What's new In Premiere Pro 2015.3?
“The new versions of Premiere Pro and Adobe Media Encoder contain all the features we previewed at NAB in April, including powerful new Media Management features, which allow you to copy media and edit it during ingest, transcode media on ingest, and generate lightweight proxy versions of RAW/Native files which can be switched to and from with a single click. New features in the Lumetri color panel include powerful new HSL Secondaries, new SpeedLooks linear looks, support for color control surfaces, enhanced Lumetri scopes and support for monitoring Rec2020 color space. Also new is amazing new support for VR Video workflows, which enables you to enter a specific monitoring mode with equirectangular stitched media to experience the view from inside the sphere. When you have completed your editing – publish to Facebook or YouTube with the correct metadata tags for a 360 viewing experience.” – Adobe
What's new in After Effects2015 (13.8)?
“For this version we focused on performance, and how to make the things you touch every day faster. From import to final render, we’re fine-tuning the experience of working After Effects. A new preview architecture shares technology with Premiere Pro and Audition, and offers smooth playback and instant audio preview. We’ve begun accelerating some of our most popular effects using the GPU. New Maxon Cinema 4D export options offer a live roundtrip motion graphics workflow. (And don’t forget that Cinema 4D Lite is included with After Effects!) When you’re ready to export, tighter integration with Adobe Media Encoder means you can send queued render items with their render settings directly to the most popular delivery codecs.” – Adobe
This release also includes Character Animator Preview 4. Creating and rigging a character is faster and easier, with a new tag-based rigging system. Lip sync improvements and new Motion Trigger and Auto Blink behaviors offer new ways to add life to your characters. Blend multiple takes together, or perform live via Syphon on macOS.
What's new in Audition 2015.2?
“Just as we simplified color grading with Premiere Pro’s Lumetri Color panel, our new Essential Sound panel in Audition provides an intuitive, friendly experience that focuses on creative intent, rather than technical jargon. The panel invites users to assign mix types to their clips, identifying the role each clip plays in the project such as Dialogue or Sound Effects. The panel then exposes effects and tools appropriate for that content. For example, Dialogue clips can be analyzed and set to a uniform loudness, have background noise or interference reduced, and add compression and EQ for improved clarity with simple sliders and options. The much-loved Remix feature in Audition can be easily applied to music clips with a single click. Environmental sounds can easily be given more depth and space.” – Adobe
