What is Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015?

Premiere Pro CC năm ngoái is the most recent update to lớn Adobe’s flagship non-linear đoạn phim editing package. Now that the software is exclusively available via the Creative Cloud service, updates are more incremental và there is less hoopla when a major new release arrives.

There have been a few sub-versions since I reviewed the first version of Premiere Pro CC, including improvements to the first release, and three iterations of the 2014 version. Here, I take a look at what’s new in the 2015.0.2 release, aka 9.0.2.

Adobe Premiere Pro CC năm ngoái – Morph Cut và Colour Workflows

There aren’t a whole lot of new effects in this version of Premiere Pro, but one in particular is garnering a fair bit of interest. The Morph Cut transition is designed for those times when you’ve shot a talking head but only have one usable camera angle, & not much B-roll for cutaways. So when it’s necessary to reduce the interview length, you either kết thúc up with a jump cut or have to use a cross dissolve that is almost as bad.

Enter the Morph Cut. This analyses the background, so it can figure out which bit of the frame is the talking head, then blends the two clips together so there is a seamless flow from one section khổng lồ the next. I tried this on a corporate video clip with a well lit, contrasting background & the result was surprisingly good, although there was some spurious mouth motion along the way. This didn’t look out of place, & I can safely say I will be using this transition in interview work from now on.

Another significant area of enhancement is colour. Adobe acquired IRIDAS’s excellent SpeedGrade around four years ago, & it has been part of the Creative Cloud offering since with CS6. However, for lots of jobs SpeedGrade is overkill, especially for a quick bit of grading. So Adobe has brought technologies from SpeedGrade & Lightroom into Premiere Pro. This is provided via a new Lumetri colour workspace.

This isn’t so much a new filter effect but a whole toolbox inside Premiere Pro. The end results are still applied via the Lumetri colour filter, which has existed in some form since Premiere Pro CC first arrived. But there are now windows for Lumetri Scopes and color adjustments. The màu sắc workspace preset rearranges the Premiere Pro interface so the Lumetri màu sắc settings window is on the right and the Scopes window is on the left.

You don’t get sophisticated functions from SpeedGrade lượt thích the colour matching ability (which is a quite astounding feature). But you bởi get a whole bunch of Look presets; the ability khổng lồ import external looks and LUTs in most of the popular formats; a selection of adjustments including sharpening, fading, vibrance and saturation; và tint colour wheels for shadows & highlights. So quite powerful grading is available without the need khổng lồ leave the Premiere Pro interface, which will definitely make proper grading even more popular than it has already become.

Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015 – Workspaces và Collaboration

Although Premiere Pro has had customisable workspaces for a while, with 2015 there is now a whole selection of these, the màu sắc option being just one. There are also Assembly, Editing, Effects, Audio, & Metalogging layouts. All can be reconfigured and saved, và you can create your own as well. The Welcome screen you see when you first load the software has had a makeover, too, although you probably won’t be spending a lot of time looking at that.

Collaborative working và the cloud are increasingly in vogue, & Adobe has been developing tools lớn leverage this for a few years now. More link with these facilities are now built into Premiere Pro CC. You don’t get the full range of what can be stored in the Creative Cloud Libraries within Premiere Pro CC, however. đoạn clip assets aren’t included, just Lumetri Looks, graphics, character styles & colours. You can create libraries of assets, synchronise them via Creative Cloud, và share them with collaborators so they appear right inside their own copy of Premiere Pro và can be used on their projects.
There is direct tư vấn for the Adobe Premiere video clip smartphone app, which lets you grab footage, perform some simple editing, and then sync khổng lồ your Creative Cloud space. The footage & project tệp tin will then appear on your desktop system và can be edited further there. Dragging the XML tệp tin created khổng lồ Premiere Pro CC imports the project và all associated clips. There’s a direct links to the Adobe Stock service, too, và Adobe Anywhere collaboration system, although this requires an Enterprise-level account with associated server software.

Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015 – Sundry New Features

One of the big strengths of all of Adobe’s applications is their ability lớn exchange nội dung without the need to render out. This has been further improved between Premiere Pro CC 2015 and Audition. You can now export khổng lồ Audition with preview video streamed directly from the Premiere Pro engine via Dynamic Link, rather than having to lớn wait for a preview render.

A small but potentially handy new feature is the Time Tuner facility in Adobe media Encoder. In a broadcast environment where clip sequences have lớn be a precise length, instead of re-editing a sequence manually lớn fit, this facility allows you lớn trim or địa chỉ up to 10% to the duration automatically, by adding or removing frames at points of less action. I tried this with a corporate đoạn phim that I recently completed, và export took much longer. I also found some very strange behaviour, with audio speeding up & disappearing entirely. So whilst this is a nice idea, it seems lớn need a bit more work before you can rely on it in a production environment.
There are plenty of smaller enhancements, too. You can now move the anchor point in the Program Monitor simply by dragging it. Items can be hidden in the Project panel, for a less cluttered listing. You can also sort clips via XMP data. If you load a sequence into the Source window & alter the in và out points, you can now create a subsequence directly from that. None of this is earth-shattering, but potentially useful at some point.
Every new version of a đoạn clip editing application will include expanded tệp tin format support, because new formats seem lớn be arriving faster than PPI claims spam. In this version, there’s Avid’s DNxHD with compressed alpha (although the main format has been supported for ages), Canon XF-AVC (as used by the Canon XC10), táo khuyết ProRes 4444XQ, JPEG 2000 MXF Op1a, & Panasonic 4K_HS.
The support for digital cinema formats has been enhanced as well. You can now gain access lớn the source settings for RED, ARRI, CinemaDNG, DPX, and Sony F65 files, allowing you to adjust how these are interpreted. This is controlled via the Master tab in the Effect Control panel. In the other direction, at long last Dolby 5.1 export is also supported, & you can export AAF files directly from Premiere Pro, with a reference video clip mixdown included & linked khổng lồ automatically.

Should I buy Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015?

If you have a Creative Cloud subscription, you will already have Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015, or at least the option to lớn install it as part of your monthly payment. Conversely, there is no killer new feature here that will specifically lure users of other editing packages over who haven’t been persuaded before. The new built-in grading toolset comes close, and the Morph Cut transition is a very welcome enhancement too, but on their own they are unlikely khổng lồ sway your opinion.

However, Premiere Pro CC is already a pretty persuasive package. One of its biggest strengths remains the way it integrates with other Adobe applications, so you can (for example) export audio directly into Audition for powerful enhancement, & import title sequences directly from After Effects without having lớn render them out. Those who are serious about their video clip editing always have a favourite, from which it’s hard khổng lồ convince them to lớn change. But Adobe Premiere Pro CC năm ngoái remains a serious contender with even more powerful features for the professional video clip editor.
