments for exploring ideas freely – and precision controls for refining the results until you have the story you want. To that end, we’re excited to bring you Character Animator 3.0 in this newest release. Character Animator introduces new scene cameras that enrich your animations with camera moves, add dynamics to dialog, and bring rhythm to your narrative.
Time remapping in Premiere Pro is now extended to 20,000%. This tool offers you options for accenting moments in your story with creative speed changes. For VFX work, support for multilayer EXR files in After Effects allows you to finesse effects on individual layers of your images for photoreal results or stylized looks. As a storyteller, you have the vision – our tools empower you to achieve it.

Adobe Sensei is our name for artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technologies that accelerate time-consuming video production tasks. Today we’re releasing the latest Adobe Sensei innovation: Auto Reframe in Premiere Pro. Using this tool, your carefully crafted film can now be optimized for square, vertical, 16:9, or custom aspect ratios. With the wide variety of modern viewing platforms used today, Auto Reframe will save hours of time by removing the tedious task of manually reformatting your content with shot-by-shot keyframing.
Auto Reframe uses Adobe Sensei technology to analyze your footage and apply intelligent panning and cropping to keep the action in the frame. It can be applied to individual clips or to whole sequences. The results are adjustable; you retain creative control.
In an age of growing content velocity, the Adobe applications enable you to move through projects faster while maintaining high quality standards, thanks to flexible and efficient workflows and robust native format support. Building on these core strengths, the latest releases deliver performance improvements, such as real-time playback for cached previews in After Effects, so you can iterate faster on motion graphics (and Motion Graphics templates).
Work with Apple ProRes HDR in Premiere Pro – on both macOS and Windows.
Careful retooling in Premiere Pro provides improved playback for widely used formats, like H264, HEVC, and Apple ProRes. ProRes HDR runs up to 10x faster. Other enhancements include multichannel audio effects workflows and faster scrolling in the Premiere Pro Project panel – details that help you get your project to the finish line more easily.
Creative workflows across the Adobe applications
The creative process often means dipping into other applications to create different elements for your projects. With Adobe Creative Cloud you almost always have the tools you need right at hand, from Photoshop for images to Audition for audio – not to mention hundreds of third-party tools, providing connected workflows, even for specialized tasks. Premiere Rush extends your editing platform across your Android, iOS, macOS, and Windows devices so you can capture, edit, and publish video from almost anywhere. Services like Adobe Stock provide direct access to professionally designed motion graphics and curated original footage, perfect for enhancing video projects with fresh visuals or filling in gaps, without hiring a whole production team.
