Available Now: The Latest Release for Creative Cloud Video and Audio Tools

Smarter tools, better performance, connected animation workflows, and all-new Premiere Rush CC — delivered at Adobe MAX 2018.

Featured in Creativity

We are delighted to announce the release of the latest versions of the Adobe video and audio tools, including Adobe Sensei AI-powered features, new cross-application workflows for animators, a host of productivity and performance improvements, and an all-new addition to our product family: Premiere Rush CC.  

New Adobe Premiere Rush CC

Now you can take your video editing on the road (or anywhere else) with Premiere Rush CC — an all-new, cross-device app that allows you to create and share professional-quality video. Built on core Adobe technologies, Premiere Rush gives you the power to capture, create, and deliver online content no matter where you are. And when you need to take your work to the next level, native Premiere Rush projects can be opened in Premiere Pro.

Smarter tools with Adobe Sensei

Adobe leads the industry with Adobe Sensei — artificial intelligence (AI) features that help artists accelerate mechanical tasks so that they can put more time into their art. And the newest Adobe Sensei-powered tools are no exception.

Characterizer, now part of Adobe Character Animator CC, utilizes AI capabilities to unlock a new level of artistry. First unveiled as Project Puppetron at an Adobe MAX sneak peek, Characterizer transforms artwork into animated characters. Bring original art into Character Animator, and Characterizer helps you turn it into a new, unique character puppet in seconds. Record performances as you would with any Character Animator puppet.

Another Adobe Sensei technology, originally introduced in Character Animator, is Auto Lip Sync, now included with Animate CC. Auto Lip Sync transforms performance-captured mouth movements into realistic speech animation.

Additional smarter tools include new Intelligent Audio Cleanup in Audition and Premiere Pro. Reduce Noise and Reduce Reverb sliders in the Essential Sound panel make removing reverb and background noise easier than ever.

Advances in animation

Adobe is committed to pushing the boundaries of animation, whether it’s with new AI-powered technology or reimagining traditional ways to animate. Now, animators can realize their visions faster with new integrated workflows that are streamlined for more powerful creation.

  • Animate CC to After Effects: Open your Adobe Animate CC project directly in After Effects for additional refinement. You’ll find all layers and sound organization intact and be able to explore additional compositing and effects, applying the powerful After Effects toolset to your Animate layers.
  • Adobe XD to After Effects: The connected workflow between these two applications allows you to bring motion to your Adobe XD designs through the power of After Effects.
  • Animate CC and Character Animator CC: Character Animator can now import EPS and SVG graphics. Animate CC exports SVG graphics as well, allowing artists to bring Animate elements into Character Animator for use in a different scenario.

In addition, After Effects CC offers new Mesh Sculpting tools like Advanced Puppet pins that add life to your animations. Depth passes allow you to position 3D objects in space and easily add dimensional elements into video scenes. Expressions are easier to create and run up to five times faster than before. And be sure to check out the slick new authoring capabilities for Motion Graphics templates.

The best editing and audio tools just got better

Adobe is constantly working to improve and enhance the post-production tools we offer, including updates to Premiere Pro and Audition.

Premiere Pro CC now includes Selective Color Grading, five new curve tools that make precision color correction easier and faster — a vertical axis shows you the adjustment range available when you drag a point on the curve. New end-to-end 180 VR support includes optimized ingest, editorial, and effects for monoscopic and stereoscopic 180 content, and sleek refinements to the motion graphics workflows will save users time.

Audition CC offers intelligent audio cleanup for reducing reverb and noise along with faster recording and mixing in multitrack. You’ll find all the tools you’ll need for audio projects of any kind, including video, broadcast, podcast content, sound design, and more. Playback 128 tracks and record 32 tracks, all at low latencies with no drop-outs — and no proprietary hardware required. Explore and enjoy a beautifully polished UI.
