Adobe has highlighted major new capabilities that have been added to their video editing tools in advance of the NAB 2023 broadcast industry exhibition. These include AI-powered text-based editing, considerable GPU acceleration, and new methods to quickly collaborate in the most recent version of Premiere Pro (which, by the way, was used to edit over sixty percent of the films that were shown at the most recent Sundance Festival).
Text-based editing is not the same as speech-to-text conversion, which Premiere Pro (opens in new tab) is already capable of doing (though it has learned several additional languages since it was first released). It instead implies that an editor may access the transcript and cut and paste sections of it, similar to how a word processor works, and have Premiere Pro change the timeline accordingly.

This significantly reduces the amount of time required to make a rough cut. If you are not currently a customer of Adobe Cloud, you may get a free trial of Premiere Pro by clicking the link above, which will open a new tab.
Editors who deal with a variety of HDR material will definitely be thankful for the Auto Tone Mapping Feature and Log Color Detection, both of which give a rapid way to utilize footage from multiple cameras. Editors who work with a mix of HDR footage will undoubtedly be glad for these features. Without the need of LUTs (lookup tables) or any manual tweaking, the program is able to generate color that is consistent.
Acceleration is a primary focus of each and every one of the significant upgrades as well. Adobe is eager to stress how much work has been done “under the hood” to guarantee that GPUs are capable of carrying their part of the workload. In addition to being able to work with 8K film in the timeline, you will also notice that scopes and transitions are much faster.
The option to lock a sequence you are working on or take a piece of a bigger project offline is one of the features that facilitates collaborative working. Teamwork is essential to the success of any endeavor, and this feature is just one of several that facilitates collaborative working. These make use of Creative Cloud, but Adobe is also increasing cooperation with Frame.io (opens in new tab), a technology for live production collaboration that the company purchased in 2022.
Frame.io is available at no additional cost to those who have a subscription to either the Creative Cloud App Apps package or individual subscriptions to Premiere Pro and After Effects.
After Effects also receives enhancements, one of which is the addition of a context-sensitive
In addition to the enhancements made to Premiere, the Properties Panel, ACES, and OpenColorIO are being introduced with the intention of ensuring that colors behave in the same manner across all applications. There are also some enhancements meant to “fix common issues without the need for assistance from an IT expert,” which may include some remedies for security bottlenecks.
The Adobe Creative Cloud now includes new capabilities that will be available to customers in May. These new features will be pushed out for Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Frame.io.
